I know you’ve all seen those ornament wreaths out there. They are fabulous! I have been lusting after one for years, but every time I went to buy one I would think to myself “You know, I think I could make this.” Turns out I was right!
For a total of $22 in supplies I made this lovely wreath:
You read that correctly. This wreath was made with supplies bought primarily from the $.99 Store! Pretty great, right?
So here’s what you’ll need:
1 branch/vine wreath (because they are sturdier than styrafoam…also mine came from Michael’s for $6)
Glue gun and extra glue
12 cylinders of various sized ornaments from the dollar store
Ribbon with which to hang the wreath
Begin with the wreath. I believe mine is 18 inches across.
Wrap the wreath in green felt to provide a surface to glue the ornaments to. I used leftover scraps from my felt Christmas tree project.
Then begin gluing on the largest bulbs first.
Connor, as you know, loves to help with the gluing of anything. He decided to help me glue the bulbs in place.
You’ll want to glue these in a ring in the center of the wreath’s flattest part. This will allow you to add large bulbs as needed on both the outside and the inside.
You can see that I made concentric rings with the large bulbs. Now just fill in the spaces between the large bulbs with the smaller sized ornaments. Connor abandoned me at this point, so I had to finish on my own. For some reason the project went much faster at that point!
Voila! You are done! Simply tie a ribbon around the wreath, tucking it under the bulbs and you have yourself a lovely ornament wreath for the bargain price of $22!
