Starbucks Inspired Christmas Ornament Wreath

I wanted to share with you one of my most favourite wreaths ever!

I made this one a few years ago, after I saw similar ones in Starbucks. I remember when I saw these my heart did a little pitter patter! So I sipped my eggnog latte while I studied them very carefully, then I ran, literally ran to Michaels to buy the supplies to make one for myself!

Starbucks Inspired DIY Christmas Ornament Wreath

Putting together a wreath like this, really is quite easy.  All you need are a few simple and easy to find supplies, and about 1 hour, or more depending on how fast you want to work.

Here’s what you need:

1 grapevine wreath
~ 40 shatterproof ornaments in red – I used shiny, glittery and matte balls
2 sizes of styrofoam balls, about 35
2 shades of green yarn
glue gun

  • Wrap the styrofoam balls in the yarn.
  • Then with your glue gun, randomly glue on the balls.  Go wild!
  • Tip!  I find it easier to glue on the ornaments when I hang the wreath on a door first.  That way you can see what you’re doing a lot easier.
  • Yes, it’s really that easy!

Love it so much! And it looks so pretty and festive on my front door!  Come see it on my Christmas porch!

I have some craft store coupons to use and I think this may be my next project! I have a space on my kitchen door that could use some Holiday cheer. Thanks so much for sharing!

    I made those sweet potato biscuits last night to go with creamy potato soup. Boy are those delicious! That recipe is definitely a keeper. : )

  • Reply lulumusing December 7, 2011 at 4:37 AM I remembered those as well and made a mental note to give it a try which I did this year. They are such fun and other than taking a little time not hard to make. I posted it a couple of days ago along with the little ones the kids made. I like the fullness of yours. I ran out of balls but you've made me think to add more.

  • Reply Shirley R. September 22, 2012 at 11:58 AM I adore this! But I hate how you make it sound so easy! I'm not sure I could pull it off, but I would love to give it a try! Thinking of trying it in purples and golds... I don't think I could bear to see my finished project if it completely flopped though! :(

    It's gorgeous, very well done!
