DIY Vintage Ornament Wreath!

Greetings Friends! By now you know my affection for Vintage ornaments.  I shop thrift stores and yard sales for them all year to get my fix! As promised, today I am sharing how to make your own Vintage ornament wreath....

I chose Vintage ornaments for the two wreaths I made, but you could use any type you like.  I spent some time gathering mine and then used dollar store foam wreaths.  The white tinsel is from Walmart.  My local Wmart is not my favorite store but I loved the retro look of this sparkly white, so sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!

I wrapped the wreath with tinsel and secured it with hot glue, until it looked nice and full.

I took my time placing ornaments and arranging them.  Last, I hot glued them with high temp glue sticks.  Since I had "just the spot" waiting for my white wreath, I got a little carried away and forgot to get a photo before hanging it but here's the silver one...
