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.
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.
Finally, I finished it off with a chalkboard gift tag. I found these tags in the dollar bins at Target.
Supplies For Wreath
To make this project you will need the following craft supplies:
- 1 styrofoam wreath
- 1/4 yard burlap, cut into 2 inch strips
- 3 bunches of dollar store flowers
- 1 scarecrow or similar decor piece (from dollar store)

Within 20 minutes, I was finished.
