DIY Dollar Store Fall Wreath

DIY Dollar Store Fall Wreath - Make your own fun DIY Dollar Store Fall Wreath with supplies all found at your local Dollar Store. Perfect for your front door, porch or mantle.

I was so excited to try my own version of this DIY Dollar Store Fall Wreath.  I love Fall, it’s my favourite season, I cannot wait to decorate for the next season as soon as school starts. My daughter is a big glitter fan (what four-year-old is not right?!?!) so she is always looking for glitter crafts to do with me.  This was a great compromise!

I hit up the Dollarama for some supplies and then came home to craft it up!  I suggest you check out your local Dollarstore for your favourite Fall items.

 

Materials Needed:

How to Assemble:

  • I heated up the glue gun and my kids helped me pick leaves (I alternated colours).  They handed me each colour and I used the glue gun to stick it on, they helped press it down.
  • Working around the wreath I glued all the leaves on until it was completely covered.
  • Now for the fun part using Mod Podge (or even regular white glue) the kids painted it on the leaves then sprinkled it with red glitter. They loved this part!
  • You can thread a ribbon through the top to hang it.  Or lean it on your fireplace.

I put it on my front walk leaning against a bale of hay for some pretty Fall decorations.  Just in time for the Autumn Equinox!!

Tattoo Ornament for Toddlers

My daughter has been so excited for Christmas, and all things Christmas related.  She told me she really wanted to make her teachers an ornament craft, since she is two, I thought it was important she did the bulk of it herself, but it had to be somewhat durable to survive a toddler excitedly running around with it to give to them.    I settled on this really cute Tattoo ornament, which involved her in each step.

Materials Needed

  • Plastic ornament ball
  • Temporary tattoos
  • Sponge and container of water
  • Glitter
  • Ribbon

Tattoo Ornament for Toddlers - A great way for them to be creative and make a fun present.
Method

  • I had Bee choose which tattoo she wanted for each of her teachers.  For us it was princesses, I cut it to size and placed the sticky side on the ornament, then pressed it down into a wet sponge filled with water for about a minute.
  • Then we carefully removed the paper ensuring the tattoo stuck to the ornament.
  • We opted for two, one on each side.
  • She choose a colour of glitter and I helped her pour it into the ornament with a funnel.
  • We tied a pretty ribbon around the top of the ornament.  Bee actually helped thread it and everything.

After that we made little tags for her teachers with their name, her name, and I had her colour them in.  We tied them to the ornament with a ribbon.
