I love wreathes, but I just do not see paying the high prices on some of the store bought ones. I see vendors at craft shows displaying their beautiful handmade wreathes, but the prices are way more than I can afford. I’ve looked at and priced the materials to make some of these wreathes and they are not cheap! There’s also the time involved in making these gorgeous wreathes, so I completely understand why they are priced the way they are.
If you know me, then you know how much I love Dollar Tree and turning their items into something that looks way more expensive than it is. We are on a budget, yet I like nice things so I shop cheap and make my own home decor.
Let me show you how I made this beautiful spring wreath using only items from Dollar Tree.
What You Need
- Metal Wreath Form
- Fake Flowers – I used Daisies because they matched the wind chime
- Metal Wind Chime
- Hot Glue

I didn’t show the ribbon in the picture above because it was something I already had on hand. Dollar Tree has lots of really pretty ribbon, though! Also, I wasn’t going to add the ribbon, but I ran out of burlap and needed something to go along the bottom of my wreath. So now that you know the ribbon story, let’s get started!
What You Do
Step 1: Wrap the wreath form
I just wrapped the wreath form for my spring wreath in burlap in no special way. Just pick a spot and start wrapping making sure the burlap is overlapping as it goes around. Since I ran out of the burlap I chose to use this pretty coral color ribbon I already had on hand to finish the wreath.
Step 2: Add some flowers to the spring wreath
I added some daisies to my spring wreath at the top of the coral collar ribbon. You can place these anywhere you want on your wreath, but I wanted mine to be close to the bottom and off to the side. I just cut the stems off the flowers and stuck them into the holes in the burlap, using hot glue to secure them in place.
Step 3: Hang the wind chime
Adding the wind chime to the spring wreath was probably the easiest part! I just hooked the little hanger over the top of the wreath form, hiding it under the burlap. I did not glue it on just in case I wanted to change it out later.
Step 4: Add a bow to the spring wreath
I made a little bow for the top of the wreath to give it a little more decoration and not to look so plain. The added bow also hides the spot where the wind chime is hanging, so you don’t have a gap in the burlap!
Now you have a very easy and beautiful handmade spring wreath using only items from Dollar Tree! I love how simple and quick it is to make and how inexpensive. This wreath only cost me $4 to make!
