If you are feeling crafty this fall, then you have got to give this DIY dollar tree wreath and try. I made this all from dollar store supplies and it only took me about 15 minutes to put together. So not only is this a budget-friendly DIY, but it is also super easy and quick to make.
I don’t know about you but this year I have been slacking on my holiday decorating. I see everyone online already decorating for Christmas and I’m still over here behind on my Thanksgiving game! haha! Oops.
Although I’m not big on decorating for every holiday, I do usually add some decor in my home for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and mainly Christmas. But this year, we are a week away from Thanksgiving I have nothing decor-wise going on in my home. Not even a wreath on the door!
So although we are only a week away from Thanksgiving day, I decided id at least try and make a DIY dollar tree wreath. I took a trip to the dollar store and got a bunch of supplies and hoped for the best. Well, it turned out so cute that I decided it was blog-worthy. Haha! So here I am, sharing with you how I made this DIY dollar tree wreath for under $10.00 with supplies all from the Dollar Tree!
And let me tell you if I could make this, you sure as heck can too! It was seriously so easy, and fun to put together, and that’s coming from someone who is NOT naturally crafty! Anyway, here are the step-by-step instructions on how I put this DIY dollar store fall wreath together and a list of supplies I used.
DIY Dollar Tree Wreath
Table of Contents
Step 1: Gather Supplies
- Glue gun and glue
- Masking tape or duct tape
- 3 bamboo skewers (the dollar tree)
- Ribbon (the dollar tree)
- Wreath hanger (the dollar tree)
- Pool noodle (the dollar tree)
- Dollar Tree flowers (choose your preferred colors) I used three different colors and also got a variety of bushes that contained acorns, greenery, cotton pods, stuff like that.
Step 2: Create a Circle With The Noodle
Create a circle with the noodle. I secured the noodle into a circle by using bamboo skewers and masking tape.
You should end up with a circle like this. (sorry for the bad quality image)
Step 3: Wrap Ribbon Around Pool Noodle
Once the pool noodle is securely taped, start wrapping the ribbon around the pool noodle. Keep wrapping around the noodle until the ribbon covers the entire noodle. Overlap the ribbon about halfway, so that the blue from the noodle doesn’t show through.
Step 4: Glue Flowers To The Noodle
Once the noodle is completely covered, you’ll want to start adding the flowers.
Glue one flower at a time. Before adding the hot glue, cut the stem off completely, so it leaves you with just the flower and a somewhat flat surface to add the glue.
Once you have applied the glue to the bottom of the flower, press and hold the flower in place (wherever you want them) for about 10 seconds. The flowers should stay in place.
TIP: Add a variety of flowers, but also pine cones, cotton pods, and greenery for a better fall look.
Continue hot gluing the flowers until you have reached your desired look. Add as many or as few flowers as you want. For mine, I only added flowers to one side/corner and I think it turned out so pretty!
AND here is the end product! So pretty, right? And not only was it super easy to make, but it also cost me less than $10.00 to make it! Win, win!
NOTE: I used a clear plastic wreath hanger I got from the dollar tree to hang the wreath, but you can also use ribbon.
And there you have it! What do you think? Would you give this a try? If you do, make sure to let me know how it turns out!
