I have been making these  all glass Vintage Orament Wreaths since 2004. It's like doing a jigsaw puzzle. Somedays I can't make one single ornament fit then the next day everything magically falls into place. Obviously it's a mind thing! I've made about 50 of these. The Antique Silver wreath was a custom wreath using family heirloom ornaments. Heirloom in the sense that they were passed down  from family members ,not that they had much monetary value on their own.

Could you please give us a few details of how you make them? What do you use for your base? What glue do you use?

Brainegal writes: Thanks for the encouraging compliments... they are always appreciated. I find the older ornaments and glass beads at estate sales and on eBay. The base ornaments are usually new ones that in recent years I purchase by the cart load after the holidays. They are the plain ones that languish on the shelves until inventory then sent to the trash compactor. The older ornaments are always front and center and set the tone.

piecesofthepast writes: I've always loved these, but my mind doesn't process puzzles very well and so I don't know how I would do. Where have you find all of your ornaments to make so many?? My favorite is the last one with the bright pinks, but anyone who knows me on here knows I love bright colors!! Great work! Posted: 4:49 pm on June 23rd
