Repurposed curtain clip rings into easy wreath ornaments
I love miniature ornaments, and I’ve been collecting them for quite some time so that one day I’ll have enough to fill a small 4 foot tree with mini ornaments of all kinds.
That day isn’t here yet, so these easy wreath ornaments are a fun way to show off a few mini ornaments on a regular size tree.
For my wreath ornaments I’m using some metal curtain clip rings, sparkly pipe cleaners, some mini red bows, and some mini ceramic snowman ornaments.
Everything I’m using in this project came from thrift stores.
The snowmen are so cute, and they fit perfectly in the curtain clip rings.
This really couldn’t be easier. I just wrapped the pipe cleaners are the clip rings.
No glue required.
For the green wreath ornament I only had to use three pipe cleaners because they were nice and thick.
The silver and gold pipe cleaners were thinner, so I doubled them up when I wrapped them around the clip rings.
The snowmen ornaments came with their own gold string hangers, so I just wrapped them around the clip for them to hang.
If the strings are too long you have to tie them shorter, but mine were just the right length…which is another reason why I chose to use these cute little snowmen.
To finish off the wreath ornament, I attached a mini red bow with hot glue.
Done in five minutes.
So doing all three took about fifteen minutes.
When I’m creating I love to leave a nod to the things that I repurposed, so I’m keeping the clips that lovely snowy white.
But you could totally paint the clips out if you don’t want to see them.
And you could use whatever mini ornaments you have.
Don’t you just hate those hot glue strands? lol. I didn’t even notice them on this ornament until I was writing this post.
But you know what? Hot glue strands are just a part of creating.
We don’t have a tree up yet, so I’m hanging these easy wreath ornaments from a wreath.
How apropo is that?
