Dollar Store Christmas Wreath | Gold Leaf Wreath

The other day I went into the dollar store for something else other than wreath supplies, but when I saw all of these pretty and sparkly stems they had, I couldn’t resist. And this new gold leaf Christmas wreath was born.

It’s so easy it’s ridiculous, but oh so shiny and pretty.

So easy in fact that just this picture collage “tutorial” will speak for itself.

And yes those are night photos so they are extra yellowy. Night time is about the only time I have a chance to do things nowadays.

I do want to mention in the #1 box, there’s a pic of 2 wreath forms. Either would work but I think the white kind would be best for this one. I used the white obviously.

And in the #3 box where you can see I decided to use rub ‘n buff so the white wouldn’t stick out, well you can either use that or if you have more time than I did, just spray paint it. Front and back. Don’t wrap it in a fabric or something because then the whole point of this easy wreath is defeated because you wouldn’t be able to just stick the stems down in it like I did. Really took like 10 minutes.

I didn’t use hot glue except for 1 pesky stem that would not stay in place. So have your gun handy but not absolutely necessary.

I think she’s so pretty and could be used for Christmas and even for Fall.

I ended up using about 10 stems total, so the cost of the wreath came out to about $12. Not bad.

I decided her final resting place would be on our entryway mirror.

I just added a dab of hot glue on the back of the wreath and stuck it on the mirror. You could of course not do that and use ribbon. :)

I’m really ready to decorate for Christmas what about you? I’m trying to hold off, but things keep creeping in…

They had several different pretty stems at the dollar store a few days ago so go get some supplies and make a wreath!

Warning: the glitter does get everywhere, so that’s the main reason I decided to hang it on the mirror where people won’t brush by it. :)

xxoo,

Decorchick!

  1. Really pretty!! I love it! Did you find the wreath form at the dollar store too? That’s a pretty good score if so, those things can be spendy! I haven’t decorated for Christmas yet, but the day after Thanksgiving, it’s ON :)

    • Thanks Emily! I already had the wreath forms (I always keep extra), but you can find them at the dollar store too. Usually the green kind. But they are only like $2 at Hobby Lobby if you use a coupon too so not bad at all.

  2. OOOh, yes, I want to visit the Dollar Store soon. We could use a new wreath…might have to stop by Hob Lob, too!

  3. That is a very nice wreath~I love the dollar store and it’s good to know we can still create nice crafting a great price~Love crafting ideas

  4. I am definitely making this! LOVE IT! Sharing on my FB page too. Thank you, I already have everything on hand too!

  5. Love it!!! I think it’s simple but oh so elegant. Will definitely try this ~ :)

  6. So pretty. I’m not usually a big fan of gold (prefer silver) but I love this. I also love that you put it on your mirror. The mixture of silver and gold looks so elegant!

  7. Wow. What dollar store did you find rub and buff? Deal!

  8. i really like it! i haven’t tried using rub ‘n buff at all…makes me want to get one♥

  9. I’m ready to start decorating for Christmas, too! I think there are less days between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, so that’s a good excuse to start early, right? : )

  10. I love this idea! It looks so easy. Thanks for sharing:)

  11. It’s beautiful! I love how easy it is to make. I’m so into “easy” these days! :) Thanx for sharing!

  12. I think the wreath is so pretty and simple. As you said, you could add a bow if you wanted and also if the dollar store only had gold and you wanted to spray another color (silver, bronze, red) you could. So pretty for such a short time to make and low cost too. I love R’n'B and have used it for years – it does last forever and they have such nice colors. It is so fast and easy to use. Thanks for sharing this great wreath idea.

  13. Great idea for a quick simple wreath! Very pretty too!

  14. How wonderful and shiny too! Love it! It looks great against the dark door and with your other metals on the mirror! Aren’t quick, easy and inexpensive crafts fantastic? Hugs, Leena

  15. So pretty! I love it inside the mirror. It looks like it was meant to go there:)

  16. Genius! And oh so beautiful Emily! I love anything that sparkles!

  17. I love it! So pretty and simple! It also looks beautiful on the dark blue door. My door is natural.. I think it’s made from Poplar, I think that’s what they used back then. My house is 120 yrs old. I think it would just blend in with my door. have to think of another look. But it’s beautiful

  18. I really like it! I see it working in a lot of places. Thanks!

  19. Very pretty! I didn’t realize how much fun stuff the dollar store had for Christmas decor until last year. I was totally surprised! I’ve gone once so far this year but I didn’t see anything I had to have. I need to visit the one by my house which seemed better than the one I went to recently. Anyway, I love this wreath and it may make it’s way into my home this year! =]

  20. This is the best looking dollar store wreath I’ve ever seen! Love it placed against the mirror… at Christmastime (or fall!) I’m all about silver and gold!

  21. I know what you mean about only having the evening to work! I Love this idea and will be looking for not only this but other stems for wreaths. And yes Christmas is on my mind too! LOL! Thanks for sharing :)

  22. LIKE easy, and LOVE the wreath. I have always been into gold myself, even when it wasn’t fashionable. Well, I don’t know anything about fashion anyway. Trends come and they go, I just like what I like and I stick to it, LOL! How are you going to get the spot of hot glue (and no doubt some left-behind foam from the wreath form) off the mirror when you remove the wreath? I’m taking a walk to a Family Dollar tomorrow (the nearest actual Dollar Store is too far away for me to get to, as I do not drive) in search of some cheap tea light candles in metal casings — the Walgreens close to where I live where I used to purchase a large amount of such tea light candles for $5 a plastic bag-full no longer carries them. What is this world coming to, I ask you! Burning tea light candles in plastic casings makes me tres nervous. Ach, I wandered off topic. I will definitely be on the lookout for glittery gold floral picks like yours, and maybe the Family Dollar will have a wreath form too, and gold spray paint, as I don’t suppose they carry Rub ‘n Buff.

  23. What a simple and cost effective decoration. I love making our home look all jazzed up for the holidays.

  24. Hi Emily, SOOOO pretty!! Were these gold flowers or did you spray paint them? Would you mind if included a couple of your projects in one my Christmas blog articles??
