My bestie has a Martha Stewart floral hoop wreath on her front door. It looks absolutely adorable. I did a quick google search and realized these simple wreaths can cost up to $100. Insert shock and awe. As with nearly everything, I thought to myself…I can make that. And so it began: The DIY Dollar Tree Wreath project.
The Supplies from the Dollar Tree
- Jute Wire (3).
- Faux Floral Stems (3).
- Hot Glue Gun (I had this on hand already).
- Wire snips (I had this one hand already as well).
- Something round to shape the wire. I used a side table.
Tutorial: DIY Dollar Tree Wreath
I was creating this DIY Dollar Store wreath on the fly. No template other than the inspiration. I started by cutting each jute wire packet in half. After do this with all three packets, I ended up with six equally length jute wrapped wires. I used a hair tie to temporarily secure one end. I literally took it out of my hair. (so resourceful) I started by braiding the jute wire together. Each section is two wires. After I finished braiding the wire, I twisted the ends together and secured with a little hot glue. You don’t have to worry about it being super neat because you will cover it with flowers. Shape the wire into a circle. This part took a bit of finessing. Then, it was time to add the faux flowers. First, I trimmed off the extra green stems so I was left with mostly flowers. I glued on one blue flower stem facing each direction. Then, I added on the pink flowers in the middle to make that section fuller. Finally, I added in the green leaves to the back, barely peeking out to add texture and dimension.
The entire project took about 30 minutes. It came in at just under $6.50. I’d call this one a huge success for a trendy home decor item. My front porch feels ready for Spring. Head on over to the Dollar Tree and make your own DIY Dollar Store wreath.
