- Wedding: May 2012
So I’m sure you’ve seen the Christmas ball wreaths that were floating around the internet a couple weeks ago… well, here’s my take on it, Wedding Style:
Form your wire into the shape you want. Keep in mind that it will be as thick as a Christmas ball on each side of the wire. Leave extra wire at the end to tie off.
Hot glue the tops onto each Christmas ball. I thought I could skip this step. Ended up causing me a lot of frustration and wasted time!
Load the balls onto the wire in whatever pattern you want. I tried the random pattern first but didn’t like it, so I ended up doing a swirl pattern.
When you get the shape all filled up, just tie the wire off and you’re done!
My thought is to hang this on the door to our reception venue. People will walk by it on their way to our ceremony site. After the wedding, I think we’ll use it as decoration in the house!
Hit up the Christmas Clearance aisles to make your own!
