Ornament Wreath – Monogram Style

I’ve been itching to make an ornament wreath after seeing so many in blog land over the past few weeks.  I decided to do an ornament wreath with a twist, our monogram.
Mr. SP made this wire form for me a few years ago and I never used it.  I intended to cover it with greenery, but he made a wooden form that ended up being much better for that purpose.  To keep the ornaments from sliding off, we cut a wine cork in half and used the drill press to hollow out holes in the end of the cork.  The ornaments end up hiding the cork pieces.
I bought a lot of ornaments because I had no idea how many it would take to cover this “S”.  I used almost 150 ornaments to cover the form in large, medium, and small sizes.
Eddie Ross recommended using a glue gun to glue the caps to the ornaments.  The ornaments that I bought were plastic and the cap didn’t come off.  The wire that my “S” is made of was too thick for the ornament holes, so I had to individually wire each ornament to the form.  Mr. SP found this cool red wire in the trash at his old job.  I’ve used it for a lot of projects and it really worked well on this one.
I wired and wired and then wired some more.  Almost finished!
Ta-Da!  The finished project!

  1. What a great twist (pun not intended) 🙂 on the ornament wreath! I love this idea! Your’s turned out beautifully!

  2. Oh my gosh….how cute is that? What a creative person, it’s so amazing. I love all these blogs……I get so many ideas. Very nice, you did a fabulous job. Would you be coming to Denver anytime soon? I have a house that needs a creative touch.

  3. So clever! I love when a good idea (like the Eddie Ross wreath) gets a new/personal spin! I think that’s what all this blog sharing is all about!

  4. Love your “S”. I haven’t seen this idea before.

    I can’t believe you were shopping at The Meating Place. We live exactly one mile from the market Best meat in the area. One of my relatives started the business.

  5. I love this and sooo unique to your home! That makes it even better. Thanks for sharing that. I made a wreath out of ornaments too but it is a traditional round one.


  6. Hi Paula. This is so neat. I just love your wreath. What a great idea. And it looks so pretty on your beautiful home. It sounds like Mr. SP and you make great partners.
