To start this series off I wanted to share one of my very own favorite Christmas crafty tutorials from the past!

Say hello to the Pottery Barn Knock Off Ornament Wreath!!!

Isn’t she GORGEOUS!!

 I saw this wreath on the Pottery Barn website.

But $79 is WAY outta my price range for a wreath!  So, I did like any good crafting blogger and headed straight to Dollar Tree!!  I got 3 packs of ornaments but didn’t find a wreath large enough.  I did fine one at Walmart. 20 inches for only $2.48!!  Not to bad huh?

Now, if you look closely a few of the ornaments on the PB wreath have swirly glittery circles.  I dug out my glitter glue and made a few for my wreath.

Then I started to attach the ornaments with twist ties.

I kept adding ornaments here and there until I was happy with the look.  You could add more or less to change the look.

This is a very easy craft and super inexpensive.  I spent $3 on 3 packs of ornaments from the dollar store.  I had the glitter glue but if you had to purchase that it’s only a $1 from the dollar store also.  The wreath as I said was $2.48.  So, $6.50 to make a $79 wreath is a HUGE WIN, don’t ya think?

Did you make your own Christmas wreath last season?  We would LOVE to see it!

    1. Thanks, Tauni!! I technically wasn’t too on top of it. After seeing all the Christmas in July bloggy goodness I jumped the bandwagon and sent out an email asking for posts in the 2nd week!! LOL 😉
