DIY Dollar Tree Halloween Craft
Ok. So, I never thought of myself as the crafty type. I have actually been feeling down on myself because I was trying to think of what talents I have. I can’t use a sewing machine even though my mother in law has tried to show me numerous times. So what! I can’t sew. Whoopty doo!
Cooking food is my forte! I come up with recipes on my own without measuring things out and they come out awesome! I love to cook for my family but I have always wanted to be crafty too.
The other day, I was at the dollar store just looking around and saw some pretty cute Halloween ribbons and such that I wanted to create something with.
Guess what? I created something pretty freaking cute! I put together a DIY Dollar Tree Halloween wreath for my front door and it all only took about an hour!
Obviously, you don’t need to make your wreath exactly like mine. This one can just be a guideline for you. Have fun with it and use the colors that call out to you. Halloween to me is always purple, orange, and green. I threw in some black for good measure as well.
The materials I bought are all above in the photo. The dollar tree has the metal wreath frame and all the mesh ribbon you can ever want. I bought a green, orange, and purple mesh wide ribbon and 2 black ribbon with glittery spider webs on it.
There is also a long “straw” looking purple ribbon that I use to tie a bow around each bunched up ribbon which you’ll see below. I call it a straw because it just looks like one. It is hollow in the middle so it goes by “straw” in my brain.
Ok, so with the wreath frame that is pictured above…….there are sections to this frame. On each section, I cut 2 of the purple “straw” ribbon in 20-inch pieces and tie it in a knot around the metal in two separate places, not right next to each other. Do it exactly as I did above. Also, if you can’t find the “straw” ribbon, just use whatever ribbon you like but cut them all into 20-inch pieces. That is the magic number.
Now, you want to get your wide mesh ribbon from the dollar tree and cut them each into 20-inch pieces. Remember the magic number!! Take each 20-inch piece of ribbon and start bunching them as I did above. It looks just like you are pinching the ribbon and holding it together. Hold on to it tight so you don’t need to do this step again.
I do this step with the purple, green, and orange ribbon and put the bunches together. I pinch all of the bunches together and hold it tight.
Remember the “straw” ribbon that you tied into knots? Take your bunches of pinched together ribbon and place it right over the knot and tie a bow around the whole bunch just as above! It kind of ends up looking like butterfly wings. I do this step twice because I tied two of the “straw” ribbon into knots twice! See? I hope I’m not confusing you! It really is super easy. Just take the “wings” and fluff it a bit to make it poof!
I bought some pretty black ribbon from the dollar tree with orange glittery spider webs on it. I also cut these into 20-inch pieces. The magic number again! I take each piece and tie a knot in between each bunched up ribbon. All this does is add a little more pizzaz and flare! It also helps to fill in the gaps a bit and makes it even cuter!
Here is a picture of the ribbon after the knot is tied.
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
Just repeat all of the steps above until you completely finish covering the frame with the bunched up ribbon and the spider web ribbon. When you’re all done, here is the finished product.
There is my super easy DIY Dollar Tree Halloween craft for you to recreate! I love this because it is so versatile! Literally, you can use any color or texture ribbon that you like. All you need is the metal frame which I got from the dollar tree! I only spent about $7 bucks on this craft but I could have bought it somewhere for no less than $30! Score!!
My wreath is currently outside of my front door and I love to look at my hard work! It was so easy to put together and I can use it every year around Halloween!!
Do you have any crafts you put together that was easy and inexpensive? I would like to see in the comments below. Thanks!
