Entice ghouls and goblins to your door with this simple and inexpensive Dollar Store Hallowe’en wreath! Deco-mesh, a wreath form and some seasonal picks are all you need.
Truthfully, I only like October for the weather – I’m not really a Hallowe’en fan.
We have HUNDREDS of kids come by our house Trick-or-Treating – literally hundreds – and the constant doorbell ringing makes me crazy. I wish all the kids would just come to my house in one massive group (like a rock concert) and I’ll just throw candy in the air until it’s all gone.
Might be fun? Certainly less torturous for me.
But alas – I mean fortunately – I have kids that participate in Hallowe’en, which means I’m a Mom that has to provide a Hallowe’en in return – so today I’m showing you how to make a simple Halloween wreath from dollar store items that will get your house into Hallowe’en mode on a very small budget.
The tutorial for this simple wreath can be found on my Easy Easter Wreath Post – all you need is some deco-mesh from the dollar store, a contrasting ribbon, pipecleaners and a few picks to tuck in.
It’s a matter of cutting down the deco-mesh to roughly 8″ lengths, bundling three pieces together and then twisting a pipe cleaner to hold the little bundles together.
Attach the bundles to a wreath from and that’s it!
I purchased a few picks from the dollar store and this cute top hat – which was actually part of a hairband (that I cut off) – and tucked everything into the deco-mesh.
Because the hat was larger and and is filling the centre of my Halloween wreath, I used a few dabs of hot glue to hold it securely in place.
If you can’t find Hallowe’en picks at your Dollar Store, don’t be afraid to use other seasonal items – everything is easily glued right to the deco-mesh.
I like a bit of an irregular shape on my wreaths – nothing perfectly circular or too compact, so I tucked a few glitter branches in here and there to add some interest.
The overall cost of this Halloween wreath from dollar store items was about $20 (the hat was a bit more expensive, and I needed to buy a small wreath form) – but still an incredible deal given that similar ones will sell for upwards of $75. Better still – it took about an hour of my time to make!
I’m kind of partial to purple – so maybe we’ll have orange this year and then I’ll whip up a purple and lime one for next Hallowe’en?
This can also be used as a centrepiece on a table somewhere – maybe with a black candle in the middle? Check out how it looks as a flat decor piece in the Easter wreath post.
When wreath-making is this easy, this inexpensive and takes so little time, you (I) can easily justify making a few.
You’ve still got lots of time before the big day – impress your kids (and the millions that come to your door) by making your own Halloween wreath from dollar store items today!
Have a great one!
