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!
