Decorating for Halloween is always a favorite for me. I love using simple supplies and creating cute and fun decorations to fit into my home and decor routine. This simple dollar store happy Halloween wreath is so easy to make, affordable, and looks great on your front door celebrating the spooky season. I know you'll love taking an ordinary wreath form and turning it into a cute decoration in just a few minutes.
Dollar Store Happy Halloween Wreath
When I am looking at creating something new for any holiday, I always look at what I can use that is already on hand or at least low cost. Going to my local Dollar Tree or Dollar General is a weekly occurrence since I often find inspiration and supplies at these stores for relatively cheap. This project includes items I found at my local Dollar Tree and is a wreath you can make for just $5 and change!

Where Can I Find These Supplies?
If you don't have a Dollar Tree nearby, you can look online at the Dollar Tree website for some of these supplies. Do know that most of the online options are by the case, so it may be more affordable for you to go by looking in-store at a different craft store.
I like using the Dollar General, Family Dollar, and 99¢ stores as well a Dollar Tree. Of course, most of these items are also readily available at your local Walmart or Target. I also frequent Michael's for craft supplies, and you can use Hobby Lobby if you prefer. Just because I look for the budget options doesn't mean you can't splurge on pricier additions or unique options if you prefer.
If you are shopping at dollar stores for craft supplies, then you might also appreciate these DIY Halloween plates made with dollar store supplies. I love these, along with these spooky bat paper lanterns because both are super easy to make and use supplies you can buy at any dollar store.
Can I Use Different Colors For My Wreath?
Yes! I do prefer the look of using black flowers for Halloween, but the burlap ribbon you choose can be any color or pattern that fits the Halloween theme. Remember, Halloween is usually decorated with orange, black, purple, green, and red in various shades. That doesn't mean you can only decorate with those colors, but they are easier to find and look great along with other purchased Halloween decor.
Where Should I Hang This Halloween Wreath?
This is ideal for your front door, but you can hang it in other places around your home to create a simple and cute look. Halloween is one of those holidays where you can add decor all over your home. This wreath looks great propped against your mantle next to other Halloween decorations. You can also add it in the center of the table as part of your centerpiece, on bookshelves around the room, on walls, or even hanging on windows!
