DIY Dollar Store, Halloween Wreath






Halloween happens to be one of my favorite holidays. I have a love for all things spooky, am a firm believer in ghosts, and I'm fairly certain that my house is haunted. What I love even more than all things spooky, is getting to decorate my house for Halloween. I usually go all out with the decorations but a few years ago, a lot of my decorations were destroyed during a terrible storm. Between that and most kids attending Trunk or Treat in our downtown over the last two years, I haven't felt like decorating for Halloween. However, this year is much different. While we won't be passing out candy because of Covid and I'll also be at work, I really want to decorate this year. 

Since finances are a concern for many of us across the country, I thought it would be great to see what types of Halloween decorations I could make myself. One thing I wanted to make is a cute wreath for our front entryway. This is an area of the house that often gets overlooked because we typically don't use our front door, but I felt like it needed something festive! I figured that I could make a fun wreath and keep it inexpensive by going to my local Dollar Store. Once there, I was so excited to see that my local store had expanded their craft section and had so many cute things to craft with. I found exactly what I needed to make a fun Halloween Wreath and it only costs $5.00! 





DIY Dollar Store Halloween Wreath





Take your wreath form and add a dab of glue or a piece of rolled tape. Begin to wrap your ribbon around the wreath form until it is completely covered in the ribbon. Take each strand of garland, and cut between each pom, making sure to leave enough of the ribbon to use as a tie. You can decide whether you want to fluff one side of the paper pom, or if you want to do both sides of the pom. I chose to do only one side, but if I had to do it again, I think I would do both sides. Go ahead and fuff up each pom-pom, leaving the ribbons untouched, you'll use those to tie them to the wreath. 





After each pom is fluffed, use the ribbon to tie each one, alternating colors, to the wreath form. I ended up using all but two of my poms. I secured each ribbon to the back of the wreath with a small piece of tape and made sure that each ribbon was knotted tightly. Since this is a paper wreath, I plan on using this indoors but I really love how this turned out. It was super simple to make and didn't take much time at all. The most time-consuming part is fluffing up the poms. I suggest having someone help you to make it go by faster. 

This was so much fun to make, and if you decide to make it, I hope you have fun also! Please tag us on FB or Instagram if you decide to make it! 


Happy Crafting!
