You can make this awesome Dollar Store DIY Halloween Wreath for less than $2!
When my sister Jill was visiting a few weeks ago we worked on some crafty Halloween decorations and this was something she put together. The two of us have always enjoyed making things and being creative but my sister is especially resourceful in using items one wouldn't even think of. Since a lot of the items to make this were on hand the cost to make it was less than $2! Can't beat that plus it looks really cool!
- black garbage bag – cut into 1-2 inch strips
- plastic shopping bags
- some strong cardboard
- construction paper
- craft moss from the dollar store
- plastic centipedes from the dollar store
- craft glue
- adhesive tape
- sharp scissors
- hot glue gun and stick
- black marker
Here's how it was done:
To make the wreath shape, a hole was cut into a circular piece of cardboard we had on hand.
Then the sides of the wreath shape were puffed up by wrapping some plastic shopping bags around the circle and securing it with tape. It should be puffed up just enough to give it a bit of a shape.
The next steps were very easy. The strips of the black garbage bag were then wrapped around the wreath ring and secured with tape. They were placed in a way that made them appear slightly ruffled.
Next, craft glue was used to place some of the moss on the wreath and the plastic centipedes were secured using the glue gun.
The ‘Happy Halloween' sign was created using the construction paper and written with a plain black marker.
