DIY Vintage Ornament Wreath

I love DIY projects! Especially when they’re easy as pie! Last year I had my eye on several vintage ornament wreaths. I loved their bright colors and sparkle, but their price tags made them not shine quite as bright. Most of them were around $200 and up. Yikes!
I decided I would make one of my own this year and kept my eye out for good deals on ornaments throughout the year. I found the vintage silver tinsel wreath at a flea market for $15.00, it has little white lights in it too. The ornaments were found at yard sales and flea markets, most were around 50 cents each.
DIY Vintage Ornament Wreath
What you will need:
Tinsel Wreath (Mine is vintage, however any ol’ wreath will do.)
Vintage Ornaments
Hot Glue Gun
Now listen real carefully, this is where is gets tricky… Arrange the ornaments on the wreath and hot glue into place. Ha! Told you it was easy.
The most time-consuming part about this project is finding all the vintage ornaments. It’s not as tricky as it sounds. You’d be surprised at how many you will stumble upon at flea markets and yard sales throughout the year. Just keep your eyes out, I found most of mine in August. (Prices are a little better that time of year as well.)

    If you love Shiny Brite, you'll love seeing some of my other decorations this year. I love Shiny Brite too! That's kind of my theme this year. I don't quite have 500, but I surprised myself at how many I rounded up this year. Fun stuff!

    Haha, you're too sweet. It was one of those "wait, where's my glue gun" type of projects. Quick and painless.

    I love it! I wish I could come across vintage ornaments for .50 each. Even when I was seriously collecting them several years ago, I was lucky to find them for $1, most were $2. lol Maybe some day I’ll get lucky and find some at an estate sale for a bargain basement price (with any luck – fingers crossed).
