DIY Dollar Store Fall Welcome Wreath Tutorial


Have you checked out the cost of wreaths lately? Their prices can get rather ridiculous and anything inexpensive can look pretty barren.  Here's how I made this cute new Fall wreath for my door using dollar store supplies.

Thankfully I already had an extra grapevine wreath form that I never used.  I hit Dollar Tree (a store where everything is only a $1 a piece) to see if I could find something that would work for it and I was definitely not disappointed.  


I nabbed several packs of leaf garland, some cute fall themed rolls of wire edged ribbon, a sign and some cute scarecrow picks.

First I added the leaf garland around the front of the wreath using floral wire. I started with one piece of garland attaching it at the beginning, securing it a long the way with more wire and then attached the end.



I repeated the process adding more pieces of leaf garland until the wreath was as full as I wanted it.  I think I used 5 or 6 pieces in total.


Next I added little loops of ribbon accents.

I folded pieces of ribbon in half (width wise), secured the ends by wrapping wire and then attached the ends down in the wreath using hot glue.

Next came my favorite part.  I love these little guys!


To add them I simply broke off some the stick length, added hot glue and stuck the in place.


To finish it up I added the sign.  The original sign was two pieces but I decided to use just the hanging "Welcome" part.

I cut the existing cord to take it apart, used pieces of scrap yarn I had laying around to tie it to the top, center inside of my wreath and I was all done!

I'm super happy how it turned out and I spent next to nothing for it!

I hope you enjoyed this craft tutorial and be sure to check back soon.  I'm currently finishing up a light up, paper mache jack-o'-lantern for my front porch as well.  I will be bringing you that tutorial asap and until next time, happy crafting!

    People don't celebrate Christmas like this in my country, so there is also no tradition of making and hanging wreaths. However, I am intersted in making hand-mades, and your tips would be really helpful . By the way, your stuff looks so cool, and you must be really skillful and professional. I know I still have a lot to learn, wish me luck then.
