How do you make an easy fall wreath?

It is super easy to make a nice-looking dollar tree fall wreath. All you have to do is follow this simple step-by-step how-to.

Supplies Needed:

1 foam wreath form
Scrap fabric or thick ribbon (color depends on if you want a year-round base or a fall specific DIY home decor wreath.)
Felt leaves
Hot glue sticks
glue gun

All of the supplies above can be found at your local dollar store. Just check out the crafting and seasonal section. The felt leaves come in a bag of 12-15 leaves, so they are a great value as you can use them on this craft as well as others! Should you opt to use scrap fabric (such as we did) over the ribbon, just scour your own craft supplies or local thrift store for some inexpensive fabric.

Directions:

1. Begin by cutting your fabric into strips or just taking your ribbon as is and wrapping it around the wreath form. Use a drop of glue to secure the end of the piece to the wreath when you begin, and again when you are finished. Continue wrapping until all of the foam is covered.
2. Apply some glue to the back of your felt leaves and begin arranging them onto the wreath. You can do so as we have pictured or create a pattern of your own.
3. Layer the leaves to create some interest. Do this by applying some glue to the back of a smaller leaf and stacking it on a larger leaf.
4. Once your wreath is to your liking, you can hang it from a wreath hook or attach a piece of ribbon for easy hanging!

This DIY home decor wreath is so festive and can remain up all of the way through the Thanksgiving season. It is also a great one to use until you replace it with a Christmas one!

As an added bonus you could make other attachments to the wreath and change them out with the seasons!  You could use push pins to attach them and change them out when needed. I love the idea of a solid ribbon base so you can use it for Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s day before you have to switch out the wreath base.

The best part is that you created this easy DIY fall wreath for just a few dollars. Head to your local Dollar Tree and grab the supplies you need to give this frugal and fun DIY home decor project a try!
