A Quick Spring Wreath with Dollar Store Supplies!

Hi friends! Are you looking for a fast and fun Spring project? This project can be made quickly and inexpensively using a 10″ wreath form from the dollar tree. You can use this same method to make larger wreaths as well, you just need a bigger Styrofoam wreath form if you want to do that. I recommend that if you are doing this with kids (it would be a great classroom or Sunday School craft) that you stick to the 10″ wreaths because it won’t take as much money, supplies or space to make. Why is Styrofoam so expensive anyway? Probably because it is an ecological nightmare which brings me to the other great thing about this project, it is all put together with straight pins so you can easily undo and redo it as many times as you like so you can keep reusing it season after season and not feel bad for your Styrofoam consumption.

I mention the wreath size because you are not going to gain a lot of bulk on this wreath. This is the same size form I used for my Christmas bauble wreath (glue method) but that one ends up being much larger because you are adding chunky ornaments all around it. This wreath pretty much ends u the size of the form so if you want a door size wreath you will want it bigger. Just measure before you buy:)

Full instructions in today’s video!

You can find most of the supplies you need at the dollar tree and you can order online and have it shipped for free to your nearest store. This is handy because my store often runs out of the good stuff:) You must buy 4 wreath forms if ordering online though so you might try my Christmas Bauble wreath or split the order with friends or make some to sell at a craft fair! It is still cheaper than one wreath form at the craft store! Look at your own craft stash to see what you have that will work on a spring wreath before buying new, if you need supplies I have shopped around and found decent prices on the basics.

Be creative and use the supplies you have on hand to make your wreath fun and unique! I hope spring has spring in your part of the world, we are just starting to get a peek of it in Maine! Today is supposed to be sunny and 63 so I think I will try to enjoy part of my day outside! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  2. I never used a styrofoam wreath body …. here in Germany you can get them made of straw or (even nicer) willow twigs. The willow ones are so pretty you don’t even have to cover up the twigs. The straw bodies are easier to use because you can stick needles into them like with the styrofoam bodies.

    I wonder if you could get them in the States too … or maybe even make them yourself.

    What I love about your video is that it didn’t take much time to make your wreath and I bet I have all I need if I rummage through my boxes. Far better than going shopping with a long compicated list of stuff and not finding half of it! You show us how to create with what we have!

  5. I like this wreath a lot, very cute. Lindsay I have a craft idea for you. Have you noticed the cute decorated paper clips people are using for art and Bible art journaling? They are very expensive to buy, could you do a video using dollar store products, and then we could make them ourself. Thank you.
