Dollar Store Ornament Wreath

FTC Disclosure

I love decorating for Christmas! I have been known to have an upstairs and downstairs tree. I have a big holiday train that goes around the main tree. There are knickknacks, tchotchkes, and other decorations galore. As my love of decorating for the holidays grows though I have to be more conscientious of not going overboard with spending on decorating. To do this I decided that this year I was going to make some new decorations and that they were going to be affordable too. The first thing I decided I needed was a new wreath for my door. My old one met an untimely demise last year at the hands of my two youngest boys.

I decided to head to the dollar store and see what I could find. Upon entering the store I immediately spotted tubes of ornaments and that made me remember that I had some at home already from Target’s Dollar Spot from last year. I grabbed a few extra tubes of ornaments and a nice, big, sparkly bow that I found and I had the makings of one pretty wreath.

Ornament Wreath Supplies

Supplies for the wreath.

Ornament Wreath

1 wire hanger
70-90 ornaments depending on size
1 large bow
glue gun
hot glue sticks
needle nose or regular pliers

Take the tops off of each ornament and add a bit of hot glue on the sides of the top of the ornament and then place top back on. These ornaments are cheap and they will pop off from the tops if you do not do this step.
While the ornaments are drying, form the hanger into a circle and unwind the top of the wire hanger to open it up. Start adding ornaments on in any fashion you want. When you reach the end use the pliers to twist the hanger closed again. Add the bow to the top and hang up your wreath.

    It looks so nice. I recently saw a segment on TV where they did something similar on Styrofoam. I really like the idea of the hanger much better.

    How easy! I tried to make a similar wreath once by hot-glueing a bunch of ornaments to a wreath form. It… did not go well. 🙂
