Sadly, I think it needs 100 more tiny ornaments to fill the gaps, but whose looking that closely...except for you!! :)
I've been drooling over all the pretty Eddie Ross wreaths all you crafty ladies have made and came across Good Housekeeping's tutorial on wreaths. This is Good Housekeeping's wreath below. So pretty! They used old balls and glued them onto a felt wrapped, straw wreath. Filled with large balls and tiny balls in the gaps.

My total cost was 22.00 from the lovely Dollar Tree. I couldn't find a straw wreath large enough at the craft stores. I was looking for a 24". I found in my scary garage an old grapevine wreath. I would have prefered the straw...but this was free. I then hot glued strips of white felt all over it and bound it with string.
Wrap tightly because of all the sticks, and then bind with string. Wrapping with felt made it sooooo much easier to glue the ornaments onto. I couldn't work with the coat hanger, this is much, much, easier. It just takes a TON of balls!
I glued for many hours and realized that my 150 ornaments wouldn't do and made another trip to the dollar store. The ornaments came in packages of 12-15 for 1$ each!!! 22.00 dollars in all. How cool is that?! They are cheap and plastic, but again, whose looking that closely?
All the empty packages!
Like Good HouseKeeping...I added a few starburst ornaments for interest!
I like it because it fits the size of my door! I know it's a tad bit excessive, but it was fun and thanks to the dollar tree.....extremely cheap for 220 ornaments! :)
Now....if the cold temps don't make the hot glue stop working and I have plastic balls bouncing off my front porch!
* sad update* you may want to keep wreath inside if you live in cold areas, hot glue doesn't hold up under low temperatures! :(
