Create a dollar store snowflake wreath; one wreath, two versions
It’s so easy to create a dollar store snowflake wreath in less than thirty minutes with dollar store finds.
I have to admit that I’m not a fan of January. It’s actually my least favorite month.
The days are cold and snowy and long… and daylight, while increasing a teensy bit every day, just doesn’t last long enough for this gal.
But like every January that has come before, and probably every January that will come hereafter, I’m trying my best to embrace it.
Last year I created this pink glittery winter wreath to add some cheer to my wintry January.
This week I did that by creating two versions of a quick and easy dollar store snowflake wreath. I did two versions because I couldn’t decide between the two.
So, why not?
I hope it gives you some wintery inspiration.
How to create a quick and easy snowflake wreath
I found these foam snowflakes at the dollar store a couple of years ago, and they’ve been waiting in my stash for a someday project.
I got a package of white, and a package of glittery blue.
They came with perforations that you have to punch out, which was done very easily, to reveal the snowflake.
There are so many designs you could do with these snowflakes, but the one thing to keep in mind is where it will be hanging.
I chose to do a white snowflake wreath for my aqua blue front door.
Assembling a dollar store snowflake wreath
For a frame I’m using a large plastic snowflake that I found at the dollar store this past Christmas.
Using my hot glue gun, I just glued the foam snowflakes onto the frame.
Then I glued on a second layer of snowflakes to fill in the gaps, and make it look more full.
To add some extra glitz to my snowflake wreath, I’m adding small plastic snowflake ornaments that I had in my stash. But I have seen these at the dollar store as well.
I had eight smaller snowflakes, and four larger ones.
Adding small plastic snowflakes
I hot glued all eight of the smaller ones to fill in the middle area.
It’s hard to tell in the photo, but they do have a little clear glitteryness on them.
And the centerpiece of my snowflake wreath is one of the glittery blue foam snowflakes.
I cut out a few pieces to make it a different shape, and so it stands out a little more.
And here’s my finished dollar store snowflake wreath.
I’m super happy with how it turned out.
It only took about 15 minutes, not counting poking out the perforations from the snowflakes.
Hanging your dollar store snowflake wreath
And here it is on my front door.
The large plastic snowflakes come with silver hanging string, so when cutting off the label be careful not to cut the string as well.
The plastic snowflakes in the middle really add some dimension. It kind of looks like a snowflake flower to me.
Supplies needed for this snowflake wreath
- Large plastic snowflake
- foam snowflakes
- small plastic snowflakes
- large plastic snowflakes
- hot glue gun
- hot glue sticks
I loved my white snowflake wreath so much that I made a second one with the glittery blue snowflakes.
It was the exact same process, except I used the four larger plastic snowflakes in the middle.
And here’s my blue snowflake wreath hanging on the guest bedroom door.
The blue snowflakes have a lovely texture to them.
Both these snowflake wreaths make me smile, and seeing them hanging up in my home does make January a little more cheerful.
I hope these easy DIY snowflake wreaths have inspired you to create your own version. There are so many possibilities.
It would be greatly appreciated if you would pin this project to your favorite Pinterest board, and also share it with your friends.
