Dollar Store Fall Decorations

Thursday, October 13, 2016

Hello blog friends.  I love when the dollar and craft stores have their supplies available for fall decorating and crafting.  They have items such as pumpkins, fall leaves, faux sunflowers, and pretty ribbon.

I recently went to the Dollar Tree store to pick up some supplies to make an easy fall floral arrangement.  Each item cost only $1, and the total cost was $5 to make.

I'd love to share with you how I made this fun and easy dollar store fall decoration.



2 flower bunches
2  leaves bunches
1 roll of decorative ribbon
1 vase

All supplies available at Dollar Tree stores.

Flower and Leaves

Decorative ribbon


1)  Take your floral arrangement and arrange the way you would like the arrangement to look.  Tape the bottom stems of the arrangement.

2)  Add decorative ribbon to the bottom of the flower stems and make a bow.

3)  Take floral arrangement and place into vase.

4)  Done!  Now you have your pretty fall floral arrangement that cost only a few dollars and minutes to make.  I also added a few pumpkins and now I have a cute fall vignette.

Have you been doing any fall decorating?  

I hope I've inspired you to make your own easy fall decoration, as crafting does not have to be difficult to make or cost a lot!

  6. No decorating yet. I want to though. October has sneaked up on me. It's been a while since I've been in Dollar Tree but I do love to go there when I need quick holiday decorations.
