If you know me, you know that I love anything crafty. Whether it’s crafts, painting, or doodling, I’ve done it. When you’re a crafter like me, the dollar store is your best friend.

I’ve made what feels like a million things from supplies I’ve purchased at the dollar store, but recently, I decided to try my hand at something a little different. I bought the following supplies at my local Dollar Tree:

-1 wooden wreath
– 3 base flower bundles (the majority of your wreath will be this color)
– 2 accent flower bundles
– floral tape

All of the above is regularly priced at one dollar, meaning I would’ve spent around $7 for all of it. However, I ended up using very little floral tape, and probably could’ve gotten away without it. If this is your first wreath, I recommend some sort of tape to assist you. You’ll also need some scissors or wire cutters.

1. First, you want to take your flowers and cut the stems at 2-3 inches. It doesn’t have to be exact, as you can see below. You’ll want to keep the leaves on your flowers to help with the bulk of your wreath.

 

2. Next, you’ll want to start with your base flowers. Take your first one, and put it in the top of your wreath. I was able to weave the wire stem in between the parts of the wreath, and then bend it around on the back. If you’re worried about it staying put, apply some floral tape over the wire.

 

3. Keep repeating step 2 until you have a few flowers done at the top of your wreath. You want to start with the bulk at the top just in case you run out of flowers or don’t space them properly. img_9588

4. Once you’ve completed your base flowers at the top, you can start moving downward and spacing them out. As you go, leave small spaces for your accent flowers later.img_9589.jpeg

5. After your base flowers are all done, you can add in your accent flowers. You can do this with as many as you would like, but I chose to only use a few.

Once your accent flowers are all in where you would like them to go, you’re finished and can enjoy your new wreath!
