Tired of throwing away chipped Christmas ball ornaments? Well, why not make a Christmas wreath from them.
You can use wire coat hangers, left over Christmas ribbon (or any other kind of ribbon) as well to make this a really recycled project.
You will need:
Glass ball ornaments (chipped, missing hangers, they donít have to be in tiptop shape)
Circular wire form (or a wire coat hanger)
Christmas ribbon (at least 2Ē wide and long enough to weave around the circle)
Hot glue
Thin wire
Christmas (florals) optional

If youíre using a wire coat hanger, bend the wire into a circle. You will need to snip off the hook and carefully unwind the twisted neck using needlenose pliers.
Weave a long length of ribbon in and out of the wire form. (Think of one end of the wire as a needle and thread the needle in and out of the ribbon) This is much easier if the ribbon had eyelets or is a mesh.
Leave the end criss-crossed and hanging off the bottom.
Attach a bow or Christmas florals to the top using thin wire and /or hot glue.
Glue the ornaments onto the wire form and finally attach a bow and/or christmas florals to the bottom.
Hang your wreath where it can be admired.
