Antique Ornament Wreath

I love the antique ornament wreaths that I have been seeing on various blogs over the past few years. I first came across these at Georgia Peachez. Rumor has it that her wreaths go for up to $200. So I started to rummage through our old ornaments and decided to try my hand at making a wreath. I assumed that given my other commitments it would take weeks before I would get the thing completed. Plus, I started to look for silver garland to wrap the form with a few weeks ago. I was lucky to find 3 packs at Walmart at the bargain price of  97 cents. The only other items I bought were the wreath form and a few tiny ornaments for filling in the small space. All in all, I spent  around $7.00. Everything else I had.

Here is the finished product and frankly it only took about a couple of hours to make. It really is much more attractive in person and this photo does not do justice to the final product.


  1. Your antique ornament wreaths looks great with beautiful balls combined together...

  2. Thanks all. It was a lot of fun to make.
