I love shopping at Dollar Tree for inexpensive craft supplies! (If you do, too, you might enjoy my post on the Ten Best Craft Supplies to Buy at Dollar Tree!) On a recent trip, I picked up supplies to make a fall wreath for my back door, including some of their fall leaf garlands. I also grabbed a silver tray from their entertaining and party supply aisle.
Dollar Store Silver Tray Wreath
I decided to turn this tray into the base of my fall wreath! Once I got it home, I painted the center of the tray with chalkboard paint.
Then I worked on "antique-ing" the remaining silver part of the tray with other colors of acrylic paint. I wanted it to be less shiny and more vintage!
After all of the paint dried, I cut apart the leaf garland and hot glued leaves to the front.
I attached a ribbon to the back of the tray with sticky hooks, and then I used chalk to write a friendly greeting on my chalkboard wreath. (I tried to write "fancy" but probably need some more practice! :-) )
When that was finished, I hot glued the ribbon down the front of the wreath. Then I hung my wreath on my back door. It is the perfect size for my little porch!
