Dollar tree is, at times, a fun place to shop and get some great deals. However, for all the fun there is also the downside of having to constantly check what the store had in stock just in case you missed a great find. That is where this DIY fall wreath comes in. All you need is a dollar tree fall wreath, some fall decorating items and some craft foam.

Autumn is a great time to decorate your home, both for seasonal cheer and to help you save some money. Here are some of our favorite ways to decorate your home for fall and to save money at the same time.

One of my favorite things about making my own decorations is the ability to customize them. Sometimes all I need is a simple fall wreath. But, sometimes I want to be a bit more creative. So, I’ve been trying to make my own fall decor from Dollar Tree for a while now.

Back-to-school shopping is in full swing at our home, and the county fair is just around the corner, indicating that summer is drawing to a close. It’s difficult not to think about autumn and all the wonderful décor things you can do for the season when the nights grow colder and those brilliant Friday night lights switch on.

The following items are required:

How To Make A Fall Wreath

With a pumpkin spice coffee in hand, I set about making a wreath that could be used from August until Christmas decorations are needed. Enjoy picking out the flowers, and use caution while using the scissors and glue gun.

Remove any tags, stickers, and wrappers first.

Remove the wire form’s tags and stickers, as well as all of the fake flower, before you begin. A wrapper and tape are wrapped around each spool of burlap ribbon. It’s considerably simpler to remove the wrapper and tape off at least three of the rolls before beginning the wreath.

Wrap the wire form in the second step.

You’ll need three items for this step:

  • The wire wreath template
  • with burlap ribbon 
  • The flowery wire, to be precise. 

To begin wrapping the burlap ribbon, I selected the 2 o’clock position on my wire form. With approximately a centimeter or two of the burlap ribbon sticking up beyond the wire shape, I placed it on top of the wire form.

I carefully curved the ribbon over the top of the wire form and fastened it in place by winding a tiny piece of floral wire through the ribbon and onto the wire form once it was in place. Instead of using glue, I chose this method because I thought it performed a better job of attaching the ribbon to the frame.

I wrapped the ribbon in the following order: Begin wrapping the wire form from the front/top, wrapping it around the rear/bottom, and then back over the top/front. 

Make every effort to maintain the burlap ribbon tight when encircling the frame. I found that keeping the ribbon coiled in my fingers and gently unrolling it as I wrapped the wire form worked best for me. 

When I completed or began a fresh roll of ribbon while wrapping the form, I used floral wire to attach the ends to the wire form. Knowing I’d be adding fake flower elements to the wreath, I stopped wrapping the wire form between 4 and 3 o’clock and fastened the ends with floral wire. 

There is no right or wrong location to start or finish winding the ribbon around the wire shape when it comes to the arrangement of your floral elements. Simply do what seems to be the greatest option to you. 

Step Three: Stage Your Flowers & Secure

I placed the fake flowers on the wreath-in-progress before cutting off any stems so I could visually decide how I wanted the blooms to appear in the end.

I just inserted the flowers (stems and everything) into the wire form. I began trimming the lavender stems so that they were staggered in height and wouldn’t peek through the burlap ribbon on the bottom after I had a clear concept of what I wanted.

To assist maintain the structure of the lavender pieces and make it simpler to attach them on the wire frame, I tucked the lavender stems into the burlap ribbon. I used floral wire to attach the lavender all over the area, twisting and tying it in place.

After I had the lavender where I wanted it, I realized I needed a method to hot glue the flowers to the wire form because, to be honest, I was losing patience attempting to tie them in place with floral wire.

I thought the best course of action would be to cut a 3-inch long by 1-inch wide piece of excess burlap ribbon and wire it to the form in between the center and bottom front wires so that I could glue my fake flowers onto it. I was able to make it appear as full as I wanted because of this.

Also, the heads of the flowers just popped out during the procedure, so I didn’t have to trim the stems off the sunflowers. I just removed the tops and put the stems aside. 

It was also simpler to attach the flowers to the wreath after removing the tips. I had more surface area on which to put adhesive to attach them properly. Give the flowers a bunched, natural appearance while gluing them.

Step 4: Allow It to Dry

I let everything cure overnight after gluing the fake flowers to make sure everything was firm before attempting to put it on the door. It’s understandable if you want to hang it right away, but your patience will pay off.
