Dollar Store Halloween Wreath

Sharing is caring!

I have been getting the Halloween decorations out and this weekend I did a little crafting. I made a spooky Halloween wreath almost entirely out of dollar store items. This post is sponsored by Dollar Tree, one of my favorite stores.


I always love scouring the Dollar Tree aisles for so many great decorations and supplies. There were so many fun Halloween things and these are the items I bought.



I started with a styrofoam wreath which I already had and began decorating.

First I wrapped the wreath with garland. Basically, just covering by spiraling the garland around the foam.

Then, once I covered the entire wreath, I fastened at both ends with some glue.


Now I had my base, I started to add things like the skeleton and bats. I made a little diagram so that you can see where I added the decorations. I also added the glitter skull to the top. I secured the items with push pins and I used a wire for the scull.


I also tied the ribbon to the bottom of the wreath. Oh, and the cool part? The skull’s eyes light up in different colors! I am not sure how long the battery will last, but it does add some pizzaz! What do you think?



And here he is again, with blue eyes.

Total price (besides the wreath), was $7, and I had decorations left over. The items I had were the wreath and puch pins. If you do not have a Dollar Tree near you, check out their Halloween supplies here.
