Our new house calls for new Christmas decorations and while we haven’t got around to painting the front door just yet I thought I’d add a splash of the turquoise colour I love so much despite it not really matching with the red/brown/cranberry the door colour is currently.
This wreath took a total of 15 minutes to make (if you don’t count the drying time because I opted to use a craft glue which will make sure the ornaments will stick for years to come but took a wee bit of time to dry).
Here’s what you need to make a Super Easy DIY Initial Christmas Ornament Wreath in the colours you love for your front door (new or old).
- Glue (I used craft glue but it took a while to dry – glue gun would work too!)
- Wood letter
- Ornaments in Different Sizes in Colours Your Love (I used about 25 in total)
Cut a piece of ribbon the size you need to be able to hang on your front door then wrap the centre of your ribbon in the centre of your letter and glue on both the back and the front.
Remove the hooks (if desired) from the top of your ornaments and start gluing them in place. I glued the large ones down first.
Allow to dry completely (this will take longer if you are using craft glue but will be a bit quicker if using a glue gun).
When bottom layer is dry apply smaller ornaments on top (yes I did use my husband’s beer glasses to hold everything in place while the glue dried).
Allow to dry overnight then tie a knot at the top of your ribbon and hang using an upside down hook on the back of your door.
