When we went through a late relative’s attic we found boxes of gorgeous vintage, glass Christmas ornaments. And while they are collectible and people trade them online, they were too personal for us to throw away and yet not practical enough for our tree which is constantly under threat from animals, children, and drunks.
So my daughter made a wreath out of the ornaments for us to display above the fray. It turned out pretty well and is a great memento of our relative. All it took was an old wire coat hanger, some patience with the old hooks and a lot of ornaments.
