20 Minute Dollar Store Decor

Hello Friends! Even though the temperatures here have been in the mid-eighties, I am hereby declaring it fall in our home. It’s time to bring out the fall decorations and now that football is starting, it might as well be here already. I am watching some football and putting together a dollar store fall wreath. I am using a tv tray for my craft table. Not ideal, but sometimes I can make it work for simpler crafts like this one.


Dollar Store Fall Decor Supplies

As you know, I love shopping at the dollar store for cheap organizing and decor ideas and I find it fun to challenge myself to make items using mostly dollar store items. I do not like to spend a lot of money on things that I only have out for a month or so each year. Plus, I would rather spend the money on other things like travel. So let’s get started with this session of 20 minute dollar store decor.

Fall craft supplies from the dollar store

So I gathered my items together and got busy.

First I covered the styrofoam wreath with burlap strips of fabric.

Once I wrapped the burlap, I glued the end.  Then I cut all of the flowers so that only 1″ of stem is left.  I put these into the wreath in several places by pressing the flower into the styrofoam.


Then I added the scarecrow and the ribbon bow.

Chalkboard Tags

Finally, I finished it off with a chalkboard gift tag. I found these tags in the dollar bins at Target.
