DIY Christmas Wreath

Hello Lovelies,
 this year`s Christmas would be really colorful.
Nothing traditional, like red or green.
We would have purple, gold and pink at our tree;) 
I thought bout making an ornament wreath myself...

Dieses Jahr wird Weihnachten bei uns bunt.
Nichts traditionelles, wie rot oder grün, sondern lila, gold und pink.
Einfach mal was anderes und dazu habe ich mir überlegt einen
Weihnachtskugel-Kranz zu basteln.

Really colorful;)


Schööööön bunt;)

You will need some ornaments,
 (I bought  some made from plastic, not the glass ones, they might crack.)
Than some wire and a good old glue gun;)
You have to shape the wire in a circle the size you like
and than start to bead and glue the
ornaments on them.
And that`s how it looked yesterday...


Deswegen gab es gestern einen Besuch im Baumarkt und Bastelladen;)
Ich habe mir ein paar riesen Packungen
Baumschmuck besorgt und alten Draht,
den ich zu einem Kreis gebogen habe.
So sah das dann gestern mittag aus

and this it is today.

Just added some more ornaments to it...


und so schliesslich heute.
Ich habe noch mehr Kugeln für die Symmetrie hinzugefügt
und ich finde für den ersten Versuch kann er sich
sehen lasen.:)
Was denkt Ihr?

And here it is in action, just put them on a round tablett and
lightened some candles, and it is the prettiest wreath I ever made;))

Sehr schön! Wie hast du denn die Kugeln daran befestigt? Würd das auch gern probieren :)

@ Anonym
Das kann man auf dem dritten Bild ganz gut erkennen, denk ich.
Also erst einmal alles auf dünnen Draht fädeln und wenn es soweit gefällt mit Heisskleber fixieren.
Und fertig ist der Kranz;)

You know, I've made one of these, but I could never figure out why I didn't LOVE it. Now I know why! Your smaller ornaments stuck in there make it perfect! I'll have to "borrow" your idea. Thanks for sharing!
