I have seen ornament wreaths similar to this in the store for $25 - $30, but you can make your own very easily and it is inexpensive.  Total cost to make this wreath is less than $10.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

To make this, you will need:

1 Foam Wreath (found at Dollar Store)
20 regular sized, shatter proof ornaments (found at Dollar Store)
21 small, shatter proof ornaments (found at Dollar Store)
Ribbon (Purchased at Walmart for $2)
Hot Glue and Glue Sticks (If you don't have these on hand, you can also purchase a small one with sticks at the Dollar Store)
Scissors to cut the ribbon

Step 2: Putting the ornaments on

Before I glued anything down, I layed the ornaments out around the wreath to get an idea of how many I was going to use and what kind of color pattern I would have.  Then, I simply began by attaching a layer around the inner circle and then worked my way out from there.  I hot glued large ornaments on first and then filled in areas with the smaller ornaments.

Make sure to wait a few seconds in between each ornament to let your glue harden, so they will be attached securely.

Step 3: Getting Ready to Hang Your Wreath

Once you have filled the wreath with ornaments to your liking, you will need to attach ribbon so you can hang your wreath up.  Turn the wreath over and hot glue ribbon directly onto the wreath in a loop.  Once this has completely dried and cooled, it will be sturdy enough for you to hang your wreath.  (You can add some small pins if you want to add extra security, but the ribbon will hold fine with the hot glue).

Step 4: The Finished Product

The only problem is that there are a lot of holes that need to be filled.
