DIY Dollar Tree Hocus Pocus Halloween Wreath

When it comes to crafting, the simplicity (and value) of a Dollar Tree craft is what really draws me in. But I also love to come up with a unique concept from random items that I find while in store. And there are just so many ideas that swarm around my brain whenever I’m at my local Dollar Tree. I’m not sure my husband likes it, because I have bags of Dollar Tree items stashed in our basement. Or sometimes dining room. Okay. Often in the dining room. I think this is a sign that I need my own craft room or work space at our house, right?

Halloween decorations are one of my favorite crafts to create. It’s such a fun season to decorate for and there are so many different options. While wood signs with spooky phrases or even a decorative metal sign are the perfect door hangers, I really wanted to up the ante this year with a themed wreath. So I got out my wreath makers supplies, picked up a few new additions at the Dollar Tree and got to work on something Hocus Pocus themed. Perfect timing for the new movie coming out!

A Little Hocus Pocus

Why is Hocus Pocus so popular?

The original Hocus Pocus came at a time when Disney was dabbling in making spooky family movies. We 80’s and 90’s kids definitely feel a sense of nostalgia when we watch the old film. That would be why it’s so popular! We want to share our childhoods with our own kids. And so now a new generation gets to experience all the magic and fun!

Hocus Pocus Wreath

Remember the spooky decor in the home of the Sanderson Sisters? This witch wreath definitely fits the theme combining skulls with orange, black and purple. The perfect piece of Disney inspired Halloween decor! I’m thinking that it works great as a Haunted Mansion decoration, too.

How To Make A Dollar Tree Wreath

Making a wreath with supplies found at the Dollar Tree is so easy to do. This Halloween wreath costs just $8 to make!

What you’ll need:

All of the items for this Halloween craft can be found at your local Dollar Tree OR I linked below where you can buy online.

  • 14″ square metal wreath form
  • 2 packages black deco mesh
  • 1 package orange decor mesh
  • 2 rolls purple jeweled ribbon
  • 10 black sparkle chenille stems (pipe cleaners)
  • 8 small plastic skulls

Additional supplies:

  • Hot glue
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors

What you’ll do:

Step 1: The first thing you’ll do is cut the black sparkle pipe cleaners in half.

Step 2: Cut all of your ribbons into 6 inch lengths.

Tip: Half of a pipe cleaner is 6 inches and perfect for measuring where to cut!

Step 3: The mesh ribbon naturally wants to curl into a tube shape. You’ll want to roll each piece into a tighter tube.

Step 4: Layer ribbons on top of each other; 2 pieces of black mesh ribbon, 1 piece of orange mesh ribbon and 1 piece of purple jeweled ribbon.

Step 5: Wrap a pipe cleaner stem around each bunch and twist 3 times. You will be making 20 bunches like this. (Make more if you would like a more full wreath.)

Step 6: Attach each bunch to the wire wreath frame by laying a bunch on the front of the wreath, and then going to the back of the wreath, grabbing the two ends of the pipe cleaner stem, and attaching them to the two inner wires on the metal wreath form. Then simple twist again 2-3 times to secure the pipe cleaners to the wires of the wreath form. I put 5 on each side of the wreath, but you can put more or less depending on the look you are going for. 

Step 7: Lay the wreath on a flat surface and fluff your bunches, until you have your desired look.

Step 8: Apply hot glue to the back of each plastic skull and then arrange around the wreath by gluing them to the bunches.
