Day 15 of the 20 Days of Christmas: Ornament Wreath

For Day 15, I have an ornament wreath to share with you.  These are pretty simple and inexpensive to make, and they only take about 30 minutes tops to put together.
To make this wreath, you will need: a styrofoam wreath, 20 large ornaments, 21 small ornaments, and ribbon.  (I bought all of the ornaments used on this wreath at the dollar store) You will also need scissors for the ribbon and hot glue to attach everything.

To begin with, I layed out the ornaments to get an idea of how many it would take and how they would be attached.
Now, I started added the ornaments with hot glue.  I began on the inside and worked my way out.

Once the wreath is completely covered, you will need to turn it over and add ribbon to hang the wreath with.  I used a green ribbon that I got from Walmart's Christmas area for $1 and hot glued it to the back of the wreath.

Now, you have your finished wreath, ready to hang on your door.

I like this so much better than the ornament wreath that is strung on a hanger that I've been seeing. The ornaments pointing every whichway is really cute. TFS!
