Punxsutawney Phil may have seen his shadow this year and most of us still have snow on the ground, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to Spring and get our home ready for some warmer days.
If you are like me and update your home’s entrance every season with a new wreath, or with different wreaths during the same season depending on holidays thrown in there, then you know that one of the best places to buy wreath making supplies is at the Dollar Tree store.
For around $10 you can make a very inexpensive seasonal or holiday wreath. One that you can use again or change out the items on it inexpensively the next year. Or, one that you won’t mind donating after the holiday because you don’t have a lot of money or time invested in the wreath.
Mostly though, you are going to end up with a very nice looking wreath with items from Dollar Tree that did not break the budget.
Spring Succulent Wreath with Mini Clay Pots.
For a new Spring themed wreath this year, I decided to go with succulents instead of flowers with accents of miniature clay pots. All of which I was able to find at my local Dollar Tree including the wreath form and burlap ribbon.
The first thing I did was to dry brush white acrylic paint on the miniature clay pots to give them an aged looked.
Since I was able to find these great faux succulents with a metal clip on the bottom, I purchased a wire wreath form to attached the clip-on style succulents to the wreath. Or at least that was the plan. In the end, the faux succulents were a bit too heavy and I still had to add hot glue to the faux succulents to keep them from falling off the wreath or coming apart. They still look nice though on the finished project.
I wrapped a spool of burlap ribbon around the wire wreath form to hide the wire rings and to give the spanish moss something to attach to with the hot glue.
After a foundation of burlap ribbon and Spanish moss, it was very easy to attach the mini clay pots and the succulents using hot glue or the clips on the back of the succulents.
Since the items on this wreath were a bit heavier than I usually use, I hung the wreath up in my craft room for a few days to see if anything fell off. Thankfully nothing did. However, the wreath still needed a little something added to it to make it look complete.
So I headed back to the Dollar Tree store and purchased two rolls of burlap ribbon to make a double bow for the top of the wreath in dark green and natural burlap.
The mini clay pots are stuffed with Spanish moss to hide the inside of the pots since the succulents were so much bigger than the mini pots. Plus it just made the whole wreath look cohesive and pulled together.
I think for the summer months I will make a flip flop wreath from Dollar Tree items.
