Dollar Store Ornament Wreath


(20 Votes)


This Dollar Store Ornament Wreath video will teach you how to turn those extra ornaments into a festive decoration.  This is a great and inexpensive way to add some color to your front door.  You could even use this ornament in the spring and summer if you can find colorful glittery ornaments to match the season.  This is a universal craft that everyone is sure to enjoy!

  • Wire coat hanger (I hear dry cleaner hangers work best)
  • Butt-load of ornaments (I used 57)
  • A piece of duct tape
  • Ribbon to hang it from
  • Wire Cutters



  • Note: After I finished stringing the ornaments on the coat hanger, I intertwined the hook part back together. Once I had the wreath fully intact, I used heavy duty wire cutters to snip off the hook. I then found some corresponding thick ribbon to hang it from.

I used my glue gun to fix the tops to the baubles. Good idea, I made some for the family and they were delighted. Thanks

I imagine, instead of trying to cut off the intertwined hook, it would be better to just disguise it with your ribbon; meaning you can also hang it by the hook.

Hi trunkee--Thanks for your comment, and yes...that's a great idea! Thanks for sharing! --FaveCrafts Editor

This was SO easy to make. I went to the store after the holiday season last year and got quite a bit of ornaments at 90% off. The wreath really came out nice. Thanks for posting this!

The tops of the ornaments came off when I made the wreath.

I also remember using white plastic bag's tied around the hanger, and trimed close to the wire, or use any color of plastic you want, also a bow look's nice on top, and a few very small Christmas ornaments can be hung on the wire also..

I thought this was a wonderful Idea and simple enough to make.

When I was a child we did a class project as a team I will never forget! Much like this instead of ball we used bags of hard candy!!! We all took turns it took the whole month of November so it would be ready for December but it looked great on our classroom door and we were so proud!At the end we had a raffle and one of the children got to take it home.lol

Great idea I am going to try I have some old ornaments packed away I have not used in years. The one she made looks beautiful and easy to create. Thanks . Crafter/Vendor Nel

Those ornaments look like they might be styrofoam. But, glass ones would work, just get some serious glue to glue the hanging portion to the ornament before you start. I find fabritac works well for similar projects.

Great idea! These are most likely glass/plastic ornaments, but gluing the hanging portion on is a fantastic tip! Thanks for sharing!

I tried to make this wreath but just as I was afraid might happen, the balls started falling off. Before I knew it I was sitting around with broken glass ornaments all around my feet. Any solutions to this problem?

Try putting a small piece of duct tape at the beginning of the wreath to prevent the ornaments from sliding off.

I do find this an easy-looking project, but I wonder, like another comment, what type of ornaments were used. I also dislike the description a "butt-load" of ornaments". I find this world is way to quick to use disgusting prases and profanity. I have always heard the term "boat load"....

The ornaments used in this project were purchased at Target...but you can find ornaments like this around the holiday time at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Walmart, and several other craft stores. Look for ornaments with a larger loop at the top so the hanger can easily to through.

What an easy and inexpensive project. The hardest part was bending the hanger. I used all gold and silver ornaments and it looks very classy. Love it and will make many more.

Nice! I bed the gold and silver look great together! Thanks for the comment!

Love this but what type of ornaments did you use? All my ornaments have a silver or gold top with a loop to put a hanger on to hang on tree. The ones you have look and sound like they have 2 holes on the top to slip the wire through.

These ornaments also have a gold/silver top...I believe the hanger is placed through the whole where the string or hook would be. Hope that helps!

Great idea simple to do but so beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
