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:

  • Dollar Store wreath- I found a wooden/wicker one
  • Leaves – real or fake from the Dollar Store
  • Red glitter (or yellow, orange, or brown, any leaf colour really)
  • Mod Podge & paint brush
  • Glue gun & stick

 

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!!

Leaf Handprint Tree

I love handprint crafts.  The reminder and view of my children’s adorable little hands just melts me.  I jump at all the ideas for handprint crafts, particularly seasonal.  I love using their hand prints for leaves and wanted to try making a wreath out of it using a paper plate.

Materials needed:

  • Construction paper in multiple colours for leafs (I used red, green, yellow, and orange)
  • A paper plate
  • Glue (I used a glue gun)
  • Scissors and crayon
  • Brown paper or cardboard for the tree

How to do it:

I used the crayon to trace their hands (crayon doesn’t leave marks on them) then cut them out.

TIP: if you stack multiple papers (I used orange, red, and yellow) together when cutting you only have to cut once and it saves time.

This was my first time doing Po’s handprint so I was ridiculously excited about it.  His little hands are so cute!

After cutting out the hand leaves, I used a glue gun to glue it onto a paper plate, I used my toddlers hand prints with the bright colours around the outside and the small baby green ones in the centre, making it look more like a tree.

Next I cut a small leaf out of the brown and a large trunk.  Glued it all together and I have a beautiful handprint tree!
