As to not leave you hanging for too long (no pun intended), here’s the full tutorial for yesterday’s DIY color block hanging ornament garland from my crafting party with Martha Stewart Living.

Assembling the garland is as simple as stringing the ornament hooks through wired ribbon, or in my case, felted wool rope. I offered guests two options so that they could choose either a more sophisticated look with silver wired ribbon or a more playful look with the felted wool rope. Fair warning though, this bad boy takes a ton of bulbs to make it full, so stock up before hand!

Materials:

  • Ornaments (I used the holiday frost collection from Martha Stewart, and paints)
  • Ornament hooks
  • Wired ribbong or felted wool rope
  • Scissors

The quickest and easiest way (always good to know, right?) is to loop a set of three bulbs together on an ornament hook, and then twist the hook around your rope or ribbon. I created this one to have six bulbs for each color, but you can do as many or as little ad you’d like.

Once you’ve grouped one color on the garland, continue with groups of the following until you’ve got it as long as you’d like, and then clip the ribbon or rope and knot it at the ends of the bulbs.

Now all you have to do is hang or drape it in place! Don’t forget to follow along for all of the Twelve Early Days of Christmas projects and recipes, #12earlydaysofchristmas!

    Never have I seen such a unique way to change it up, I am lovin this garland… Envy of the talent

      totally! I would use the thick wire branch style wreath as the base and then just wrap bulbs around that so it holds the weight!

    I love this! Can’t wait to make it…where did you find the felted wool rope?

    • Ashley said:

      Hi Jess! I’m glad you love it! The felted wool rope is actually from Hobby Lobby in the Christmas section. One roll is about $5 :)

    This is really delightful! I am curious about where you bought your felt wool rope, though.

    Hi Ashley! What is the easiest way to paint the bulbs?? I’m having trouble getting the bulbs painted with out finger prints! Thanks, Emily

    • Michelle said:

      Just my two cents here, but usually with clear glass bulbs you can pop off the metal hanger part and pour a bit of paint inside, swirl it around until it coats the inside and then pour the extra out? That might help with the finger print issue.

    About how many ornaments did you use?

    Where did the blue, red & yellow ornaments come from? I google Martha Stewart Holiday Frost and found nothing! Did you make them yourself with the paint you mentioned?

    Did you paint these ornaments? What color MS paints did you use? Love this!

    My brother suggested I might like this web site. He used
    to be totally right. This submit truly made my day.
    You cann’t consider simply how much time I had spent for this info!

    Thank you!
