Grab a plastic picture frame and some mini ornaments from the Dollar Tree and make this cute farmhouse glam Dollar Store Ornament Wreath.
a cute silver and gold Dollar Tree Christmas ornament wreath
It may be early, but my local Dollar Tree already has Christmas items out in stores. I was so excited to see these mini metallic ornaments, that I decided to whip up a little ornament wreath in a trendy square shape.
Dollar Store Ornament Wreath
Here’s a transcript of the video above:
Start by gathering your supplies. You’ll need a square picture frame, some burlap ribbon, four boxes of miniature metallic ornaments, and some metallic paint. I also used a bit of twine and some faux boxwood greenery springs that you can find at your Walmart or your favorite craft store.
Start by disassembling your frame. I chose a gold one in case it pokes through. You can take out the glass and backing from the frame and discard. You just need the outer piece.
Attaching the ornaments to the picture frame
Open up all of the ornaments and discard their little hanging ties. I originally tried to use the little ribbon pieces that came with the ornaments to attach them to the frame, but they kept breaking. It was just too much hassle.
Enter: Plan B. I used some simple brown twine. Tie a simple double knot around the frame. Then begin to string the ornaments onto the twine. String one ornament, then wrap the twine around the frame. String another ornament, and then wrap the twine around the frame again. And so on and so forth. Keep stringing ornaments and wrapping twine until you have made it all the way around the frame. Leave a gap along one side of the frame, so you have room to add a bow.
Adding boxwood between the ornaments
There will be some gaps between the ornaments, and that’s totally fine. This is where the faux boxwood comes in. I got my little faux sprig at the craft store, but I’ve also seen them at Walmart. Cut off the individual branches of the boxwood, and then tuck them into the twine that holds the ornaments. Just space them evenly around the frame. The boxwood will also help keep the ornaments more firmly in place.
Add a burlap ribbon bow
Finally, finish off the wreath with some burlap ribbon from the Dollar Tree. I just made a simple figure-8 with the ribbon and the tied it in the center. Attach the bow with some twine. Tuck two boxwood sprigs into the center of the bow. I also added a bit of metallic paint over the white dots on the burlap ribbon, but in all honesty I would probably skip this step if I made this craft again.
My finished wreath
So, there you have it. For less than $10 in supplies, I was able to whip up a cute little square frame that will work through the Christmas season. And since I used such neutral colors with silver and gold, I think I’ll keep this little guy up for most of the winter as well.
