DIY Ornament Swag

I wanted to design holiday decor for a client that would really stand out in a dark room.  It needed to incorporate baseball and the color blue.  I immediately gravitated toward ornaments.  They will reflect light during events and make a statement in the space.  I decided to create ornament swags.  Of course, it started out as an experiment, demonstrated in the photos below.  I’m excited how they turned out!
Supplies:
ornaments – I used 18 or so, but you’ll use more or less depending on how large you want your swag to be
ribbon
wire {think I used 24 gage, but it wasn’t marked}
scissors
This project is definitely easier to do on a wall so the ornaments can dangle down.  I used a 3M hook so I could use my open workspace and it can easily be removed.
Purchase a metal circle to use as your hook or create your own as demonstrated above.  Hang it from your hook.

Twist/wrap end of your wire around your ornament as shown above.  Cut to desired length and do the same to attach it to your hanging ring.
I started with 1 large ornament, used mostly standard size and filled in with a couple of petite ornaments.  Start building making each wire just a little shorter, creating your desired formation.
Every now and then, I’d tie the wires to ornaments already placed to retain their shape.  Continue building to the top!
Add a ribbon and hang in the desired space!  Hands on time is just 30 minutes.
Here’s how one of them looked in the visitor’s locker room of Kauffman Stadium {pardon the iPhone photo}:
