Dollar Tree Wreath Craft
Perfect as a Christmas wreath or with just a few tweaks it can be a Valentine wreath!
Supplies: All items for this Dollar Tree craft can be found in store OR linked below where to buy online.
- 14” metal wreath form
- 3 packages decorative mesh (red)
- 1 package decorative mesh (white)
- 1 package white and red sparkly tulle
- 1 roll red sequin ribbon
- 15 red sparkle pipe cleaners
- Mini silver Christmas ornaments (or pink hearts if you prefer for Valentine’s Day)
- Hot glue
- Hot glue gun
You can find all of the above at your local Dollar Tree. Except for the glue gun. But I have seen glue sticks there!
Step 1: Start by cutting your red sparkle pipe cleaners in half.
Step 2: Cut all of your ribbon, mesh and tulle into 6 inch lengths.
Step 3: The mesh wants to naturally curl up after going around the roll. That makes life easier for this craft! Simply roll each piece of mesh into a tighter tube. You’ll want to roll the tulle diagonally.
Step 4: Gather your bunches. Use 4 pieces of mesh, ribbon and tulle; using at least 2-3 pieces of the red mesh for the bottom layer of each bunch. To make the bunches, lay each piece on top of the other, in a snowflake like pattern.
Step 5: Wrap a pipe cleaner around each bunch, twisting 3 times. You will be making 30 bunches like this.
Step 6: Attach the bunches to the wreath frame. Do this by laying the bunch on the front of the wreath, and going to to the back of the wreath, grabbing the two ends of the chenille stem, and attaching them to the two inner wires on the wreath form. To attach, twist the two ends of the chenille stem together 3 times, around the two inner wires. Each section of the wreath form will end up with 5 bunches attached.
Step 7: Lay the holiday wreath on a flat surface and fluff your bunches, until you have your desired look.
Step 8: Apply hot glue to the side of each ornament and arrange around the wreath, gluing them to the bunches.
If you’d like a Valentine wreath instead, simply hot glue pink hearts in place of the ornaments.
Such an easy Dollar Tree craft!
