How to make an elegant dollar store Christmas wreath using inexpensive ornaments.
I think we all love the challenge of taking dollar store items and turning them into expensive looking home decor right? Which is why I love this Christmas wreath made with 7 things I bought at The Dollar Tree.
I personally love using wreaths in my home. And my front door needs a very thin wreath because of the glass door that closes in front of it. Which makes this holiday wreath perfect!
The snowflake wreath cost just $7 of materials from The Dollar Tree. Plus, you’ll have one deer ornament leftover for another project.

- 10 White Glitter Snowflake Ornaments
- 1 White Glitter Reindeer Ornament
- 1 Glitter Iced Berry Branch Pick
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Wire Cutters or Shears
- Remove string hangers from the Reindeer Ornament and 9 of the 10 Snowflake Ornaments.
- Arrange Snowflake Ornaments in a circle. At the top of the circle, place the one Snowflake Ornament with the hanger.
- Move the ornaments closer together and begin overlapping each ornament. They should overlap approximately 1/2 inch and 2- 3 snowflake “points” should be overlapped.
- Start with the top Snowflake Ornament and hot glue the overlapping areas to the two snowflakes next to it. Each time you lift up an ornament to glue, the other ornaments will slightly shift. To make sure you keep the circle formation, adjust the ornaments back into place between each gluing. This ensures you’ll glue the right overlapping areas. Once all snowflakes are glued together, let sit for a few minutes to make sure the glue has dried.
- Gently flip over the snowflake wreath making sure to keep it as flat as possible. It is easiest to slide the snowflake wreath off the edge of the table to pick up. This keeps it from bending. If one of the snowflakes separates, simply arrange it back into the overlapped position while upside down and re-glue.
- Now tack down all overlapping areas with a glob of hot glue to make the bond stronger between each ornament. Let dry completely.
- Flip the wreath over soo that right side is up.
- Snip off 3 - 4 sprigs from the Berry Pick and arrange them on the snowflake wreath along with the Reindeer Ornament to decide the best placement. I arranged the berry sprigs so that each one would end just above or to the side of the Reindeer Ornament.
- Hot glue the berry sprigs to the wreath first.
- Glue the Reindeer Ornament to the wreath.
- This wreath is best hung indoors or on a protected porch, rather than out in the elements.
- You can consider using a super glue or other type of glue that sticks to plastic rather than hot glue.
