Today, I am going to teach you how to create a patriotic wreath easily and inexpensively with supplies from the Dollar Tree. This wreath costs only $4 and takes less than 10 minutes to make!
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know I love wreaths, the Dollar Tree, and simple crafts. I have created a new wreath from Dollar Tree supplies for almost every season. Even if I don’t do a ton of decorating for a particular holiday, I always have a wreath on my front door. To me, it is like a special little hello! when we have guests over.

Start by using a little dab of hot glue on the back of the wreath form to secure the garland.
Then, simply start wrapping the garland around the wreath form. You want to keep some tension as you wrap, but you can space it out how every you like. The main objective is to cover the form completely with the garland. I was able to cover my wreath with only 2 strands of garland.
Once you get to the end of the garland, secure it with hot glue on the backside. Continue gluing and wrapping as many strands of garland as you need to cover your wreath form.
Find one of the cross braces of the wreath form.
Use a little bit of hot glue to secure the door hanger to the front of the wreath.
Then, fluff up the garland around the door hanger to cover any exposed areas of the wreath.
I chose not to add a hanger to this one, and simply hang it from my door using a wreath hanger.
I love that this red white and blue wreath can be used for Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day. It was an easy craft that anyone can make. And you definitely can’t beat only $4 for a craft project!
Do you have a wreath for every season, like me?
