Ok, I will admit, I am pretty proud of this Dollar Store Craft. I made the rose bouquet and wreath from rose soaps I found at Dollar Tree! You get 9 in a package and at one of the Dollar Tree stores near me, I found them 2/$1. It took 12 packages for the wreath and 4 for the bouquet. Not only are these gorgeous, but they smell good too. Just don’t put them outdoors. Rain is not this project’s friend!
The soaps come in white, pink and red, perfect for Valentine’s Day! I plan on making an all white one for year round, since it is just so beautiful!
Wreath Form or foam board and circular objects to trace and cut out a wreath form of your own
Hot Glue Gun and sticks
Additional Supplies for bouquet:
Round nose pliers
For the wreath, cut out your wreath form if you are making one. If you have one, skip this step! I traced a wreath form onto foam board. I wanted a flat surface instead of the dimensional wreath form. Cut out with scissors.
I decided to go in color block sections. Lay out your design then glue roses onto wreath form with hot glue gun.
Hot glue a loop of string on the back and your wreath is ready to hang.
Now for the Bouquet:
Cut wire 8-10 inches or your preferred stem length. Start a loop at one end with your pliers.
Remove wire from pliers and use fingers to continue spiraling as until you get something like the above shot.
Add a dab of hot glue to the base of the flower.
Glue wire spiral onto flower base.
When you have enough flowers, place in a vase and you are set!
