Dollar Store Wreath Tutorial

 

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!

Dollar Store Valentine's Day Craft

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!

SUPPLIES:

Wreath Form or foam board and circular objects to trace and cut out a wreath form of your own

Scissors

Hot Glue Gun and sticks

Rose soaps

Additional Supplies for bouquet:

How to Make a Bouquet

Floral Wire

Round nose pliers

Vase

TUTORIAL:

Wreath form DIY

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.

DIY Rose Wreath

I decided to go in color block sections.  Lay out your design then glue roses onto wreath form with hot glue gun.

Great idea! I used some of these for Valentine’s Day a few years ago. Glad to see they’re still selling them.
