Dollar Store Christmas Wreath

Dollar Store Christmas Wreath

Hi! Kelly here from North Country Nest.

In honor of Christmas being just around the corner (can you believe it?!?), I’m sharing a three-step, five-minute dollar store Christmas wreath project. In case you missed the five dollar fall wreath, check that out here. I am a huge fan of DIY dollar store projects, because who doesn’t love a cute DIY that doesn’t break the bank?

Dollar Store Christmas Wreath – The Supplies

One package mini gold ornaments {affiliate link}
Hot glue gun {affiliate link}
Battery Operated Holiday Lights {affiliate link}
Washi Tape {affiliate link}

Dollar Store Christmas Wreath – The Process

Step one: Wrap the garland around the green foam. I left about an inch between each wrap around. The ends of the garland were metal, so stick that into the foam to firmly secure it in place.

Step two: Using the washi tape, secure the battery pack to the back of the wreath. Then wrap the lights around the green foam. Spacing will differ depending on the brand used, but with Target’s lights I was able to get around the entire wreath with one section.

Step three: Using the hot glue gun, glue the gold ornaments in random places around the wreath, being mindful of the lights. For this part, I turned the lights on so I wouldn’t cover them with an ornament.

And that’s it. Yep, three steps and under $10.

I’d love to hear if you give this DIY a try, so leave a comment below or send me an email.

All my best,

    Such a pretty wreath Kelly! Good idea to keep the lights on while glueing the ornaments, I could see myself glueing an ornament right onto the light! Eek!

      Thanks, Sarah! Hahaha I did that prior to turning the lights on, so you’re definitely not alone 🙂

      Yes, I love the dollar store and Target’s dollar section. Such great, inexpensive finds for fun craft projects! 🙂

    I love that you added the lights. I used to have a light up one but that I bought for high priced a few years ago. How great it is that you make your own – even with lights and for so cheap, too.
