Fall Wreath Dollar Store - Supplies

INSTRUCTIONS for this dollar tree Halloween wreath:

STEP 1: wrap wreath form in scarves

After gathering all the necessary craft supplies listed above, the first step is to wrap the wreath form with the scarves.  How do you wrap the wreath form in scarves?  

Grab a scarf and fold the end in quarters and use a few pins to hold it in place on the backside of the wreath form. Dollar Store Halloween Wreath Pin ScarfOnce the scarf is pinned, start wrapping it tightly around the wreath form overlaying as wrapped.  When the end of the scarf is reached, again use a few pins to attach the end to the backside of the wreath form.   Dollar Store Halloween Wreath Wrap Scarf

In the same matter, start wrapping the second scarf around the wreath where the first one leaves off.  Made sure it begins and ends in the back of the wreath. Dollar Store Halloween Wreath Scarf Covering Wreath

The wreath should be completely covered with no styrofoam showing.

Note: Depending on the size of the wreath, more scarves may be necessary.

STEP 2: add leaves, Halloween decoration and flowers

Let's add embellishments to the wreath.  For this wreath, leaves, flowers and a pumpkin decoration were used. If one or more of these items are not available, simply swap them for something else.

With a scissor (not a fabric scissor), cut two fall leaves from the stem.  To remove the flowers from the stem simply pull them off. Dollar Store Halloween Wreath Decorations

Plug the glue gun cord into an electric outlet.  Let the glue gun heat up a few minutes to melt the glue. While the glue gun is heating, decide where to place the pumpkin decoration and where to place the leaves. Dollar Store Halloween Wreath Place Pumpkin

Glue the fall leaves to the inner bottom of the wreath. Dollar Store Halloween Wreath Hot Glue Leaves

Next, add the pumpkin decoration to the wreath. This pumpkin decoration is flat and hollow at the bottom.  As you can see in the picture below, when placing it on the wreath, there is a space between the pumpkin and the wreath.

Dollar Store Halloween Wreath Glue Pumpkin So, to attach it with glue to the wreath, the glue must be applied to the sides of the pumpkin.  Squeeze the glue gun trigger and apply a generous amount of hot glue to the sides of the pumpkin.  Place the pumpkin on the inner bottom of the wreath between the leaves and hold it for a few minutes until the glue dries.

Finally, glue the flowers to the wreath covering the exposed section under the pumpkin.

STEP 3: add hanger and bow

A hanger and bow is the final step. Dollar Store Halloween Wreath Add Hanging RibbonCut a piece of ribbon as long as wished as a hanger.  Wrap it around the top of the wreath and tie a knot.  The knot can either show at the top when hanging or be glued to the back of the wreath.

Once the hanger is in position.  To make sure the hanger stays in position, place a dab of hot glue on the wreath, press the ribbon hanger into it.

Finally, glue the bow to the wreath. Dollar Store Halloween Wreath Finished Wreath Ta-Dah! It's ready to hang on the door or somewhere in the living area as a Halloween decoration.
