Mini Ornament Wreath

I am a little addicted to Ornament Wreaths – I just love them! But you only have one front door, so I thought of the super fun idea to make a Mini Ornament Wreath – perfect for a tree ornament!  I really love how this came out.  I saw mini ornaments at the craft store and came up with this idea.  With a FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Disc and a cutter, I had a tiny mini wreath form in no time.

Supplies needed to make this project:

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Disc or Wreath (in desired size for wreath)
  • FloraCraft® StyroCutter® Plus
  • Various Mini Ornaments
  • Twine for hanging
  • Low-Temp Glue Gun & Glue

Instructions:

If you have never tried the StyroCutter Plus foam cutting tool, you need to – it’s life-changing!  It and the Smooth Finish are two of my favorite, lesser-known tools for working with foam.  You are going to take your disc and cut out the center to create a mini wreath form.

Using the glue gun, attach the ornaments to the foam wreath.  I started with the bigger ones (which still are really small!)

And then I started filling in with the smaller ones.

Just keep going until the whole wreath is covered to your desired fullness.

For the hanger, I used two loops of twine.  I secured it to the wreath in the back with the glue.

And that’s it! It turned out super cute!!

Here you can get a sense for how small it is – about the size of a hand!
