Yes… we got another Dollar Tree DIY project and I’m not mad about it.
Today, I am sharing how to make this adorable Halloween wreath. If you’ve been following along my blogs for awhile now, you may know that I created this Fall inspired Dollar Tree wreath a few years back, and it was so simple to do! This year I decided to make one for Halloween, but this time I seen that they had a witched hat, and thought that would be so cool to make instead of a traditional round wreath. But, you can definitely follow the steps I’m going to share with you and apply it to your round wreath.. if you choose to get that instead.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 2 tulle rolls
- 2 mesh rolls
- 2 ribbon rolls
- 1 bag of chenille stems (cure pipes)
- any other decorations to add to your wreath *optional*
- hot glue gun *optional and if adding other decorations to your completed wreath*
Using your scissors, cut the mesh, ribbons, and tulle about 4 inches in length. To make life easier I cut all the ribbon, mesh, and tulle at once so that way I know how much I had to work with & so that they were all the same size.
Take 1 piece of mesh, tulle, and ribbon and layer it on top of each other. Since the ribbon is a lot smaller in width then the mesh and tulle, I layered that on top.
Pinch the center of the layers in the middle together and take 1 of the cure pipes (I cut mine in half) and twist it in the middle where you are pinching at.
Take your bow and attach it to your wreath. Make sure to twist it a few times so it doesn’t become loose.
Repeat step 1 through 5 about 40 or so times. Tip- I like to mix my ribbons and layers. There are times were I will only use 1 white tulle, 1 black tulle, and 1 ribbon. The switch it and use 1 mesh, 1 black tulle, and 1 white tulle (no ribbon). So definitely play around with it, unless you like the uniform look. Also make sure with are spreading them out. Not EVERY gap needs to be filled, so don’t freak out if you see some of the wreath wire or a little bit of gap. In Step 6 you will see why.
Now that you’ve applied all the bows onto the wreath.. here is where you will take the layers of the bows and spread them apart. Here is where you will really see your wreath come to life and get fuller!
Now you can definitely stop at Step 6, but I like to add in a few more decorations pieces…. because I’m extra! So, here is where your hot glue gun comes in handy. Plug it in and make sure you have something underneath it, so no glue spills out. Also, be careful with the kiddos if they are around. Now let your imagine go wild and add whatever other decoration pieces you have to your wreath. Here I added some black tube tulle that I had and purchased from Dollar Tree last year, and I decided to weave the tube tulle in and out throughout the wreath. I also purchased these black/white bows and glued them in, and lastly added these super cute Halloween ornaments to the wreath, which I felt completed it!
And voila you are done! Simple right? It may look complicated, but I promise you, it’s not! I would also say this took me a total of maybe 40 mins to do. It probably could of been less, but since I was taking pictures of every step for this purpose of sharing it with you all, it took me a bit longer. But, I hope you like it. You can definitely create a wreath for every holiday there is. Don’t be scared to get crafty and have fun with it! You’ll be surprised at what you can create!
