I have been procrastinating on getting Fall decor up in our house this year. To jumpstart my decorating, I created this pretty fall wreath using faux succulents and leaves from the dollar store. If you are ready to add a touch of autumn to your home, you can make this fall dollar store wreath quickly and cheaply.

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS DOLLAR STORE WREATH
I bought all my supplies for my wreath at the dollar store, but they are supplies you can find at most craft stores or online as well. I especially like to buy faux succulents from the floral section of the dollar store because they are far less expensive than those at the craft store.

TIPS FOR CREATING SIMPLE WREATHS
Making a simple wreath for your front door is one of the most satisfying craft projects you can do! You get all the fun of designing a craft and beautifying your home with it, but you can be done with the whole project in about an hour! These are my best tips for creating simple wreaths:
- Lay out the embellishments you want to use on your wreath before you start gluing to get a rough sense of the final look of the wreath.
- Choose a color palette and stick to it. You can make add as many or as few elements to your wreath as you would like. As long as you stick to your color palette, it won’t look too busy.
- When I make seasonal wreaths like this, I like to use low temp hot glue. That way I can peel the embellishments off after the season is over and reuse them and the wreath form for new projects!
- Have a plan for how you will hang the wreath. If you are using a ribbon or a wide wreath hanger (like I did above), you will need to leave a space to accommodate that hanger.
- Every kind of wreath form has a tool that works best for adding embellishments. For grapevine wreaths, use hot glue. For foam wreaths, use floral pins. And for wire wreaths, use wire.
