5 Minute DIY Fall Dollar Store Wreath

I went in for some scouring pads and got distracted by pumpkins. Next thing you know I'm replacing my plastic basket for a shopping cart and an hour later I walk out with everything I need to make a 5 Minute Fall Dollar Store Wreath and a whole heck of a lot more. Does that ever happen to you?

The wreath practically made itself without my having to think about it as a little bit of this and a little bit of that landed in my cart. Oh, and those pumpkins that were the culprit for my shopping spree? They were turned into these painted dollar store pumpkins. And the faux flowers and picks that filled my cart look lovely with my Aged Fall Mirror.

These are the supplies I used to make the quick and easy Fall wreath.

I should note that I bought all of my supplies at Dollarama, a Canadian dollar store chain.

Instructions for the Fall dollar store wreath


I simply wrapped one roll of decorative vine ribbon around the willow wreath and hot glued it in place on the bottom.

Next, I layered and glued felt leaves onto the bottom of the wreath. I turned the leaves upside down so the veins didn't show because, in all honesty, I find them kind of tacky.

In my stash, I had half a small styrofoam pumpkin leftover from my DIY Scrabble Tile Fall Banner. I hot glued it in the center of the felt leaves and secured it with florist wire on the back as pictured below.

Next, I glued a tree branch slice, leftover from my Wood Slice Map Ornaments, for the stem. I  twisted a piece of florist wire around the branch and wrapped the ends around a pencil to make tendrils.

I bought two more rolls of this pretty vine ribbon in green and taupe. Haven't a clue what I'll do with them yet - perhaps next year.

That's all there was to it. In five minutes or less you can make this cute inexpensive wreath. Its small size makes it perfect for hanging on a mirror or cabinet door.

  1. That's so cute Marie. Love all the lovely, warm colors you used too.

    Mmmmmmmmmm, let's see what's in my cart? Lots and lots of Spring bulbs because my favorite season is just around the corner here in South Africa, Happy dance, whoot, whoot and stencils. Lordy the stencil bug has bitten big time over here. I'll just have to practise so I don't mess them up like I normally do ;-) Any tips my friend?

    1. I'm so envious that it's Spring where you are, especially because we didn't get a summer. Did you say stencils? So much fun playing with stencils and if I could offer two important tips - little paint on the brush and wipe the back of the stencil with baby wipes before doing pattern repeats. Happy stenciling!

  2. Love your fall wreath, Marie and that it's made from dollar store items. Having half of a pumpkin in your craft stash sounds like me. You never know when things like that will come in handy!

    1. Right! Us DIYers never throw things out, do we, because we know someday there will be a purpose for it and we'll be grateful that we kept it.
