I don’t think I can count how many times I have visited my local dollar store this past month. Most trips were my fault, caused by my poor planning skills, the rest of the trips can be blamed on the tubes and tubes and tubes of Christmas ornaments they sell and I had to buy. My name is Sonia, and I have a problem, I am a Christmas ornament hoarder. I just love all the different options available: different finishes (matte, glitter, shiny), different colors, and different sizes. I had to have them all. And I bought them all.
With all these ornaments I had to find a way to use them since I decided the ones on my tree were DIY’ed. I was loving all the ornament wreaths all over Pinterest and decided to give it a shot.
Here are the ornaments I chose to use. Different finishes in gold, green and red. In total I used 60 ornaments.
The evergreen wreath, I used an 18 inch form. It was on sale for $2.99 at Michaels, SCORE!
I started by turning the wreath over and filling in the center with the ornaments. Then I did the same for the outside circle.
And 30 minutes late, seriously, that’s it, I had this. This was such an easy and quick project. I
I started from the inside and went to the outside. Gluing the ornaments directly onto the wreath then securing some to each other.
I had ribbon to finish it off but I kind of really like the finished look.
There are a few bare spots, ok a bunch, but I didn’t want to over do it. Even though using 60 ornaments is probably overdoing it 🙂
Overall, I am really happy with the outcome and love the sparkle power it gives to my front door! Also, I think I am starting a trend, all my neighbors have a wreath up too 🙂
Since I bought most of my supplies at the dollar store it cost me a whopping $13 to complete this wreath with ornaments to spare! It is seriously one of the easiest and cheapest projects I’ve made. I hope some of you give it a try and share their pics with me.
Can y’all believe Christmas Eve is only a week away! Where did this month go?
