I made up this little door wreath using leftover / broken ornaments and a very cheap bargin folder I had knocking around.

Step 1:
Buy a cheap but thick cardboard folder from any value range- supermarkets are great for these.

Step 2:
Use a Compass to draw a circle as large as you can fit. Then draw an internal circle inside about 3 inches smaller.

Step 3. Cut both circles out carefully until you are left with a ring of card.

Step 4: Dig out your old tree decorations, look for the ones with the broken tops that can no longer be hung easily. Heat up your glue gun and have fun! Wink If you have a fun soft toy or large favourite ornament add it to the middle. I tied mine on using string.

Warning ! - regular glues such as UHU and PVA may not hold ornaments in place fully.

Oh my gosh! This little guy is ridiculously cute! What a clever idea on how to use broken ornaments instead of just dumping them in the trash! You'd never believe this was so cheap to make.

That's really cute and a great use of what would otherwise be trash.
