Looking for a cheap and creative way to decorate your tree? Here is an easy tutorial on how to create a wreath ornament to keep your tree looking unique and festive. Each ornament takes about 5 minutes to make and this project only requires a couple items that you can find at your local arts&craft store.
You will need:
- Tiny pine garland (wired)
- 3″ Metal rings
- Jewelry pliers
- String or Fishing line
- 7mm Gold jump rings
Step 1:Take the pine garland and cut about 8-10 inches. Starting with the end of the pine garland,wrap it around the metal hoop; leaving space in between to show parts of the metal hoop. Once you have wrapped the garland around the hoop, ensure that the garland stays put by tightly wrapping the end twice.
Step 2:Find a spot in between the pine garland and attach one of the gold jump rings using your pliers to open and close the ring. Continue to add rings to create a chain until your satisfied with how low the charm hangs. Now attach the charm to the end of the chain and ensure that each jump ring is closed.
Step 3: Cut about 4 inches of the string/fishing line. Pull the string through the top jump ring, then make sure both ends meet and tie a knot.
Now your ornament is all ready to hang and display. What I love about this project is that you can personalize it with your favorite charms, and if you really want your ornaments to stand out you can use different color garlands. Hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial.
Happy crafting and happy holidays.
