~vintage ornament wreaths~

I have never made one of these gorgeous wreaths,
I think I have always been a little intimidated.
However, I have oodles of these gorgeous vintage ornaments,
so I may have to try one this year! Eddie Ross shows a quick and easy method here.
This one from Hazel Ruthe's.
Here is the one from Eddies blog.
Canadian living shares this fabulous blue and brown wreath!
Allen designs shows this one with all kinds of beautiful colors!
I love incorporating a little pink into the season!

Have a great Monday!

I totally like where you're heading with this Melanie! You don't find many with vintage ornaments! Go for it!! I wana see. :)

Wouldn't a wreath with varying shades of white and cracked old finishes be amazing?!?

I only have two boxes of vintage ornaments from my childhood, and am afraid to make a wreath out of them. They are over 50 yrs old...

I want to enjoy them and may try something that dosen't envolve glue. Any ideas? Some are as large as a grapefuit.

I've admired these wreaths for years - I'm just scared to try! Maybe I'll buy some cheap ornaments on clearance this year and give it a try...you should to!

I made one of these the other night! I put mine on a live wreath. It was such an easy project that looks a lot more expensive than it was.

The wreaths are beautiful. I especially love the blue and chocolate one! I have vintage ornaments that my mil gave me that we hang on an all white tree each year in our library. It really makes a statement since we only use vintage on that tree.

Antique and Vintage ornaments are my absolute favorite...I buy them all year round. I think a wreath would be awesome to make and a great way to show them off.

What a great way to use these ornaments. I too have boxes of them I might have to try a small one to begin with and see how it turns out.
Great post

Hi, Melanie --
I love the look of the vintage ornament wreaths (and Magpie Ethel makes them here in Portland) but I am always afraid I'll regret using the ornaments in something "permanent" ... just like I hesitate to cut up old French letters and some music ... just a wimp, I guess.
Took a minute to get caught up on past posts and laughed to myself. Think you said Saturday night you were at play in Seattle? Seems we were across the street ... in town to cheer on someone for the marathon on Sunday.
Small world - huh?
Have a super week and if you make a wreath, show us a pic!
Hugs -
Betty :)
