Fall wreath with "Dollar Store" flowers...fast & easy!


I usually shop for flowers at "Hobby Lobby" but decided to give a go at making a wreath from the "Dollar Store" floral aisle selection. I know at first you can be overwhelmed by the bright colors they offer, but I was able to pick out a selection that seemed to be surprisingly, fairly nice.

I started by using my old trusty grapevine wreath that I have had for years. The flowers usually come in a bunch of about five blossoms each. All you have to do is leave a few inches of the stem on each flower and clip them with your wire cutters. Start out with randomly poking one color of flowers throughout your wreath and then add the other color. Easy, fast (took about ten minutes!) and cheap to make. No need to glue so later you can change out for a new season. Do you have any "Dollar Store" floral projects that you have made?

    1. Thank you Susan...You have to be a little more selective with the choices at the Dollar Store because some of them are just not appealing, if you know what I mean :)

  2. Your wreath is very pretty, Judy. I bought a little spray at the Dollar Store last Christmas that I was surprised to find. Just a simple faux evergreen with red berries, and real pine cones & silk leaves. I put it in a pinch bottle. It looked good and I'll use it again this year. xxx ~ Nancy
