Creating this cheap fall wreath was created with many varieties of floral sprigs from the Dollar Tree and around my home. Using a few supplies this wreath turned out stunning and perfect for fall. One wreath is inspired by “pumpkin spice” and “falling leaves”!
Tying the burlap bow from Dollar Tree to hold everything in place. Use some floral wire or hot gun to secure everything in place. This wreath came out beautiful, perfect for spring and anyone can create in one afternoon.
What I bought at the Dollar Tree:
- a grapevine wreath
- burlap ribbon is desired color
- a fall leaf sprigs (a couple of white, creams and other fall color flower sprigs)
- hook to hang the wreath (Command hook or Small Nail)
- glue gun
- floral wire
- wire cutters
First, take your wire cutters and cut your desire leaves and flower sprigs that you would like to use on your wreath.
Next, take your newly cut sprigs and play around with how you would like to look on your wreath. Before gluing or securing anything down position sprigs to create where you like them to be placed.
This is the part in wreath design that is time consuming because you have to place and replace until you like it. I am picking so this is often longer than normal.
I decide to have my sprigs off center because it gave an interesting style. You can add, delete or place your florals anywhere you like the possibilities are endless.
Now hot glue your sprigs to the wreath or secure with floral wire. Take your burlap ribbon in desire color and cut your preferred length with your scissors, wrap around your wreath and glue in place and glue at top.
Finally, secure your hook onto the location of choice such as a door, window or mirror.
