Pottery Barn Lookalike Wreath

I have been admiring this wreath on the Pottery Barn Website for a while now,

I really like this one as well in all green
but at $79 I knew I could do better!  I first gathered up my supplies which are

-1 $5 faux evergreen wreath from Michaels or any craft store or I've even seen some at Dollar Tree
-Assorted Christmas ornament balls in 2 or three different sizes, I spent about $15 on different Christmas balls from Target and the Dollar Tree
- Glue Gun and hot glue sticks

I first started trying to wire the ornaments to the wreath base but found that it was taking too long and was just too tedious so I just decided to break out the trusty glue gun and randomly glue them in trying to alternate colors and sizes a bit.  This is what I ended up with

Sorry for the bad photo quality, I had to end up using my husbands camera phone because the metal part on the cord to my digital camera got bent (which I'm furious about).  I think it turned out rather well and only cost me approximately $20 vs. $79!


  1. I love the wreaths!! Soooo I will do a post all about you and send some bloggy love your way!!!!MWUAAAHHHH!!!

  2. I love your wreath, I have been so into them this year for some reason. I haven't seen one with the greenery like that yet. Thanks for coming by my blog. I think it took me 2 trip to the Dollar Store and 1 to Hobby Lobby to get all the ornaments I needed to make my wreath. I just kept running out and running out and running out! And your photo quality is amazing considering it was with a phone! I can't get mine to look that good even with a real camera!

  3. Hi Kelly, so nice to meet you, Misty sent me over to say "Hi". Love the wreath, you did a great job. Inspires me to get out my glue gun and get to work! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  4. Hi Kelly, happy to meet you! I heard about you from Misty, and wanted to come over and say "welcome"!
    I think your wreath looks just fantastic, better than the pricey one.
    Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
