DIY Ornament Garland

 This is a super easy way to make a big visual impact in your decor. This ornament garland is perfect for any table, mantle, or like mine on top of my entry way shelf. It is such a great pop of color.

Start with a collection of shatterproof ornaments in any color.

Use any grosgrain ribbon that will coordinate with your ornaments. I used white and it just disappeared beneath all the ornaments as I hoped. 

Cut ribbon at an angle to make a point. Feed the ribbon through loop at top of ornament. Some brands of ornaments may require you to hot glue the ornament top to ornament. Without this they may fall off garland. Test a few to see if you need to do this. Mine did not. 

Alternate colors as you go to create dimension. You can rotate and turn them to get the placement you want during or after stringing. You can use a variety of sizes for a fuller garland. The smaller ones will fill in any gaps although they are not necessary. I used all one size.

Continue to string ornaments until you reach your desired length constantly moving them down as needed. Knot ribbon at both ends and trim. Your ornament garland is complete. Display it in your home for all to see.

I used approximately 75+ ornaments to create a 4ft long garland.
Enjoy! As always feel free to post your crafty creations on my facebook wall. www.facebook.com/5mcreations.
