Often displayed in magazines and on TV, wreaths made from just ornaments can run $40+ at the store. Here is how to make one for under $15 using ornaments found at dollar stores.
Bend the hanger until the opening is circular. Once this is done, untwist the hanger, so it is open.
String the ornaments on. I used groups of 3 large, followed by 1 medium. The medium & small ornaments help to fill in the gaps left by the large ornaments.
As you add ornaments, twist them around to fit together somewhat tightly, but so that the wire hanger is as hidden as possible.
Once the hanger is full, use pliers to twist the hanger back together. Lay the wreath flat, and play around with the arrangement until the ornaments are where you want them to be.
Lift the wreath and shake it just a bit. Any ornaments that fall out of place, you will want to glue back into place, so they won't shift. I do not recommend gluing each ornament to the others.
Form a bow from the ribbon, and arrange the tails to twist in and out of the ornaments, wrapping it around the hanger to move it around. Secure with a pipe cleaner, and spots of glue.
Hang your new wreath, and be the envy of all the neighborhood! You will have a wreath made for under $15, and have friends and neighbors asking just where you got it!
