This modern dollar store DIY wreath for spring is so simple to make using just a few supplies from the dollar store and brings a fresh boho vibe without the traditional wreath form.
I’m so freaking happy with how this little DIY came out you guys! It’s modern but boho and super affordable to pull together for a little update to my office for spring.
I think you’re going to see every wreath I ever make styled on this barn door from now on because I love it so much. And it was a lot of work so I want to show it off- ha! This door is giant which makes this wreath look a little small, but it adds some really nice colour and texture in this white space!
I’ve been challenging myself to create decor that I love using dollar store craft supplies. I’m always amazed at how good the supplies really are! This DIY is using supplies from a few different dollar stores but definitely rings in under $10. It cost me $1.25 because I had everything else at home left over from other dollar store DIYs. Bonus!
I’m sharing this modern dollar store DIY wreath for spring as part of the Seasonal Simplicity Spring Series with some of my blogging friends. You can scroll down to the bottom of this post to see all of their wreaths! They’re so pretty!
Okay, let’s get down to the tutorial!
For this Modern Dollar Store DIY Wreath, you’ll Need:
- 1 Wooden dowel
- 1 Piece faux greenery
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun
- String- either macrame cord OR cotton poultry string (in the cooking section)
- Wooden beads
Okay, so this was pretty simple to make. I started by tying the string to the dowel to create a hanging dowel. You can eyeball how much you want it to hang below your nail/hook. I tied it on and used hot glue to keep those ties in place.
Let’s talk about the string… I ran out of the cotton poultry string that I started this project with (leftover from this macrame DIY) so switched to macrame cord. They are SO similar. Macrame cotton is a bit thicker, but not even by much. So totally grab some of the cotton string from the cooking section next time you’re at the dollar store!
Next, I added the wooden beads. I had made wooden beads from the dollar store into a garland a while back and never ended up using it in my home like I’d planned. I did use it for this party though. The dollar store beads have variance in colour which I didn’t love for table decor but look totally cute in this hanging! Just string them on and tie it on to your dowel.
Next, I added a tassel made from macrame string. You just grab a small book and wrap your string around until it looks like enough. Slide it off and tie off the top, then snip the bottom loops to make a tassel. I hot glued this in place as well.
Lastly, I added the faux greenery. I’m actually so darn impressed with the faux greenery I picked up from Dollarama. Like… it looks pretty freaking good, right?! I just used one piece from the stem, so have a lot leftover I need to brainstorm more DIYs! Use wire cutters to cut your faux greenery to length and then hot glue it on to the dowel.
That’s it! Simple but so pretty! This modern DIY dollar store wreath for spring was really easy to pull together and I’m impressing myself with how good it looks for the price tag.
