     This easy holiday wreath will greet your guests with a sparkle.  Oooooh sparkly sparkles oooh.  I love sparkles hehe.  All items I used are from my local Dollar Tree store for a total cost of $9.  It took me about 2 hours to put this together but that was with me talking to a friend and fiddle farting around LOL.  I bet this would take under 45 minutes if you focused exclusively on it.  If you can wield a hot glue gun without burning yourself too bad then this is the craft project for you.
     I've seen quite a lot of these wreaths being made on other sites.  Everyone has their own way of doing this but I found my way works for me best plus I adore any craft that needs a glue gun!  The one thing that stood out to me was how perfect other wreaths were.  My personality is rather random and that is how I like to craft so perfect would not do.  The all over random placement of the Christmas bulbs makes this more eye appealing in my opinion.  It's interesting how the balls look like different sizes but really they are all the exact same.  I chose gold and a silver/gold color because it ends up looking classy plus it matches my door and sparkles in the sunlight.  Any color will work and any size bulb too.  All that matters is if you like it right?  I still need to glue 1 more ball onto the top left side.  Somehow 1 ball was over looked and I just found it.  Have fun crafting!

If you are a blogger and have a beautiful holiday themed craft or recipe to share I invite you to post to my linky at the very bottom of this post. 

{To make 1 wreath you will need}

-a hot glue gun and plenty of extra sticks.  *Make sure this is a hot gun and that the glue is quality, you want it to cool to crystal clear and not cloudy.  When in doubt do a test on a piece of paper first
scissors
-1 wicker wreath 12-13" across
-1 spool wide ribbon with wire in the sides
-6 tubes of small (ping pong ball size) plastic ornament balls (or bulbs) or around 72 total
-a strip of old fabric, ribbon or tinsel long enough to wrap the entire wreath 3 yards long
-1 door hanger and keep the little wires from the packaging

{How to put together}

1. Hot glue fabric or ribbon onto the wreath wrapping around just enough to mostly cover
2. Pull ends off of all ornaments.  If you purchased the Dollar Tree kind they come off easily
3. Put a big dab of glue on each ornament and place them all around your wreath.  Make sure the ends face inward and out of sight.  I liked stacking a few here and there to make the wreath bulkier and more 3D.  Be sure to glue ornaments together whenever possible just to make everything more sturdy.  Leave a space the width of the ribbon sort of open (no stacking) so that you can loop the ribbon over there

4.  Once everything is cool wrap the wide ribbon around your chosen space on the wreath and then secure with a wire from the door hanger package.  Twist the ends into a big triple looped bow and use the other wire from the hanger package to secure it.
5. Hook over your door and enjoy!  Happy Holidays!
