Make an Ornament Wreath

ornament wreath

If you’re looking for a way to get you and the person with memory loss in the holiday spirit, then this super easy to make wreath is just for you. All it takes is an old wire hanger, a glue gun, and some ornaments (I’d recommend the plastic, shatterproof kind, but that’s just me). However, I can’t say that I invented this idea, so I’ll have you Click this link to visit Eddie Ross’ website for details on how to put it all together (I don’t know if he invented it either, but he does do a good job of explaining it).

Of course, we may need to modify the project just a bit for people with memory loss. Those in the early stages may not need any help at all. Those in the moderate stages should probably have the tops of the ornaments hot glued on for them and the wire shaped, but should be able to string the ornaments on with perhaps only a few examples/cues along the way. Those in the later stages may need to have constant reminders on what to do. They may need to have each ornament handed to them or even may only be able to hand you the ornaments for you to put on the wire. However, it can still be a fun activity and the repetitive nature of the task can be quite soothing for many people with memory loss for whom multiple steps are often confusing and stressful.

  1. Hey there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site
    mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might
    be able to fix this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.

    Thanks!

    • I changed a few setting for the mobile version, so hopefully that will help. You might also try downloading th wordpress app, available here. I believe it’s primarily intended for those who write a wordpress blog, but it also has a reader feature, so you might still find it useful. Thanks for taking the time for asking rather than just giving up!
