Now How do We Make our Dollar Store Ornament Wreath?
First things first we have to cut our sweater to fit around wreath. *Cutting horizontally along the bottom of the sweater is a great place to start. Now if you DONT have a sweater to spare, check out the gorgeous yarn I included above in the Amazon list for you! You can just use that yarn to wrap the form.
Once you have your sweater cut out you will want to wrap it around the wreath form and glue it into place. Be sure to keep the seam at the back of the wreath and not visible from the front. (By the way, can I say how much I LOVE my wireless Hot Glue Gun?! I really really don’t like wires and this guy is the best!)
Once you have all the excess cut away, you can see here how you can just work a little at a time and glue as you go! (If you have straight pins, feel free to use them if it makes your work easier! …that would have been a great idea!)
After everything is in place and secured, cut candle ring florals in half, removing any extra unnecessary plastic. You can keep as much or as little attached to one another.
Take the greenery and tie them to the wreath with floral wire. You can also use your hot glue gun to attach these pieces. *Something super trendy is loading up the wreath on one side or all at the bottom which allows a large area of the lovely sweater to show.
Once all the greenery is in place then layer in deer, pinecones, and additional floral sprigs. HAVE FUN!
Once all the decorative pieces are in place you can create a hanger. Just wrap floral wire around sweater and try to get it in between any ribbing to hide it. *For hanging a wreath that has decorations on one side, hold the wreath on an extended finger and see where it balances so decorations are centered. Tie on hanger at this point.
Now let hang that baby up!
I just love how all the little dollar store decorations came together to make this festive wreath!
