I went to Dollar Tree over the weekend. Oh My Goodness! The Halloween section was full of orange, black, and purple sparkles, and the Thanksgiving supplies loaded every shelf at the ends of the isles. The Dollar Tree Christmas sections was loaded with glitter and foil.
It’s that time of year where three major holidays converge to create colorful displays of fun supplies for fall and winter craft and home projects.

Meet Your Hosts
They have all been busy as Elves creating, decorating, cooking and crafting tons of new ideas for you to try this holiday season!
The Dollar Tree Christmas section has a wall all of it’s own. It is a gorgeous display of ornaments, decorations, craft supplies, and floral picks.
There were already some empty pegs indicating that some items had already sold out. I’m not surprised though, because the variety and quality of the Dollar Tree Christmas supplies, is top notch.
I can’t wait to show you the Dollar Store Christmas Wreath that I made for $6.00. What a steal!
I had a really difficult time choosing my supplies. I wanted to make a wreath, but there are so many beautiful ornaments that I could add to it. At first I chose the white glittery church Christmas ornaments. Then I spotted the gold musical instruments, and I fell in love with the glitter and pearl stars.
I finally had to make a decision and walk away. With all of the gorgeous ornaments, you could decorate an entire designer looking Christmas Tree on a small budget.
After choosing the ornaments, then I had to select greenery and flowers. That was a little easier, since I had narrowed down the color choices.
Supplies Needed For Dollar Tree Christmas Wreath
- Two 16.5″ Christmas Wreaths
- Two Gold Reindeer Christmas Ornaments
- One poinsettia floral pick
- One gold glitter floral pick
- Bow or ribbon to make a bow
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Green floral wire or tinsel pipe cleaners
If you’ve never made a wreath, you may think it’s an intimidating project, but it’s really pretty easy.
You will see in the video that it took me less than 10 minutes from start to finish. Here are a few tips for making this Dollar Tree Christmas Wreath.
- I used 2 wreaths wired together. One wreath by itself was a little thin.
- Place your items around the wreath before attaching anything. That will give you an idea of where you want them.
- Add green wire or tinsel pipe cleaners to the things that can’t be glued. The reindeer had holes in them so I was able to wire them to the wreath. Hot glue would have worked temporarily, but they wouldn’t stay in the position that I wanted and would fall off after a short period of time.
- Cut the floral picks down into smaller branches.
Here’s a close up of the beautiful reindeer. He’s really handsome for a $1.00. Unless you pick it up, you don’t realize that the base is plastic. I saw similar Christmas ornaments for $4.00 with a short walk of Dollar Tree. I prefer plastic ornaments for making wreaths. They are so much easier to work with.
Now that you see how easy it is to make a Christmas Wreath using Dollar Store supplies, I hope you’ll give it a try. I bet you can’t make just one!
