Peace Sign Ornament Wreath

It’s not the holidays at the Cranston’s unless there is another wreath DIY! This year my motto was “go big or go home”. And by big I mean a 3 foot tall wreath! Made of ornaments.

When we moved into our current home 5 years ago, the previous owners left a giant wreath in the garage that they used to hang up outside. It was not my style so a couple years ago I tore everything off of the wreath form and just let it sit in my attic. This year I decided it was finally time to do something with it but I had no idea what. I started scrolling Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration, as I usually do, and my eyes were immediately drawn to the wreaths made of ornaments. I wanted to make something a bit more unique than just a regular circle wreath, so I decided I would turn the giant form int one of my favorite things – a peace sign!

It took me nearly my entire Veteran’s Day off of work to complete it, and I keep having to glue ornaments back on (thanks, kids) but it really turned out great and it is a great statement piece in my family room above my couch.

Supplies

  • Wire wreath form
  • Cardboard
  • Box cutter
  • Duct tape
  • Hot glue/glue gun
  • Mesh ribbon
  • TONS of shatter proof ornaments in a variety of colors and sizes
  • Tulle

Instructions

Wrap the wire wreath form with the mesh ribbon.

Cut out cardboard in three pieces to create a peace sign. Secure the cardboard in the shape of the peace sign using hot glue and duct tape and also secure it to the inside of the wreath form.

Glue bulbs around the outside diameter and inside diameter of the wreath form.

Fill in the remaining space on the wreath with ornaments, stacking some on top of others.

Tie a few tulle bows around the rim of the wreath.

Hang/display using a screw with an anchor and enjoy!
