!This is one of my very favorite Fall wreaths I have made so far. I know.... every time I make a wreath, I say it's my favorite, but this time I mean it! Check out my tutorial below to make your own Dollar Tree scarecrow wreath!
It's almost my favorite time of year: Fall! I went on a huge Dollar Tree shopping spree this week and bought a ton of stuff to make more craft videos. Check out my tutorial below, showing you how to make an easy Fall deco mesh wreath using all Dollar Tree supplies.
Every now and again I like to step away from making standard-shaped wreaths and create something a bit different to hang on my front door. This Dollar Tree garden trellis door hanger looks like a basket of flowers, and can be made with just a few items.

What You Need:
1 wire form garden trellis piece from Dollar Tree
a roll of 5.5 inch burlap
hot glue gun
hot glue sticks (I only use Gorilla brand. It's designed for indoor/outdoor use.)
How To Make It:
1. Using the wire cutters, cut off the long stakes of metal at the bottom of the trellis that is used to stick it into the ground.
2. Starting at the top of the trellis, right underneath the decorative scroll work, wrap the end of the burlap around the edge, and secure to itself on the back with hot glue.
3. Wrap the burlap around the trellis until you reach the bottom. Secure the end with hot glue. Wrapping the burlap around the frame gives a better support for the flowers.
4. Wrap a bit of ribbon around the top part of the burlap, and then glue on a bow.
5. Use hot glue to secure artificial flowers into the 'basket', then hang on your door!
I'm so happy with how this terracotta pot succulent wreath came out! I was wanting something that was 'outdoorsy', and this came out exactly how I wanted. It is so easy and inexpensive to put together, yet looks just as good as some I've seen in higher-priced department stores. The majority of my supplies came from the Dollar Tree.

What You Need:
a 14" wire wreath frame
7 terracotta pots from the Dollar Tree (they come in one size, in a 3-pack)
7 small terracotta pots from WalMart (the $0.38 ones)
ivory chalk paint
2 paint brushes
a few paper towels, dampened with water
a spool of floral wire
2 bags of craft moss (Dollar Tree only carries one size)
hot glue gun
Gorilla brand hot glue sticks (my favorite)
a spray bottle of water
a large bowl
How To Make It:
1. First, you need to remove any labels from your terracotta pots. Using one of the paint brushes, sparsely paint the pots with the chalk paint. Don't put on a thick coat. You still want some of the pot to be showing.
2. While the chalk paint is still wet, use the damp paper towels to wipe off excess paint, and smear it around a bit to give it an 'aged' look. Use the dry brush that you haven't painted with to brush away any little particles the paper towel may leave behind.
3. Once the pots are dry, cut a length of floral wire, and run in down through the top of the pot, through the hole in the bottom.
4. Flip your wreath form over so it is backwards from the way you would usually attach mesh or ribbon, and attach the pots to the frame. I alternated big pots and little pots.
5. Your wreath should look something like this now.
6. Put your floral moss in the bowl, and break it apart a little. Lightly spray it with water to help it hold together while you work with it, and to keep any little particles from flying around in the air.
7. Using the hot glue, attach the moss to the sides of the pots, then press it down in between them to help hold it in place.
8. Remove the succulents from their plastic pots, and using a knife, remove the styrofoam.
9. Place the styrofoam in the big terracotta pots, and then hotglue some moss on top.
10. Put the succulents in the big pots, adding a little hot glue to their stems before putting them in.
11. Glue some moss in the little terracotta pots, and you're done!
