Dollar Store Wreath

Fall Flower and Pinecone Wreath

Fall is in full swing and it's time for some fall decorating!  I opened up my small box of fall decorations last week and decided I needed to add a few more items to my stash, especially since I now have a whole house to decorate... not just an apartment.  I planned on getting a cheap vine wreath from the dollar store with some fall flowers to decorate it with, but the dollar store was fresh out of wreaths.  I assume everyone had the same idea.... that's what I get for living in such a crafty state...  :)

I bought three fall stems for $3 and then headed over to the thrift store to see if I could find an old abandoned wreath I could bring back to life.  I found a sad old spring wreath and bought it for all of $.75! oh ya- take that dollar store!

With the help of some hot glue and spray painted pine cones I fixed that sad wreath up and hung it on my front door.  Not bad for $3.75!

  2. Pretty! Good job on the deals! I saw grape vine wreaths in the dollar bins at Target the other day. Just in case you want to stock up. ;) It looks nice against your dark brown door.

  3. Beautiful job! What cracks me up is reading in a well-know retailer's catalog that a wreath they were selling was $50. I had a homemade one on my door at that moment that looked nearly the same. I didn't keep track of what it cost, but probably what yours cost. Not only are we saving tons of money, we have the fun of being creative, and, in your case, getting some more mileage out of an old, unwanted wreath, saving it from the landfill. Love these ideas of yours. Looking forward to more.

  9. Elise,
    This wreath turned out super cute! And what a bargain. I hate how expensive it is to make crafts sometimes. Thanks so much for sharing at Creative Thursday.
