Today, we are talking filler ornaments. I am relatively new to the idea of filler ornaments. Up until a few years ago, any tree I decorated had lights, ornaments, and garland. That’s it. As I have had the chance to decorate more themed trees, I have come to love a good filler. These are smaller, usually textural ornaments that fill in the bare spots between larger feature ornaments. I am calling these squiggle wire ornaments, but they are really just coil-y springs that break up the monotony of all the other spherical ornaments on this tree. As a bonus, they are super easy to make!
I am thrilled to be one of the hosts for this month’s round of Craft Lightning! Thirty-nine bloggers will be sharing lightning fast holiday projects, while Angie, Carolina and I each add five of our own new tutorials. Check out all the projects from Day 1!
These wire ornaments are super easy to make, just watch this short video to see how to do it. I usually share two new videos on my YouTube channel each week, but this week is special. I will be sharing a brand new video tutorial every weekday this week! If you aren’t subscribed to my channel, please hop over and click subscribe!
I just screwed the springs onto branches all over the tree wherever I felt like there was a blank space that needed filling. Easy and impactful!
