I am definitely more of a forest and mountain girl than a beach girl, but there seems to be way more in the way of nautical-themed home decor out there. Let’s change that! I made this pretty dollar store mushroom wreath in less than an hour without spending much money at all. Read on to see how to make your own woodsy wreath this fall.
DOLLAR STORE MUSHROOM WREATH DIY
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THE MUSHROOM WREATH
Usually, Dollar Tree has moss and grapevine wreaths in stock, but my local stores were out of stock (and I checked all three in my area). If they hadn’t been out of stock I would have been able to find everything for this wreath at the dollar store for cheap!

HOW TO ASSEMBLE A FALL FOREST WREATH
The key to making this woodland wreath is layering. Start with your larger embellishments, like the ferns and foam mushrooms, and then layer in the smaller accents.
Dollar Store Mushroom Wreath Instructions
- Pull the fern leaves off of the stems (no wire cutters needed). Layout the greenery and then hot glue it in place.
I chose to create an asymmetrical wreath, but you could place the fern stems symmetrically as well.
- Choose where you want the large foam mushroom to be placed and attach them with hot glue.
The foam mushrooms are cut easily with a serrated knife if you need to cut the back off to get the mushroom to lie flat against the wreath form. You can also poke floral wire into the bottom of the mushroom if you would like it to stand away from the wreath a bit.
- Glue preserved moss to the wreath both in front of and behind the greenery and mushrooms.
Adding the moss all around the other elements will add depth to the wreath’s design and help to disguise some of the hot glue.
- Paint the wooden mushrooms with craft paint. Let them dry fully before gluing them to the wreath.
I personally love the little guy that’s just poking his head out from behind the topmost fern.
- Add a length of green ribbon to the top of the wreath for hanging.
HOW TO USE A MUSHROOM WREATH
I love this woodsy wreath for fall or spring, but since the wreath is made from faux greenery and mushrooms, you can keep the wreath up on your front door all year long! This wreath would also make a beautiful addition to a woodland wedding, bridal shower, or baby shower as well.
