How-to make a beautiful Spring wreath with dollar store supplies!

I saw these metal, flower wind chimes at Dollar Tree and I got an idea to transform them into a vibrant and fun Spring wreath!

Supplies I used:

  • A metal wire wreath form 
  • A 3 yard roll of turquoise, wired ribbon
  • 7 metal, flower, bell chimes
  • Floral Wire (I already owned some but they sell that for a dollar at Dollar Tree, too!
  • A small piece of duck tape (I already owned this supply)
  • A pair of pliers
  • A pair of scissors

First, I simply removed the bells and hanging chain with a small pair of pliers.

Next, I wrapped the wreath with a 3 yard roll of turquoise, wired ribbon – from DollarTree. (I highly recommend using ribbon with a wired edge because it made it easier to wrap onto the wreath form.) It took the entire spool. When I reached the end of the roll, I tapped the end of the ribbon to the back of the wreath with a piece of white duck tape that I had on hand.

Then, I began to affix the metal flowers to the ribbon, wrapped, wreath form. I accomplished this by inserting and fastening  floral wire through the pre-existing holes on the flower petals (where the original bells and hanging chain hardware were attached). I fastened this wire directly through the ribbon and to the backside of the wire wreath form (also from the dollar store). Lastly, I tied both wire ends together to make sure that each individual flower was secure and not going to fall off of the wreath.

That’s it! It was a super easy, fun and inexpensive way to make a unique Spring wreath that will soon adorn my front door. This wreath is just bursting with Spring!

I’d love to see your take on the project in the comment section below. 🙂

Thank you for stopping by!
