DIY Ornament Arrangement

My house is wreck! It is covered in random Christmas mess! Deep in the process of putting up the Christmas Decorations I came up with this incredibly easy way to make something fabulous!! I saw an expensive but not so cute version at Lowe’s Hardware and thought “I can do better!” It is super easy and I used items I already had! Almost free sounds great this time of year!!

DIY Ornament Arrangement

Supplies:

  • 1 yard silver rope, mine has tassels on the ends.You could use a narrow ribbon and curl the ends, or even yarn
  • Short & long ornament hooks
  • random ornaments in different sizes and shapes,
  • ribbon for a bow,
  • a sprig of pine,
  • pieces of a silver snowflake garland

Instructions:

Take the rope and fold in half, place the ornaments and arrange to your liking. I used large ones on the top to small ones to dangle from the bottom. Fold your rope in half and wire it together with a hook (just bend it and wrap the wire around) to make a loop.

Hooks are so flexible and they are easier to use than floral wire. Take a hook and place on the ornament (as you normally would to hang from your tree) but bend the end near your ornament closed, this is so the ornament will not fall off.  Take the other end of the hook and wrap and bend tightly to the rope/ribbon. If you use ribbon you may want to poke the wire through it and wrap it to make it more stable.

Randomly add your ornaments. Hang it up while you are working, if you like, to see how it will look. You may have to adjust the ornaments to make the them look full and close together. Next I added a bow and a sprig of pine to the top and hung mine from my bannister garland. And that’s it! How easy was that!

    This looks great. Think I’m going to make something similar with my holly instead of a traditional wreath
