I love making wreaths for all the seasons, and the Dollar Tree stores have a great selection of wreath making supplies to choose from, especially in the Fall. I found this great mesh ribbon for Fall this year and decided to make this adorable wreath with little stuffed owls on it.
DIY Fall Wreath From Dollar Tree Supplies
For this project you will need about 7 rolls of mesh ribbon, a 12" wire wreath form, prepackaged and wired burlap leaves in several different colors, and pipe cleaners and floral wire.
It has been a while since I worked with mesh ribbon so I decided to try something new. I cut up the ribbon in to 8 inch lengths, turned two opposite corners of the cutout together and pinched in the center to create a bow tie. I then twisted a cut length of pipe cleaner around the middle of the bow and attached it directly to the wire wreath form. I repeated this process over and over until the wreath was full.
Since the mesh ribbon is very curly it quickly fills up the wreath form to a very full wreath.
Since the burlap leaves were pre-wired, it was very easy to attach them to the wreath form among the mesh ribbon to add a different texture to the wreath.
The two stuffed owls were easy to attach as well but inserting a floral wire through the back of them and attaching them directly to the wire wreath form. The final result is a very easy and adorable, and very brightly colored Fall wreath.
