My Dollar Store DIY - DIY Polka Dot Burlap & Faux Floral Spring Wreath

I have never been more ready for Spring than in this last week! The flu hit our house [well, mainly me] and I was sick in bed for nearly four days all while my parents, in-laws and sister were here visiting last weekend for my birthday!! I’ll spare you the details, but let’s just say, “Buh-bye, Winter and icky illnesses!! We. want. Spring!” Today I am sharing a very “Springy” project with you guys for February’s edition of the My Dollar Store DIY series! Our theme was general decor, but thought it was the perfect opportunity to make a cute little DIY Burlap and Floral Spring Wreath.

And yep, you already know! The wreath was made from supplies found at Dollar Tree!

It took all of 10 minutes and is as cute as can be!

Last Fall, I made an DIY Autumn Leaf & Berry Wreath, so decided to try my hand at a different version using the same foam wreath form as the base!

Here is what I used for the Spring wreath…

SUPPLIES:

10″ foam wreath ring
faux flowers [2-3 bunches]
burlap ribbon [my Dollar Tree had this cute polka-dot burlap]
hot glue gun
wire cutters

DIRECTIONS:

So, I simply started by securing the end of the burlap to the wreath with a dab of hot glue and then wrapped the burlap around the form overlapping the section before by about 50%. This was to get good coverage and basically hide the green foam from peeking through the holes in the burlap.

Even though the burlap had the polka-dots on it, I didn’t worry about trying to match up any dots or patterns. I kind of liked how it was scattered and sort of resembles leopard print!!

The burlap roll was 3″ x 3 yards and it fit perfectly around the distance of the form, so I secured the edge with my hot glue once I was done wrapping it around.

Next, I clipped about 10 – 12 individual flowers off the 2 bunches with my wire cutters at various lengths, leaving a leaf on about half of them. Then, I slid them under the edge of the burlap alternating sides, so I had varying lengths of floral stems coming from the left and right.

It looked like this…

Since I had picked up a variety of flowers in pinks, purples and magenta, I decided to snip 3 large flowers off just under where the petals were connected to the stem and hot glued them to the center of the wreath, one by one. In doing this, I was able to add another flower element and also cover up the area where all of the stems were intersecting under the burlap on the front of the wreath.

I meant it when I said it was SIMPLE! It is a small wreath, so can be hung just about anywhere!

You can see the wreath I made in the Fall attached to the back of one of our dining chairs in my Fall Tablescape post. I just inserted a couple of push-pins into the upholstery to secure the ribbon and keep it from moving.

*Bonus tip: You can pick-up faux flowers at Dollar Tree, Michaels or Hobby Lobby and mix them in with your fresh flowers to make a beautiful [& affordable!] arrangement. You can see an example of a faux and fresh flower mix I arranged for the centerpiece on my island in my recent Kitchen Revamp Reveal! Did you catch it? Our late drab and dreary 90’s oak kitchen transformed into a Bright, White & Bold space we all now LOVE!

What about you? Are you a front door Spring wreath kind of person? Do you keep a wreath on your door year-round?!

Don’t forget to pin for later!
