Let’s face it… I have more wreaths than doors at this point but I LOVE a good wreath DIY! There’s something about decorating a wreath that just makes my heart sing: starting with a plain base and adding little festive touches until the finished product is a gorgeous decoration that’s perfect for displaying during the holidays! Yes, wreath-making is one of my passions! I’ve made quite a few over the years for different holidays but today’s wreath takes the cake! It’s a fun Christmas wreath (made from a picture frame!) that is totally affordable, since all the supplies came from Dollar Tree.

I love that this wreath is rustic (thanks to the burlap along the frame) and nature-inspired (thanks to all the pine cones). All supplies for this wreath came from Dollar Tree. I have been a loyal shopper of the Dollar Tree for so many years. I recently made this gallery wall for Halloween using only Dollar Tree supplies. Did you know that Dollar Tree is the largest single-price-point retailer in America? Yes, there are thousands of stores throughout the 48 contiguous states, where you can benefit from Dollar Tree’s awesome buying power. You can even shop online at DollarTree.com.

Want to make one of these Christmas wreaths for yourself? Here’s what you need (everything can be found at Dollar Tree):

  • 11″x14″ picture frame
  • 3 holly stems (the ones with the pine cones)
  • 3 red poinsettia clips
  • silver glitter bow ornament
  • PEACE ornament
  • burlap ribbon
  • 10-light LED set
  • hot glue & glue gun

Start by taking apart the picture frame. Remove the glass & cardboard backing and set aside. We will only be using the rectangular picture frame for the wreath. I have seen square & rectangular wreaths at home decor stores and they can be quite pricey! However, thanks to Dollar Tree, I can recreate that same high-end look for a fraction of the price.

This wreath can be hung on a wall or door with one nail. This was such an easy project and I love how this turned out! Plus, with supplies from Dollar Tree, this wreath was a very affordable project!
