Easy DIY Wreath (Using Mostly Dollar Store Supplies)

I have been wanting to make a new wreath for my bare front screen door for a while. I was at Dollar Tree the other day and gathered some materials to make an Easy DIY Wreath (Using Mostly Dollar Store Supplies). A few things came from Hobby Lobby as well.

Materials Used for this Project…

12 inch Wreath FormFloral Garden Decorative Rope, 7.875 ft.
Floral Garden Cotton Nautical Rope White
Faux Flowers

I wanted a wreath that was coastal without being to themey, if you know what I mean. I had seen a similar wreath on Pinterest and thought I’d give it a try and put my own twist on it.

Step 1 in making this Easy DIY Wreath

First, wrap the Dollar Tree rope around the foam form. I did both ropes at the same time so they were alternating colors.

Next, I used my glue gun to adhere some monstera leaves to the wreath form, and one flower I found at Hobby Lobby and called it a day.

I did like it this way, but once I hung it on my door I dunno, it just didn’t look right. I tried the front screen door and the actual front door and decided there was something missing.

Back to the drawing board, and back to Dollar Tree I went. I ended up purchasing a handful of spring flowers and some greenery. Here is what I came up with. Putting them in a bouquets of sorts, I used an elastic so make them stay together.

Lastly, I glued the flowers to my wreath and fiddled with them until I was happy.

Honestly, this is not my favorite wreath that I have ever made and I’ve made a few. It’ll do for Spring. What do you think?

    I really like the rope part of the wreath, and all of the other pieces are pretty, but I think that the size of the monstera leaves throw the balance off. They seem too large and out of proportion for the rest of the wreath. You’re way ahead of me though…I just keep reading about wreaths and looking at pictures and doing nothing about making one. Thanks for sharing your project 🙂

      YES! Maybe that is the issue. I am going to try to re-work it. Thanks for the input. Have a great weekend.

    Take the big green leaves off. I think that will make the wreath softer.

      Yes, a few others have said that too. I’ll give it a try! Thanks so much for your input. Have a great weekend.

    Some pretty spring ribbon would look really good instead of the brown twine.l
