Bird Wreath Ornament DIY

 

 
 
Every year we try to make some homemade ornaments, so this year was no exception.
After seeing a similar bird wreath ornament, ridiculously expensive, I decided to use our supplies and make one, considerably cheaper.
 
Supplies:
  • Memory wire
  • Faux pine garland
  • Small Styrofoam (or other ) birds
  • Ribbon
I couldn't find mini wreaths to buy, so I used memory wire instead. It bends and twists extremely easily and to shape it well I used a cup.
 

Wrapped faux pine garland around it as well as a sateen ribbon. I glued the birdies at the center and applied some white tempera to get a snowy look.

We also made one inspired by Anthropologie, but later about that...
