I feel like it has been fore-eh-ver (to be said like Squints from The Sandlot, of course) since I’ve shared a quick and easy DIY project with you, so today we’re going all-in and walking you through how to make a simple dollar store fall wreath for under $5 bucks.

To reach the maximum savings capability, you need to have on hand: a glue gun, glue sticks and some fabric scraps. Since I know you’re a spontaneous crafter, I’m willing to bet you have these somewhere around the house. 🙂

Okay, let’s jump in!

How to Whip Together a Simple Dollar Store Fall Wreath

Step one. Cut your fabric scraps into one-inch-wide and six-inch-long strips

Step two. Glue the strips of fabric randomly over the foam wreath form. I started with on spot and worked my way around the entire form, gluing each strip in random directions as I went.

Step three. Tear off one of the greenery stems and glue it to the front of the form. Repeat with a second stem, going in the opposite direction.

Step four. Tear off two smaller greenery stems and glue them on top of the larger pieces.

Step five. Glue a burlap leaf on top of the greenery pieces.

Step six. Pop off a burlap flower (or two) and glue them in the center of the leaf/greenery setup.

And that’s pretty much it. As with any wreath-making, it’s all about experimenting and seeing what works for you.

Thankfully, the dollar store has AMPLE crafting items and you’re only down a few bucks if what you made isn’t really your thing… or if your dogs decide it’s a play toy and tear it to shreds (not speaking from experience, of course!) 😛

Happy crafting!

All our best,
