Growing up in West Virginia, fall meant lots of beautiful color on the trees. Living in the desert, my exposure to fall foliage is much more limited, so I rely on decorations to give my house that fall feeling! This DIY fall wreath is fun, and frugal – made with items from my local dollar store!
I purchased everything for this wreath at my local Dollar Tree. Store selections might vary by location.
- 2 bunches of leaves – $1 (each)
- 1 bunch flowers – $1
- 1 spool burlap ribbon $1
- 1 grapevine wreath $1
- 1 felt owl $1
I also used scissors, hot glue, and a hot glue gun that I already had, and did not include in my pricing.
I started out by removing all the tags from everything, and cutting the leaves off of the floral bush, leaving the stems. Next I glued the felt owl to the grapevine wreath.
Looping strips of burlap around the back of the wreath created a larger appearance. I used hot glue to attach the strips. The burlap gave it a softer look, and some contrasting color. My local Dollar Tree had a variety of colors, a bright orange, or a dark red would also look nice.
I just cut the burlap into strips, and folded it over before gluing the loops all the way around.
After the hot glue dried and everything felt secure, I just flipped the wreath over, and tucked the leaves and flowers into the grapevine. I didn’t use any hot glue, because I planned on using my wreath indoors. Tucking them in to the wreath will also allow me to rearrange the flowers, or change them out for other colors if I want to change them later. If you are going to be using this wreath outside I would use hot glue.
For the last step, I took a piece of thread off the edging of one of ribbon, and created a loop through the grapevine, allowing me to hang the wreath.
This fall wreath came together in about 20 minutes, and for just $6! It’s an easy, inexpensive DIY craft project you can do on your next Sunday Funday, or any day of the week. With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, it makes a great hostess gift too! I’d love to see your finished wreath projects! Tag me in your Instagram pics @thesundayfundayblog – Happy crafting!
