Inexpensive Holiday Wreath

In years past, Brent has always been the one singing Christmas carols in July.  The thought of crowds and shopping was enough to send my anxiety in a tailspin!  So usually around October 31st, I would go out into the back yard and bury my head in the sandbox.  Well not this year!  I am so getting my craft on and now I can hardly wait for Christmas to come!  I already have visions of sugar plums dancing in my head!

So in preparation for this holiday season, I was perusing the ninety or so blogs that I like to follow and I came across this little number.

It was ridiculously easy to make!

I started at Dollar Tree and picked up these.  I got 4 sleeves of each color and ended up having about 15 ornaments left over.  Each sleeve was $1 and the roll of ribbon was $1.

Grabbed one of these from my mom

Carter helped me cut the strings off

Then I hot glued the tops so they wouldn't come off

Next I strung them on the hanger and Viola!!

Add a pretty ribbon and it's ready to hang!
