As I have mentioned before, I am not a very crafy mom. On occasion though, I like to try my hand at a project though. This time around I decided that the house needed some Fourth of July decor, but I was not about to spend a fortune on it. There are so many adorable wreaths out there for any occasion, but I am cheap and just can’t shell out what they cost, so I decided to make my own. This Dollar Tree DIY 4th of July wreath turned out pretty decent I think. It was so easy and even my 4 year old got in on the crafting fun.

Dollar Tree DIY 4th of July Wreath
Right now, if you take a trip into any Dollar Tree, you will find that there is an over abundance of red white and blue decor. They have everything from scarves, to flip flops, flowers, to tiny little hats. Really, they have all of the 4th of July goodness that any ‘Merica loving gal could want and then some. So when I decided that I was going to make a 4th of July wreath, I went straight to my local dollar tree and went hog wild.
So I may have actually purchased a bit more than I really needed for my Dollar Tree DIY 4th of July wreath, but that is okay. There is no feeling of guilt since EVERYTHING is only a dollar, and I can find other uses for what did not go onto the wreath.
Most importantly, you will need a wreath form. My dollar tree had loads of them with the gardening supplies, but you might have to hunt around. If you can’t find one, they have them rather cheap on Amazon as well.
Other than that, you can get as creative as you want! I used two scarves that I found, along with a whole slew of red white and blue supplies!
What to Do
I ended up taking the two scarves, and wrapping them around the wreath form. This gave me a really nice base to work with.
Then I took my sign that I found, and put hot glue on the back and stuck it in the middle of my wreath.
Then I needed something that would go on the top where the wreath could hang. I found a really cute hanger with bells on it, and hot glued that to the very top. The bells were a little long, and covered my sign. So I ended up wrapping them around the hanger a few times in order to shorten them.
Once those were good ans secure, I added some more decorative pieces that I found. A bow, tiny hat, and some fake flowers really made it come together well.
Do I think it looks like a $80 wreath? Not quite, but I really like it and for just a few dollars, it looks really cute on my door.
It turned out cute, and it was a fun little craft that my daughter and I were able to do together!
