I am really excited to share this project with you, as this was something my husband and I did together. We made a outdoor wreath for our home. He came up with the idea and we looked on etsy but the cost was crazy expensive ranging from $175-350; so we said screw that and decided to make one ourselves. I think it turned out amazing and the total cost was only $50 after using a 10% coupon at the store AT HOME.
First, we looked on pinterest to get an idea of what we wanted to do. We could not find any step by steps, so we decided to just wing it. Here is what we used and did.
What did we need:
- First, we bought the wreath. We purchased it from AT HOME for $29.99.
- Then, purchased large set of shatter proof Oranments (you choice of color) for $19.99.
- We purchased a large ribbon and cut ot to match the size of the wreath.
- Pulled out our glue gun and glue sticks. I found this glue gun and sticks for only $10.43 on Amazon. We used about 5 small ones for everything.
- Place Wreath on the floor.
- Group the ornaments together first and place where you will glue them on the wreath. (no glue yet)
- Once you have established the location of the ornaments, place the ribbon in the place you will want it on the wreath. (no glue yet)
- Cut the ribbon and tie on the wreath. We added additonal hot glue to secure the ribbon on the wreath. (glue for the ribbon)
- Glue the ornaments together in 3s, but do not glue to the wreath yet. Just bulk together and glue. Let the glue dry. We pushed them together for a few seconds, to make sure the glue did stick. (glue the ornaments together)
- Once you established all the ornaments location, now begin glueing the ornaments on the wreath. (glue ornament bulks to the wreath)
- Let it sit for about 20 minutes and then test each ornament to make sure secure, as additional hot glue might be needed.
- Then go outside and hang your wreath. We had to do a little more hot glue when we got outside because one of the ornaments started to get loose, but that was no big deal. We did it while hanging and it was perfectly fine.
- Now, its done and we are all happy.

The wreath is now hung outside on our wall and we could not be happier with the result.
