DIY “Home Sweet Home” Sunflower Wreath!

With the COVID-19 pandemic in full swing, I’ve had to get creative by up-cycling things I have accumulated around the house, in order to avoid shopping in public.

This wreath was made entirely out of DollarTree items that I purchased last year and happened to have on hand. However, these items tend to be seasonal staples that DollarTree seems to carry each year, (i.e. the faux sunflowers).

Here’s a list of the supplies I used:

  • A large, round, silver, plastic serving tray
  • DT “Home Sweet Home” placemat (This was the one item I purchased at DT this year, back before the pandemic hit. So I believe they’re still carrying it.)
  • A spool of DT lace and burlap look, 3″ wired ribbon (could be any, wide, wired ribbon because it doesn’t really show, it’s what’s used to glue the flowers on.)
  • Other faux flower stems (I used some periwinkle colored asters, faux sprigs of babies breath and green berries.)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • A small piece of wire (even a twisty tie) to hang the wreath up with.)

Since I was making this project by using things I already had in my possession, I unfortunately didn’t have a spare wreath form. So I used an old silver, plastic serving tray from DT instead.

First, I cut just outside the “Home Sweet Home” design on the placemat so that it would now kind of be a circle.

Next, I hot glued the “Home Sweet Home” circle onto the plastic silver platter for stability.

Then, I cut the faux silver platter into a circle that was a hair larger than the “Home Sweet Home” design on the DT placemat.

Next, I glued and pleated the wired ribbon along the edge of the platter.

Lastly, I hot glued the flowers on in a way that was pleasing to me and I added a small wire to the back of the top so that I could hang it up.

Super easy and satisfying!

I'm a mommy/wife living an artsy life! When I have a little spare time on my hands, I'm either creating art designs that I sell on products in my online shop or I'm "Faux Renovating" our home by mainly using painting techniques. I also handmake most of the decor in my home by upcycling things I have laying around into new Farmhouse Style Decor! It's frugal and so fun!
