Ten Cent Dollar Store Wreaths

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great day. There’s not much in this world that can be bought for ten cents, but today’s wreath craft is an exception.

I came up with this idea a couple of years ago when I was teaching art at my daughter’s middle school. I wanted to do something a little different, something they’d be proud to take home.

While strolling the aisles at the dollar store, I saw this package of garland and an idea began to percolate in my mind. Perhaps mini wreaths could be made with this?

I cut a 15″ piece to start. (You can get about 10 or so 15″ pieces from one package.)

Make a ring by connecting the ends together. I sort of made a loop at each end and hooked them together.

Raid your Christmas crafting stash for small items to decorate with and get started!

Here’s a natural looking one with just a few pine cones attached. 
Wouldn’t a garland of these look terrific?

The kids loved theirs so much, they hung them on their lockers.

One of my students used Christmas pipe cleaners and mini bells to decorate hers.
Isn’t it beautiful?

I used mini beads, pipe cleaner cork screws (wrap around a pencil, snip pieces off), a small bell, and some wired ribbon. This project can be used in many settings: school, Sunday school, or a senior center, for example. Easy but fun, the results can be very pleasing.

  3. Hello. It's always nice to meet another Dollar Tree addict. Maybe we should form a support group? The wreath's are a a very nice idea.

  4. They all look great! I would definitely do this with my kids' classes if thy were younger. I could have used this idea when I was in charge of the Christmas craft for my son's 1st grade class!

  5. This is a fun project! I am always wanting ideas like this to do with my grands. Thanks for sharing tI with SYC. Loved them on all the lockers!

  8. Oh so cute! I'm hoping I can find some of that garland as this would be a fun project to do with my nieces. I could even see making smaller ones to use as ornaments on a white or colored tree.

  9. Hello!! Just wanted to let you know I will be using this in a round up (posting soon) from the Teach Me Tuesday party! Very much appreciate you linking up with us 😉

  10. These are adorable; and to think I’ve probably walked right by this kind of garland as it is too big for dollhouse minis and too small for a full sized wreathe! Another, add to my list item!
