Please call me Martha from now on. I don't even recognize myself and I don't know how this whole domestication thing came about. I was one of those teenagers that had an insanely messy room with clothes strewn across the floor. I never ever made my bed and had blond and blue highlights in my hair. I would eat Doritos for lunch and sour watermelon gummies and ice cream for dinner. Now, I cook at home and make Christmas decorations in my free time. Hello, my name is Martha.
This was my original inspiration from Pottery Barn. It costs $79 and I obviously did not want to pay $79 for a wreath.
24-inch faux pine wreath
Glue gun & glue sticks
Variety of Christmas ornaments
Ornament ties or floral wire
Tie the ornaments around the wreath with either ornament ties or floral wire (you will need wire cutters if you use wire). Start with the big ornaments first and then the smaller ones. Glue the ornaments to the wreath and let it dry overnight. Trim the ties with scissors. Check on the wreath the next day to ensure that the ornaments are secure. Tie the ribbon on the top and you are done!

I was originally going to buy wire to do this but then I noticed that the ties were included in the box of ornaments so I decided to use that instead. I bought the ornaments and faux pine wreath at Target.
I went a little crazy with the ornaments. It looks like a big bubbly Christmas wreath to me now but I like it :)
