What you will need:

*Ornaments

*Wreath

*Screw in hooks

*Foam craft board

*Hot glue gun

Step 1

Take your foam core board and pierce holes in any circular, square or random pattern of your choice. You will need to trim the board to fit in the middle of the wreath.  Secure and glue the board in place in the center of the wreath after punching the holes. Foam Board holes

Step 2

This step is made a little easier by hanging the wreath temporarily to ensure your string lengths look appropriate. Cut your string, twine or chain to your varying desired lengths. Bend a few ornament hooks into a U-Shape and string through one link in the chain or through a loop made in your string.Chain SegmentsStraight clipBent clip

Now take your strung wire U-Shape and push it through one of your holes in the board. Once in place bend the wire to the left and right to secure it in place. Do this for all of your lengths of chain and make sure your varying heights will work for your ornament placement in later steps.wire fasteningpin through hole

Step 4

Choose a spot in your home to hang your chandelier and place 4 screw in hooks evenly spaced just smaller than the size of your wreath. Once you have the hooks in place, use 4 branches of the wreath as tie wraps to hook up and over the hooks to hang your wreath, board and chain combo.

Step 5

If you used string or twine, tie your ornaments onto your strings. If you used chain like I did, simply place the ornaments on hooks and place in the lowest link in each of your chains. You can decorate your wreath now with lights, ribbons or additional ornaments.Steps
