Christmas DIY: Vintage Ornament Wreath

Good morning everyone.

Hoping your weekend was wonderful. We are getting into some more posts about Christmas here at Oliver and Rust. If you missed my first simple diy post, you can find the amazing lightbulb ornaments here.

Today we are making an awesome ornament wreath.


There are quite a few tutorials out there for this but I am going to add my 2 cents to the mix anyways.

I wanted 2 wreaths for the doors in our dining room but not the traditional greenery wreaths. I saw some of these wreaths when reading one of my Christmas magazines and of course decided I could make them in my colour scheme and so can you.


  • 50-60 various sized ornaments (the various part is important, you need all different sizes to fill in gaps)
  • wreath form 
  • glue gun
  •  floral wire/twine/string for hanging

I used a green styrofoam wreath form and made a green ball wreath. If you are making different colour tones, consider using a cheaper fabric and wrap the wreath so that you don't have a green wreath peeking through


I wanted my wreath to be vintage ornaments but collecting 120+ vintage green ornaments in a few days was unrealistic and could make this project expensive. I made the first layer with plastic green ornaments from Walmart. Just cover the outer and inner circles as shown with a bit of spacing with the same size ornaments.

Before you start adding all of the top ornaments, add a way to hang your wreath. I used a simple piece of floral wire.


Start working in sections and fill in with your different sizes until no wreath is showing

 Hang and enjoy your creation!

Have a fantastic day,
