By the time I got to the store a lot of the Christmas decorations where gone but I did find some. I also cheated just a little bit as I bought some of the ornaments from Walmart as they had a package with a green ornament that I wanted. I liked them as it brought a little bit of different colour then the gold and red. For my base I used an evergreen wreath that I twisted the evergreens to make them tight around the wire. This I bought from the Dollar Tree too.
Dollar Tree Christmas Wreath
I thought that I took a picture of the materials that I used but I either deleted them or put them in a file that I can't find.
16 evergreen wreath
Assorted sizes and colour ornaments
1 sprig holly berries
ribbon to make bow - approx 1 foot in length
hot glue gun
I twisted the evergreens around the wire wreath so that it was solid. Don't worry if some are showing as you can see some of the every green in my wreath.
Glue large ornaments to wreath with glue gun covering 3/4 of wreath. (I realized that I hadn't bought enough balls and decided to leave room for a bow.)
Continue to glue ornaments in random arrangement over the wreath. Try not to leave to many holes.
Pull holly berries off sprig and glue to bottom of the wreath. I tried to glue them all about the same distance apart.
Tie a 4 loop bow and glue to wreath where there are no ornaments.
This wreath cost me about $10.00 to make. You can still make one before Christmas either for yourself or give as a gift.
