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
Now, set back and enjoy your new Christmas decoaration. It is a total cost of less than $10 and will take only about 30 minutes to put together from start to finish.
