5 Dollar Christmas Wreath

by Rachel
3 Materials
30 Minutes
If you have a hot glue gun, about 30 minutes, and 5 dollars you can make this super cute and simple holiday wreath. Heading to the dollar store right now!
What you need: Hot glue gun, cheap plastic ornaments, and a metal wreath ring 14¼". I got my supplies from the Dollar tree. I bought 4 of the 16 count assorted packs and on metal wreath ring.

Alternative supplies:

Another option that may end up being a better deal is to get your ornaments from the thrift store! I found boxes filled with really unique and some antique ornaments for 2$. If you have some time to search, why not?!

And lastly if you want to skip the wreath ring, just use an old wire hanger that you already have and make your own ring!
I took off the little hanging clasp off (not sure what the technical term is) , you do not necessarily have to do this, but I wanted to save them and use them to make my own ornaments in future Christmas projects.
This is it! It took me about 30 minutes and I just hot glued the ornaments onto the wreath and onto each other, doing my best to fill it in. I was originally going to put greenery in there to make it full, however I began to like the simplicity of this little wreath.
Loved hanging it up for the first time!

    Just the thing I was looking for!! How do you get started tho? I guess I can't figure out exactly where I put the got glue. I've seen a bunch of other videos and posts that use wire too so thank you for reassuring me it's possible to create this wreath without having to make another trip to Dollar Tree. I pray you respond b4i start gluing things down.
