DIY Fall Dollar Tree Wreaths

Dear Diary,

One of my favorite ways to decorate for the seasons is using wreaths…but they can be SO expensive.

I was on the hunt for a pretty wreath for my front door, and the cheapest I could find was $19.99. I thought that was an okay price, but I knew I could do better.

I finally decided to create my own! This is awesome because not only will it be more affordable, but it’s totally customizable to my wants and needs!

The best part about this DIY is that ALL of the supplies were bought at the Dollar Tree, so I really didn’t break the bank!

I decided that I wanted to create a fall wreath for my front door and a Halloween wreath for my back door! I hope you all enjoy!

Metal Autumn Wreath Hangers, 14 in.

Directions:

This was super easy to make!!!

  • First, I wrapped the maple leaves around the entire wreath.
  • Next, I took apart the grass stems and started to fill them in around the wreath, sticking them into any empty spots.
  • I then attached the pumpkin clips in a few places around the wreath.
  • Finally, I made a pretty bow to hang the wreath from. I attached it to the top of the wreath form and made a loop to hang it up!
  • I hung the wreath on my adorable hanger that is also from the Dollar Tree!

Crafter's Square Sparkle Tulle Mesh Ribbon, 3-yd. Rolls

Crafter's Square Halloween Bat Clips, 4-ct. Packs

Directions:

If you thought the fall wreath was easy, this is even easier! It only took me 5 minutes!

  • I took each roll of mesh, working a color at a time.
  • I weaved the mesh in and out of the wreath form.
  • After applying each roll, I would pull up pieces to make it appear full.
  • When I went in with another color, I would try my best to weave in other areas so that all of he colors were seen equally.
  • Finally, I attacked my adorable purple bats and hung it on my door hanger (also from DT)!
