It’s time for another Pinterest Challenge! If you aren’t familiar with the Pinterest Challenge, it’s a monthly event that challenges us to not just be pin hoarders, but to make it happen! Last month, I tried out a chicken recipe from my chicken recipe board and this month, I’m dong a craft! My February Pinterest Challenge was inspired by the many garland wreath tutorials on Pinterest. Most of the time garland wreaths are made during the Christmas and New Year Seasons, but I thought it would be fun to make a $5 Dollar Tree St. Patrick’s Day Garland Wreath (video tutorial at the end).
$5 Dollar Tree St. Patrick’s Day Garland Wreath
Most of the supplies to make this wreath came from my local Dollar Tree and only took about 20 minutes to make. Not counting basic craft supplies, I actually only spent $3.50 on this wreath. The gold garland was an after clearance buy at 50 cents, the green clover garland, cardboard clover, and the wire form were each a dollar.
- 2 – 9 ft. garlands (I used one gold garland and one green garland with gold clovers from the Dollar Tree)
- 1 – 14″ Dollar Tree metal wreath form
- hot glue gun/glue sticks
- optional- St. Patrick’s Day cardboard wall hanging and ribbon (Dollar Tree)

How to (video below):
Most garland wreaths have the garland wrapping around the entire wreath form. This takes a lot of garlands when using inexpensive and less full garlands from the Dollar Tree (up to 5 garlands), which can add to the cost. To fix this, I decided to use the wreath wires as my guide and glue the garlands onto them. Doing it this way, I only had to use two garlands!
- Add glue to the inner circle of the wire wreath in small sections.
- Press the gold garland onto the glue.
- Continue adding glue and the garland until the entire inner ring is filled and cut off the excess.
- If you want the wreath all one color, cover the entire wreath with the same color garland.
- For a two-tone wreath, add the green garland to the next two wire rings of the wreath form.
- For the last and outside ring of the wreath, add the gold garland.
Tip 1: Use the cardboard tag from the garland to keep the garlands separated by inserting it between the wire rings (see image).
Tip 2: Use garlands with pop out items on the inner wreath.
- The first image shows the wreath with the garlands glued to the wire wreath form. The gold clovers are just hanging and looks messy.
- To clean up the look, add a dab of glue to the center of each gold clover and randomly press down onto the middle portion of the wreath.
- Stop here or continue on.
- For a bit more pizzazz, I added a large cardboard clover to the center of the wreath. I cut the inside portion of a wall hanging from the Dollar Tree and tied it to hang on the inside the wreath. I’ll be using the remaining portions to decorate other areas of my home.
Now, the wreath is ready to hang or it can be embellished more! It’s totally up to you! So have fun and make your own St. Patrick’s Day Garland Wreath!

Oh I love this! I have been trying to decide on a wreath to make for St. Patty’s and I may have to swing by the Dollar Tree now! Pinned and hopefully not hoarded. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Gwen. It definitely brightens up our front door for March.
How stinkin’ cute is that!?!?! I love it and that it only cost $5 to make. My kind of craft! I am a sucker for clearance items like a few of the ones you used. I always think they can be used for something else down the road. Pinning to share!
Thanks Lisa. It actually cost about half of that since I got the gold garland for 50 cents. It’s always great to shop the dollar stores for seasonal clearance items.
I love making my own wreaths! What a cute idea! Pinned!
I’m a wreath maker too. So much cheaper than spending $50 – $100+ for a premade one. Thanks for visiting and pinning.
What a fun wreath for St. Patrick’s day! Thanks for all the helpful tips. I never would have though to keep the garland away from the glue with cardboard, but that totally make sense.
What a pretty and affordable St. Patricks Day wreath! Glad you included the tip with the cardboard to keep the tinsel out of the glue! I would have been pulling out every step of the way! LOL!
Love your video and especially the tip to use the cardboard between each one to control the hot glue. I have a design in mind for a garland inspired by this one! Yay! Thanks for hosting this challenge. I hope you are feeling better.
Love this! Such a bright and bold addition to your decor, and who hates pretty things made on the cheap?? Pinned!
You are inspiring me to decorate a little more than what I do for St Patricks Day. This wreath is too cute and so festive.
Erlene, this is so beautiful! I love how simple your tutorial is too! Pinning to share 🙂
That is adorable! It sounds so nice and easy to make too. Pinned.
Love this festive and cute wreath. It’s the perfect type craft for this holiday because it comes and goes so quickly! Pinning!!

This wreath is super cute, easy and cheap to make. I love it! The sign matches perfectly. The dollar tree always has good stuff. #PinterestChallenge
I love using items from the dollar store for wreaths! Your St. Patrick’s Day wreath is fun! The cardboard shamrock in the center gives it more dimension and is a great addition. Pinning to my St. Patrick’s Day Board. Thanks for putting the Pinterest Challenge together, Erlene! I’m enjoying it!
