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!!

Footprint Egg Wreath + Free Printable & Spring Link-Up

Spring is coming and with it the Spring Equinox, Ostara, Easter, whatever you celebrate. I am about done with Winter and cannot wait for Spring. My kids still love doing footprint and handprint art (though it has been awhile), so we decided to make a Footprint Egg Wreath. The idea being the footprints are supposed to represent the eggs.

Footprint Egg Wreath + Free Printable - Time to get ready for Spring! Make this cute and easy Footprint Egg Wreath with your kids to decorate. Free printable to welcome Spring / Easter / Ostara, whichever.

Footprint Egg Wreath materials

Materials Needed:

  • Cardboard
  • Construction paper
  • Paint in various colours
  • Washi tape
  • Scissors, paintbrushes, glue
  • Egg printable (click here)

Footprint Egg Wreath directions

Instructions:

  • First I picked out three colours for the “eggs” and had Bee do two colours (three prints per colour) then she was too distracted (I blame Grandpa) so baby Po helped me with the other colour.  I painted their foot (re-applying each time) and stamped it on the paper.
  • Personally, I wanted a yellow decoration at the top, so Po got his hand painted yellow and stamped on the paper (which I am excited to say at one years old he knows how to do on the paper himself!).
  • While that dried I found a large bowl and drew a circle on my old cardboard box, then I used a container lid (aka smaller circle) and drew that in the middle, cutting it out to form a wreath.
  • I painted the wreath blue, because that was the colour paint left that I had the most of.  I set this aside to dry.
  • Grabbing the scissors I cut out the prints.

Time to decorate the eggs:

  • Next I gave Bee some washi tape to decorate the “eggs”, unfortunately, getting a three year old to do this means they do NOT look like eggs and don’t really have a pattern at all, she was also only interested in using one of the tapes and no interest in the other ones so they are not as colourful as I had hoped,  but she did it herself!
  • We glued the footprints around the outside of the wreath, the goal was alternating colours, but again, three year olds have a mind of their own and Bee had her own ideas of where she wanted stuff.
  • Lastly we finished off by gluing the hands at the top and having it hold the egg printable.
