At a recent craft fair, I saw a booth that had some awesome vintage Christmas ornament wreaths. As soon as I got home, I started searching flea markets for vintage ornaments and found a few and started my wreath. Here’s how to make one of these beautiful wreaths using my vintage Christmas ornament wreath diy.
You will need a foam wreath and tinsel. Wrap the tinsel around the foam wreath. The tinsel I used had some wide strips in it so for my next one, I will find tinsel that has thinner strips. Take off the tops of some of the ornaments and glue them onto the wreath. Put some of the others in different positions.
I didn’t have enough of the real vintage ornaments to fill up my wreath. I just happened to find some awesome vintage styled Shiny Brite ornaments at TJ Maxx that look just like the real vintage ones. They even come in the coolest vintage-like boxes wrapped in paper. So, now I had enough to finish my wreath.
Like I said before, some of the tinsel strips were too thick so I gave some a trim to thin it out a little.
I am very pleased with how my shiny vintage Christmas ornament wreath turned out!
