Metallic ornament wreath tutorial

I like to have a wreath on my front door all the time, it's a sign of welcome into my home. So, when I saw this gorgeous wreath while thumbing through Pinterest, I had to try my hand at it.  

This wreath can be done in any color you prefer, I chose silver so to keep in with my other decorations.  I have seen this wreath done with thrift store finds and dollars store ornaments.  However, there are no thrift stores near me and the dollars store are not really dollar stores, they are a dollar and up stores... They are more up than a dollar! 

Here are my supplies:
75 metallic ornaments - $19.00 
24 small ornaments -  $5.00
Garland 40 sq. ft. - $2.00
14" styrofoam wreath form - $11.99 at Michaels
Glue gun
Ribbon for hanging

Ready to go, this is how it was done... I wrapped the styrofoam form with the garland, I didn't worry too much if there was white showing through, at the end it will all be covered.  

First, I started hot gluing the ornaments inside of the wreath while alternating them and glued a layer of ornaments to the outside.   Then, started gluing to fill in the wreath with the ornaments making sure to space out the variations of the silver tones of the ornaments.  Added in the small ornaments to fill in the large gaps.

After the foam is completely covered with the ornaments, cut pieces of leftover garland and glue them inside the gaps that couldn't be covered with the ornaments.  

Here it is, so pretty!

I love the way it came out!  

I think it looks so elegant!  Now, if my door was painted a nice color, it would look even better!  Next project:)

Thanks for stopping by!
