so, discounting the hot glue, would you recommend something else? or not using anything at all?

I would use some really hardcore craft/multipurpose glue for metal and glass (I used hot glue instead because I was working inside and doing a LOT of gluing and didn't want to breathe in fumes), but I'm done with the big glass balls anyway 'cause they break so easily. Plastic would be your best bet, especially if you could find the pre-wired balls they use in flower arrangements and whatnot. They would make life soooo much easier (Someone tell me if you know where to find any!)

The really small balls (like 3/4 in or so) work REALLY well as an alternative and you can just string their metal rings on a wire after gluing with decent glue. I can dig out a picture of the smaller wreath too to give you a better idea of what I'm talking about.

Please go see my shop!

I didnt want to create a new topic when someone already had made one for this similar project.

I made three of these for family this year.
