Berry Wreath Ornament

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! 
We spent time with some good friends on Thanksgiving and then got the house all dressed for Christmas Friday and Saturday. Are you all decorated yet? 

I have another ornament for you today created using another mason jar lid. 


This is a pretty easy ornament which is always in my book! 

Here's how to create it.

Supplies:
-Outer Ring of a mason jar lid
-Wired pine branches (I snipped mine off of an old garland I had)
-Ribbon
-Mini Berries (found in the miniature figurine section at Michael's)
-Scissors
-Hot Glue Gun
-Spray Snow (optional)
-Mini Bells (optional)

 Begin by wrapping the pine branches around the outer ring. Again I snipped the pine from an old garland I had and used about 15 to completely wrap the ring.
No need to glue them down since the wire in the branch can be pressed and shaped to stay on the ring.

Wrap until the full ring is covered.

I then gave my wreath a bit of a haircut because it was just a little too wild looking for my liking.

I then used a can of spray snow to flock my wreath. Since it will be going on our normal green Christmas tree, I wanted to make sure you'd be able to see it. If you have a different tree, no need to do this step.
After spraying, let dry.

The snow was still a little wet, it was taking forever to dry, but it wasn't that big of a deal so I just continued on by creating a bow with some ribbon.

I then snipped the mini berries from their wire and hot glued them to the wreath, some in groups of three and others single.

I slipped another ribbon under the red ribbon and tied a loop for hanging.

And that's it! 
See, it is pretty easy! :)

Such a fun new addition and I love how the red pops off the flocking! 


Have you made any ornaments lately?
