DIY Dollar Tree Christmas Wreath
Oh man, do I love a good Dollar Tree wreath! I recently made this Fall Dollar Tree wreath and thought I would follow it up with a Christmas wreath tutorial for you all. This wreath can be made for under $10 in supplies. I especially love this poinsettia wreath because it incorporates a sweet faux cardinal. One of my favorite birds!

Supplies for Dollar Tree Christmas Wreath
- 18 inch grapevine wreath (get it for $4 at Michaels with 20% off coupon!)
- This is the only non Dollar Tree item used! I tend to like a bigger wreath, and the Dollar Tree typically sells 12″ wreaths. But if you’re ok with a smaller wreath, grab a 12″ grapevine wreath for $1 while you’re at the store!
- 1 poinsettia five stem bush ($1)
- 1 silver glittery fern bush ($1)
- Decorative wood bird house ($1)
- Decorative cardinal ($1)
- Green craft paint
- Small brush
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue
How to Make a Dollar Tree Poinsettia Wreath
Step 1: Paint the wood bird house
If you want, you can paint the wood bird house. I used a pretty Christmas green craft paint for mine. I applied the paint with a small brush. Let dry completely.
Step 2: Clip flowers from stems
Use a pair of wire cutters to clip the poinsettias and glittery fern leaves from their bushes. I leave about an inch of stem left to help attach them to the wreath.
Step 3: Poke poinsettia flowers into base of wreath
Starting with the poinsettias, poke the flowers into the wreath. You can glue in place with hot glue if you want. However, the grapevine does a pretty good job holding them as is!
Step 4: Add silver greenery to sides
Poke a few silvery leaves into the wreath on each side of the poinsettia flowers, with the leaves angled up. Glue in place at the base if you like.
Step 5: Glue bird house to wreath
Use hot glue to attach the bird house to the inside base of the wreath above the poinsettia flowers. Hold in place until the glue is set.
Step 6: Add cardinal to bird house
Remove the metal clip from the bottom of the cardinal by gently pulling it out. Add a dab of hot glue to the base of the cardinal and then attach it to the top of the bird house.
This whole wreath took under 30 minutes to make! The longest step is waiting for the paint on the bird house to dry. Seriously, this is such an easy and cute wreath to make for Christmas. I hope you give it a try!
