This Dollar Tree DIY wreath project is so easy. All you need are these burlap pumpkins and a few more supplies to make the wreath in minutes.
When I wasn’t looking? Dollar Tree went and glowed up.
I stopped by the store for some tissue paper and left with a cart full of fall projects. If you haven’t stopped by for a visit you should add it to your checklist for this week.
I came up with four projects just with the supplies I found there.
I’m starting with one of my favorites using these pumpkins.
September is just around the corner and I’m so happy because now?
I just made this pumpkin wreath. And the best part of the project? The pumpkins just CLIP IN. Yep. No glue. You make the project with clippable pumpkins.
When it’s time for Christmas? You can just UNCLIP the pumpkins and clip Christmas trees. You could make clips for every season and just change them out with new clips.
It’s the superhero of wreaths.
And here’s how I made it.
Here’s my fall pumpkin wreath.
Isn’t it the cutest?
I’ll show you exactly how I made it. You can find most of the supplies at your local Dollar Tree. In case your store is out (the cashier told me everything is selling so quickly) or if you don’t have a store in your area I went ahead and found similar supplies and linked them for you.
Are you ready to craft?
Isn’t it the cutest?
1. Start with a metal wreath form
This metal wreath form that I got from Dollar Tree has four rings and it’s curved.
There are three spaces on the wreath form between the four rings.
The goal is to weave the burlap in and out of the spaces.
2. Weave the burlap
Before I explain this step there is something important that I have to say.
If you make this wreath?
You cannot OVERTHINK it. It’s a kind of learn-as-you-go type of project. Cut off about three yards of the burlap ribbon. Start on the bottom ring and tuck the end around the bottom ring. Then weave the ribbon in and out between the rings. Every time you weave the burlap, pull it out as a little pouf. When you get to the end of the three yards? Tuck that end under the metal ring, too.
There are four sections of the metal wreath form. I used approximately three yards in each section.
It takes a little bit to get the hang of the poufing, but once you get started—you’ll see exactly how it works.
Keep wrapping and weaving and poufing until your wreath looks like this.
You might be tempted to stop here and add a ribbon and pronouce your wreath done.
You could add a few pumpkins.
3. Clip on the pumpkins
I found these burlap pumpkins at the Dollar Tree, too.
They were the inspiration for the project. I was originally going to hot glue them onto the wreath form, but when I got them home and opened up the package and saw that they had clips?
The idea for this wreath was born. They came three to a package in four different colors, but I liked the light and dark khaki the best.
After your burlap wreath is finished, just clip in the pumpkins in and amongst the burlap.
If you can’t find the pumpkins with clips?
You can hot glue these clips onto regular pumpkins.
Just between us? These clips are GOLD. I can’t believe how easy this wreath is to make. I also decided that I was going to keep the burlap wreath and clip in other things for different seasons.
Like pinecones for winter.
And Christmas trees for Christmas.
And flowers for spring.
It’s like the wreath that keeps going because nothing is permanent. You can make a wreath out of anything if you have these clips.
Here’s the finished wreath.
I added one last piece of the burlap ribbon at the bottom as a bow at the bottom of the wreath.
Then I tucked in a few picks of these felted acorns that I found at Dollar Tree, too.
It’s in my kitchen now in the corner waiting for the rest of my fall decor to show up.
And that fall decor?
It’s all just around the corner.
One project at a time. 🙂
PS I’ll give you a hint at the next project. It involves these tiny metal trucks with tiny hay bales.
