At Home DIY September Challenge – DIY Dollar Tree Fall Wreath

Do you have a Fall wreath hanging on your door yet?  As of today, I do!  And I made it myself for less than $20 🙂  For this month’s At Home DIY Challenge, my blogger friends and I were challenged to create unique home decor for just $20.  I’ll show you how I made this DIY Dollar Tree Fall Wreath for less than $20!

Ready made wreaths are pricey!  I went to Dollar Tree and bought the supplies I needed for $20.  I didn’t use everything, so that’s why my wreath costs less than $20.

Here’s what I bought:

-Silk Gerbera Daisies in 3 fall colors.  I bought 16 stems, which had 4 flowers per stem.

-An acorn wood cut

-2 glitter pumpkins


Everything else I had on hand, including a grapevine wreath form that I found at a tag sale for 50 cents.

I made it to Dollar Tree just in time, because the acorn wood cut was the very last one!  There were only two glitter pumpkins, too.  I started by painting the bottom half of the acorn.

Step 1. 

Draw a line across the bottom of the acorn cap.

Step 2.

Paint the bottom half of the acorn.  I used Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint in Chocolate.  Let dry.  Apply a second coat if desired and let dry.  This is the same color that I used on my Rope Spool Plant Stand.

Step 3.

Apply glue to the acorn cap.  I used Mod Podge.

Step 4.

Sprinkle glitter onto the glue.  Shake off excess and reapply to bare spots as needed.

Step 5.

Hot glue a piece of jute twine along the bottom of the acorn cap to provide a separation between the paint and glitter.

Step 6.

Snip the flowers off the stems, leaving about one and a half to two inches of stem.

Step 7.

Apply hot glue to the stems and push into the crevices of the grapevine wreath.  Alternate colors and arrange as desired.  You will need to overlap in places to avoid bare spots.  Cover about one quarter of a section of the wreath.

Step 8.

Turn the completed acorn over and attach two pipe cleaners with hot glue to the underside.

Step 9.

Attach the acorn to the wreath at an angle, and secure with the pipe cleaners from behind.

Step 10.

Stick a wooden skewer into a glitter pumpkin.  Snip off most of the skewer, leaving about five inches.  Add a little hot glue to keep it in place.

Step 11.

Poke the pumpkin skewer into the desired location on the wreath and snip off the extra skewer underneath.  I decided to use just one pumpkin.

Step 12.

Apply glue and a pipe cleaner to the back of the owl, then attach to the wreath like the acorn.  I put mine above the pumpkin.

Step 13.

Continue to fill in the wreath with flowers until all of the bare spots are covered.  Then the wreath is done!

I love how vibrant the colors look against my blue front door!

I didn’t use all of the florals and one of the pumpkins, so the total cost of this wreath (not including items from my craft stash) was just $16!

I hope my DIY Dollar Tree Fall Wreath gave you some inspiration.  You really can make a designer looking wreath yourself for a fraction of the cost!
