Do I ever love a good DIY Dollar Tree craft. I’m thrilled with how this Hocus Pocus Halloween wreath turned out. So much so that I decided to share the step-by-step instructions with you! It’s the perfect Halloween wreath and a decoration that will put a spell on all who enter your door.
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 in store. And there are just so many ideas that swarm around my brain whenever I’m at my local store. 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?

Remember the spooky decor in the home of the Sanderson Sisters? This Hocus Pocus 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.
This Hocus Pocus Halloween wreath is so easy to make and can be tweaked to fit any holiday or theme!
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 decorative mesh in black
- 1 package decorative mesh in orange
- 2 rolls purple jeweled ribbon
- 10 black sparkle pipe cleaners
- 8 small plastic skulls
- Hot glue
- Hot glue gun
What you’ll do:
Step 1: 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.
A spooky Disney inspired Halloween decoration!
