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!!

Valentine’s Day Heart Wreath

With Valentine’s Day coming up my daughter is asking to do a lot of heart crafts, being a toddler we have to be creative to find ones she can be involved in.

She loves hand print things so we decided to use hand prints as the focal point of a heart wreath for valentine’s day.

Valentine's Day Heart Wreath - A cute Valentine's Day wreath to make with your child from their handprints. A fun decoration for anyone's house during the love season!

Materials Needed:

  • Construction paper in red, white, and pink.
  • A piece of cardboard cut into a heart.
  • Paint (we chose purple).
  • Glue, scissors, pencil, paint brushes.
  • Ribbon.

Method:

  • I started off by tracing their hand prints onto a sheet of construction paper.
  • I layered all three together to cut so I only had to do it once.
  • While I was cutting I had Bee paint the heart her colour of choice, which was purple.
  • I had to let the heart dry first before we could assemble so we finished it the next day.
  • We glued around the outside of the heart and placed our hand prints around the edge.
  • We decided to put a heart decoration in the center, but that is optional.
  • We taped a piece of ribbon on the back to hang it with.
