Here is what you will need to make this simple wreath:

Step 1: Paint ornaments

You can find these ornaments at Michaels, Amazon or even the dollar store.  Give them a good wipe to remove any dust prior to painting.

Remove the metal tops off of the ornaments as you won’t be needing them.

Use spray paint caps to balance the 5″ ornaments while spraying. For the smaller ones, just lay them on cardboard. Start with the tops first, so have the tops pointing up. Spray the paint in very, very fine layers and make sure they don’t run. If there are runs, wipe them up quickly.

Once dry (about 1 hour), flip over and paint the bottoms. The bottoms are what you are going to see the most, so make sure you get many fine layers on so that they are fully reflective.

Step 2: Prepare grapevine wreath

As you will see in the finished product, I only had the ornaments and feathers on the lower half of the wreath. In order for the ornaments to adhere properly, it is necessary to trim off any stray vines that are poking out forward in that area.

Once you have a smooth surface, spray paint the wreath with the Metallic Silver spray paint. This paint is amazing and so pretty. It is quite sparkly which is wonderful because it adds shimmer to the wreath.

Step 3: Attach ostrich feather trim

Lay out two layers of the trim. One will face up and the other will face down. Place them just off center. The ornaments will cover up the white satin trim. The idea is to have the feathers poking out here and there from behind the ornaments and provide movement to wreath.

Glue the trim down in several areas, especially on the larger pieces of grapevine.

Place three large feathers on the left hand side in a staggered fashion and glue down the last quarter of the feather by placing a line of glue down the stem of the feather. Don’t glue the entire feather down as it should be able to move and flutter. Add one or two feathers to the right side. I like asymmetrical designs but if you are more of a symmetrical designer, place 3 feathers on the right side too.

Step 4: Attach large ornaments

Place a thick amount of hot glue on the back of the stem of the ornament and press firmly onto the wreath. Start in the middle and work outwards towards the large white feathers.

Stagger the large ornaments and make sure not to create a pattern like one up, one down, one up one down. Point them in different directions so that it looks more scattered.

Next add in the small ones as a second layer and to fill in the spaces between the large ornaments.

Lastly trim small pieces of the full feathers or if you have some trim left and glue it in between the ornaments so that feathers also poke out between and create more interest.

I should also explain that the ornaments look a little misty in the photos above and the reason is that we are having extremely cold temperatures and a bit of snow blew in and froze to the ornaments. They will look shiny like the picture below when the snow and frostiness melt.

Doesn’t it look like a designer wreath?

Step 5: Styling

Now all that is needed is some styling with simple home decor. I added two lit birch trees, candles, a black and white buffalo check rug and a simple Merry Christmas mat. My entrance now has a modern feel and elegant take on the typical Christmas wreath.

Because it doesn’t say Christmas, it will have more longevity and be more appropriate for New Year’s eve decor and then as winter front door decor.

This wreath would also look good in the dining room hanging on a mirror as the reflections would be amazing.

Wanting a more traditional look?

If you would prefer a more traditional look you could use faux greenery, evergreen branches and fresh eucalyptus instead of the ostrich feathers.  As well you could spray the ornaments with gold spray paint to bring it more into a traditional look and color scheme.

Either way, it is a perfect wreath filled with holiday cheer for the entire festive season.
