Are you looking for Dollar Tree fall wreath ideas?  With just a few supplies from the store and your yard, you can make an amazing wreath.

I love the changing colors during the fall season.  I grew up in Minnesota and we had SO many beautiful fall leaves.  Now that I’m in Colorado we just don’t have nearly the colors other places have and I miss that.  You can preserve the beauty from outside and use it in a craft.  This diy fall wreath will cost almost nothing to make because you are using items just outside your door.

How do you make a simple fall wreath?

Natural Fall Wreath

Go outside and collect some leaves for this DIY Dollar Tree fall wreath.  What makes it better is you are going for a walk and getting exercise while doing it, Have your kids/grandkids get involved – it’s a fun way to get everyone involved!

You can use your leaves as they are or you can preserve them to keep the color.  If you leave them natural they will curl and change color as they dry, but it can be a beautiful and natrual look.  To preserve them you’ll need some Mod Podge and a paint brush.

You’ll need to do this step as soon as possible after collecting the leaves.  This will preserve the color the best.

After Mod Podging the leaves, let them dry completely.

Now for the DIY wreath.  With the exception of the leaves, I used dollar tree items so the total cost was minimal.  Using a grapevine wreath (or wreath form of your choice), start placing your leaves where you would like them to go.

Once you are ready, use a hot glue gun and start gluing your leaves into place.

Once your leaves are in place feel free to incorporate some berries, beads, ribbons a bow or other things if you like.

Keep working around until you get the desired look you want.

Give it time to rest and make sure the hot glue hardens completely before hanging it up.

When you are ready – hang it where ever you want. This is the perfect fall craft to greet guests at the front door.

DIY Dollar Tree Fall Wreath Ideas Q & A

Now fluff your mesh. Widen, unwind, and spread apart each mesh loop to fill out our wreath.

What length do you cut mesh for a wreath?

The length of mesh you should cut for a wreath depends on the size of the wreath frame and the type of mesh you are using. Deco mesh is a popular choice for wreath-making, and the length you cut will vary depending on the style and fullness you want for your wreath.

A common guideline for working with 10-inch wide deco mesh on an average-sized wreath frame (approximately 12-14 inches in diameter) is to cut the mesh into pieces that are around 10-12 inches in length. This length allows you to create fluffy and full wreaths. You’ll need multiple pieces of mesh to cover the entire wreath frame.

However, if you’re making a larger wreath or want a different look, you may cut longer or shorter pieces of mesh. The key is to experiment and see what works best for your specific wreath design. Some people prefer longer pieces for a more open and airy look, while others use shorter pieces for a tighter and denser appearance.

Remember that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer, and it often comes down to personal preference and the specific style you’re aiming for with your wreath project. Feel free to adjust the length of the mesh pieces as needed to achieve the desired result.

 How do you attach mesh to a wreath?

Place the rolled mesh against the wreath frame where you attached the pipe cleaner or floral wire. Use the pipe cleaner or floral wire to secure the rolled mesh to the frame by twisting it around the mesh and the frame together. Make sure it’s tight enough to hold the mesh in place but not so tight that it distorts the mesh.

How many rolls of Dollar Tree mesh do I need for a wreath?

The number of rolls of Dollar Tree mesh you will need for a wreath depends on the size of the wreath, the fullness you desire, and the width and length of the mesh rolls. Dollar Tree mesh typically comes in various widths and lengths, so you’ll need to consider these factors when calculating how much you need.

Here are some general guidelines:

  1. Mesh Width: The most common width for decorative mesh is 10 inches, but it can also come in other widths like 21 inches. The wider the mesh, the fewer rolls you’ll need to cover the wreath because each roll will cover more surface area.
  2. Mesh Length: Mesh rolls from Dollar Tree may vary in length, but they are often around 9-10 feet long.
  3. Wreath Size: The size of your wreath frame is a crucial factor. Smaller wreaths will require less mesh than larger ones.
  4. Desired Fullness: If you want a very full wreath, you’ll need more mesh. For a lighter, airier look, you can get away with using less.

As a rough estimate, if you’re making a standard-sized wreath with a 10-inch-wide mesh roll, you may need anywhere from 2 to 4 rolls to cover the entire wreath frame, depending on the factors mentioned above.

    1. Thanks Stephanie, I’m so glad you like it. I love how fall is so easy to decorate with all of the natural things we have outside 🙂 Hugs back to you my friend!

  3. I love the ease and simplicity of this wreath. Our leaves haven’t changed yet, but the local park down the street has lots of acorns that would also work instead of berries. Then when the leaves turn we could add the color. So pretty.

    1. Thanks Linda, and I’m so jealous you have all of those acorns…. what I would love to make with those. Maybe I should pay you to send a box to me 😉

  4. Ivy Jeranek says:

    Do you mod podge both sides of the leaves?

    1. Hi Ivy, yes that is correct, coat the entire leave with the Mod Podge to seal it.

  5. Terri Sidell says:

    Chas, I liked your idea to coat both sides of the leaf too. I wish I had known about the Mod Podge for coating the leaves, I have tried to preserve many flowers in silica gel, only to fade. I think I will have to try the Mod Podge for that also.

    1. Thanks Terri, and it’s really great for preserving the color. The key is painting it on the leaves while they’re still fresh 🙂
