How to Make a Christmas Ball Wreath with a Coat Hanger
Wire Coat Hanger
Hot Glue Gun
50 Shatterproof Ornaments or Glass Balls (I recommend the plastic-just as pretty and easier to store)
Here is the coat hanger. Just untwist the top.
Use the pliers to straighten out any bumpy places...
until you have a nice circle like mine.
Before you begin sliding the balls onto the wire, check to make sure the tops are secure. This was the only style of ball (see picture below) that I could actually pull the top off of. So, I hot glued it down. For all the other balls I just went around the edge of the top with the glue just to make sure they would not fall off down the road. This step is very important if you are using glass balls.
Begin sliding the balls on the wire in whatever order you would like.
Keep doing this until the wreath is full.
Once you have all your balls on you will then want to secure the ends like so... My husband had to do some wire cutting at this point and twisting with the pliers, but it all went pretty smoothly. Just watch out for flying wire.
Grab some pretty wire ribbon and just weave it in and out of the balls. I went around two times total.
Here it is all finished!
This wreath is going to a friend! I can't wait to give it to her today! Have fun making your wreath. Send me a note if you have made your own wreath this year. I would love to see it! :)
