Oh, Pinterest. All it took was five minutes of browsing the “DIY Christmas” search results for me to become obsessed with the idea of making a wreath. I’ve never once owned a wreath, considered buying a wreath, or even contemplated what the point of having a wreath is, but Pinterest has shown me I need ALL THE WREATHS! One for every season!

All you need are ornaments, a wire coat hanger you’re willing to sacrifice, and a hot glue gun. There’s basically two steps to this process: 1) glue ornaments to their tops (so they don’t pop off) and 2) string the ornaments on the coat hanger.
