I’m sure y’all know this but the Dollar Tree is Killin’ it with their Fall Decor Options this year!! It makes me excited for what they may have this Christmas!
I am by no means a wreath maker, but I’m pretty proud of the $6 wreath I made COMPLETELY out of stuff from the dollar tree.
Here’s what you’ll need.
*(If you cannot find these items at your local dollar tree that makes my heart sad!! Give them time to restock their fall stuff or get it out all together, and if you still can’t find them then improvise and make the project your own!)*
- Buffalo Check Scarf (DT in the section with the socks)
- DT Orange Burlap Ribbon
- Children’s Hula Skirt (Yes you read that right) Dollar Tree, in the party supply section
- DT Twine Jute, or Baker’s Twine (Craft Section)
- Fall Sign. I found this cute “Farm Fresh” Sign right in the fall section as well!
- DT Wire Wreath Frame
- Decorative Trimmings, everything I used came from Dollar Tree.
- Glue Gun, Scissors, and Glue Sticks
If you’re like me you are counting the items and thinking, that’s way more than $6. I didn’t use all of the scarf, burlap ribbon, bakers twine, or trimmings. I’m Saving the rest for future projects!! I don’t usually factor in what I have left over into the cost of my projects!
The first thing I did was take the Hula Skirt out of the package and cut it into sections. 4 pieces in a section seemed to be plenty.
Then I took the hula skirt and started working it around the wire wreath frame, securing it with the bakers twine at each cross piece.
I used the entire hula skirt. Once I had it all secure, I fluffed and trimmed until I was happy with the look of it.
(Side Note: Grab a few hula skirts, because it will work great for MANY fall projects. Not to mention if you are a raffia fan like Erin and Me, then you’ll love the hula skirt because it is very similar to raffia.)
Next, I cut the scarf into strips and wrapped around each cross sections to hide the bakers twine. I tied it in a regular knot in the back.
Easy Peasy!! The next thing I did was take the sign and secure it to the middle by attaching each side with hot glue to the pieces of the scarf, and by securing the top with the bakers twine. I chose, flowers, a grapevine ball, and orange burlap to finish it out. All from the dollar tree!!
Here’s a picture of the burlap ribbon so you’ll know exactly which one I used.
I used a 12 inch strip of the ribbon for the hanger, and TADAAAA. ALL FINISHED!!! It was so simple y’all and I think it turned out super cute!!
