How to Make a Unique Dollar Store Mother’s Day Wreath

  • Start by attaching the tray using florist wire, bind wire or pipe cleaners. Remember, the idea with this wreath is that all items can be removed and used.
  • Next, add the two tea towels. I first added a bit of hot glue to one of the tags and placed the other towel tag on top of it to attach the two together. Then, attach the towels to the wreath using wire through the tag hanger.
  • The plastic wine glass and margarita glass can be added to the bottom of the wreath using wire to wrap around the stems to the wreath.
  • Now it’s time to add the bow. I made my Funky Bow using several ribbons that coordinate nicely with my color scheme and attached it to the wreath using florist wire.
  • Continue adding items to fill in your wreath. I attached items either with wire or a bit of hot glue where it could be removed.
  • Cut apart your flower bushes so you have individual stems. Attach them where you have empty space in your wreath using hot glue.
  • Lastly, cut pieces of greenery ( I used silk ivy) and hot glue in any empty space that remains.

    You are by far so talented and creative?. I have not made a wreath in a very long time. This is so clever and I love how down to earth you make me feel when I watch your videos. Thank you for always sharing! God bless Diana

    • Julie Siomacco on April 16, 2018 at 8:12 am

      Thank you!

      • Thelma Nicholls on April 16, 2018 at 11:13 am

        Dont think I’m feeling this one. As with anything you do, the technique can be adjusted to fit something else and in this case the tray could be a sign, then flowers or small ornaments but as is? I don’t like it.

      • Kim on April 24, 2019 at 3:21 pm

        So pretty

    • Susan on April 16, 2018 at 10:07 am

      It’s okay, but it’s not one I would put on my door. But if you like it, that’s all that matters. But you have made some beautiful wreaths.

  2. Kathy Musser on April 16, 2018 at 9:23 am

    I love this idea…..not so much loving the result. You’re a great teacher and to listen and follow you is a great joy. As I said I think this idea is great but not sure how I would have changed it to make it turn out better. It’s not a FAIL but maybe a MISS in my book.

  3. Tammy Burns on April 16, 2018 at 9:25 am

    I think this is really cute and could be done with a beach theme or cabin themed if the mom has a vacation home..So many ways to personalize this ..You are so talented I love watching everything you do and Thank you so much for all of your inspiration

  4. Pam Harrison on April 16, 2018 at 9:33 am

    Your creativity always amazes me! Great idea!

  5. Melody Dow on April 16, 2018 at 9:41 am

    Since you asked for my input here goes and this is by no means a put down just giving my opinion. I love the creative side of this and what a clever idea, your items do match but in the end I feel if you had mad it look like more like a wreath verse a pile of dollar tree items It would have turned out better

  6. Rene Hughes on April 16, 2018 at 9:42 am

    I watch you make some of this wreath live . Personally not for me but appreciate you thinking out of the box for us . Yes I think could make us use it for other things .

  7. Bonita Velasco on April 16, 2018 at 9:49 am

    I thought this was really cute. It’s not your everyday wreath and it is certainly out of the box and that is what I love about it.

  8. Betty Barnes on April 16, 2018 at 9:54 am

    I really liked it something different

  9. Valerie Morris on April 16, 2018 at 9:59 am

    Hey Julie! I actually made this for a giveaway at a ladies weekend retreat and it was a big hit!!! I had so much fun making it and it was so easy and it didn’t cost me an arm and a leg. Everyone loves a doorprize! I wrapped it in clear plastic and put a beautiful matching bow on ..,and it looked amazing! The lady who won it was so excited!!!! Thankyou for the idea!!!!

    • Valerie Morris on April 16, 2018 at 10:01 am

      Oh I forgot to mention……the title of the retreat was Let’s Flamingle!!!?

  10. Ellen on April 16, 2018 at 10:05 am

    Julie, the wreath is very creative and really cute. Out of all your wreaths, it’s not my favorite but it’s still very cute. Everyone’s taste is different and there’s nothing wrong with it. Example, something with pink flamingos has to fit in a certain persons personality so, this wreath is one of those. It’s great to reach out and make something “out of the box” you are fabulous and you are very creative in many ways. This is an example of that. Love you to pieces.

  11. Peggy Solomon on April 16, 2018 at 10:08 am

    Love this!! I love that this is affordable & possible for anyone to make. Any mother would love getting something like this. Would be great to change it up for a housewarming gift or for a newborn baby gift. Endless possibilities.

  12. Nancy Cogdill on April 16, 2018 at 10:13 am

    Julie, Everyone has their own opinion. I always learn so much from your teachings. You always have a method our idea that I can apply to my wreaths. I have watched a lot of tutorials and some I do not like everything about BUT I always learn from them. Keep on doing everything just like you are doing. Do not get dishearten by critics. You are a very talented young lady and a Christian, you rank very high in my opinion!

  13. Regina Smith on April 16, 2018 at 10:24 am

    This wreath is an “out of the box” type of design. It is not your everyday wreath that you would hang on your door in my opinion. This particular wreath is made to be BROKEN down and the items are to be used for everyday enjoyment (Mother’s Day Gift). Personally I would not hang on my door, but USE the items. That is why this is considered a Mothers Day Gift. Keep an open mind, it is just like the eatable fruit in a flower design or chocolates. Everyone has different opinions and that is ok too. If you did not want on your door, you can just hang on your kitchen wall or USE the items. You could use less or more on this particular wreath design (items you want to give as a gift). There are many possibilities for this kind of style wreath just keep an open mind about it..

  14. Victoria Allen on April 16, 2018 at 10:26 am

    I thought it was very creative and beyond cute! It may not be something I use “as is”, but gave me a lot of ideas to “think outside the box” on something different! I wish my Mother was still here to give her a cute, creative wreath such as this. I love your teaching style, always pointing out what you are thinking and why you think that way AND that you do not have to use the same products that YOU use. I don’t want to make everything exactly like the teacher and all the other students. So thank you for encouraging coloring outside the lines! I loved it!

  15. renee white on April 16, 2018 at 10:34 am

    i enjoyed the live. it was unique and cute

  16. Denice Newman on April 16, 2018 at 10:59 am

    What a great idea. Thank you Julie ?

  17. Carol Brieger on April 16, 2018 at 11:00 am

    Love it! Baby items are a theme I’ll be doing. next. Thanks for the ideas you post.

  18. Candy on April 16, 2018 at 11:02 am

    I would not give this to my mother because it isn’t her style but it is a good idea. Baby shower. Weddings. Any occasions. You always do a great job.

  19. Suzanne Rutledge on April 16, 2018 at 11:09 am

    Looks great,

  20. Claudia Thompson on April 16, 2018 at 11:24 am

    Julie, the wreath was not what I was expecting..but ended up being a lot cuter after you finished…after video finished! I never would have attempted incorporating a tray on a wreath!!I think your purpose to show that you can use inexpensive items for a wreath gift was met.
    Thanks for helping us learn.

  21. Angie on April 16, 2018 at 11:34 am

    I love this wreath. I love all of your wreaths.

  22. Grammiek on April 16, 2018 at 11:42 am

    Omg super cute for any occasion. So many showers and wedding coming up. Thanks

  23. Marcie Bayhi on April 16, 2018 at 11:49 am

    Unfortunately, this is not my cup of tea. While I love the objects used, they’d be better suited for a gift basket for my taste. This is the first time I have not absolutely loved what you have created. Thanks for all that you do for all of us. You are greatly appreciated.

  24. Debbie Moss on April 16, 2018 at 1:22 pm

    Too Neat! Too Cool! Right on Point! You always are so creative! I love this idea! Thank you so much for taking the time to show how this beauty is assembled!

  25. Debbie Kelsey on April 16, 2018 at 1:51 pm

    I love this wreath very different and a wonderful idea!!!

  26. Terry Mane on April 16, 2018 at 1:57 pm

    Julie, I watched your live on this, I was kinda mixed about it, but at the same time I Loved the finished results. My only thought on the whole thing was they pretty much had a bare wreath when they took everything off and might would prefer a pretty wreath to hang somewhere verses a wreath with a bow and a few flowers here and there, that they would only trash if they are not into being creative with the bare wreath. But it did turn out Beautiful in the end.

    • Julie Siomacco on April 16, 2018 at 8:21 pm

      Thanks for your comments.

  27. Rose Paulus on April 16, 2018 at 2:27 pm

    Your creativity amazes me! I would never have thought to put these types of things on a wreath. I think a wreath like this would be a great shower gift (either baby or bridal), and maybe add a note that says… “once all the items have been removed, bring it back to me and I’ll make you a wreath to hang on your door!”

    I’m so glad I found you!!

  28. Terri on April 16, 2018 at 2:42 pm

    Okay. So this is not my favorite of your wreaths. Having said that, I always learn somrething new from watching your videos. This one is no exception. It is also a wonderful springboard to other ideas for my wreathmaking. Thank you so much for sharing your talents!

  29. Terri Warg on April 16, 2018 at 2:51 pm

    After I realized those things are removed, really like it.

  30. debry77 on April 16, 2018 at 3:05 pm

    It isn’t something I would make but I’m fine with that. Maybe someone else would really like it! Just not my style.

  31. Cherryl Sanders on April 16, 2018 at 3:10 pm

    Julie, it’s not my favorite wreath. But good idea to use as something different. I would probably not have used the tray, not sure what I would have used in place of it. Thought it was too large but that’s just my opinion. Good I idea for baby, wedding shower as something new.

  32. Lori Wilkerson on April 16, 2018 at 3:27 pm

    What a great idea to give a gift! May not hang it on my door, but an optional way to ‘package’ a gift for someone.

  33. bev420 on April 16, 2018 at 4:01 pm

    I shared this video to my page, and I am now making one for my niece to give to my sister for Mother’s Day. It is a little difficult to make since I can’t glue, but it truly is a unique idea. Your creativity goes above and beyond.

  34. placzy on April 16, 2018 at 4:16 pm

    Hi Julie, I LOVE the idea. Would you be able to place all of this on top of mesh and have a beautiful bow? Maybe add a few more flowers, or something so they could use the wreath once they had taken everything off? Just curious. I can think of several ways to use it but would hate just leaving them with a bare wreath. Either way, I love watching you, which is why I belong to your club! Thanks for all you show us!

  35. Gail DeAlmo on April 16, 2018 at 5:58 pm

    Julie, I love all your wreaths but this wasn’t one of my favorites. It’s not one I would hang in my home or on my door. It was cute, and I always love your bows, but it seemed the articles would have been cuter if used in a decorated basket, whether for a new home or baby, or Mother’s Day, etc. It would be a unique raffle prize, but one to disassemble after winning. Thanks for all your help, Julie.

    • Julie Siomacco on April 16, 2018 at 8:17 pm

      Yes, it is absolutely meant to disassemble by who receives it. Just a unique way to give a gift.

  36. Linda Belcher on April 16, 2018 at 6:36 pm

    I watch you make this. The idea I think is a great one for a house shower but not for a Mother’s Day one. I think what throws it off for me is the towels it covers up most of the prettiness of if?
    You are very talented n love watching your work and I hope I haven’t offended you in any way lm not meaning to in no way. I liked it as I said just don’t think it would be for Mother’s Day unless it was inspired by a teenager to make for their mother it would ne more appreciated by a younger child making it for Mother’s Day from Girl Scouts etc. it would by all means to me be more loving gift for a mother. From her child. hugs,n prayers.

  37. Mary Mravintz on April 16, 2018 at 9:47 pm

    I enjoyed watching you make the Mothers Day wreath. I might have tried some double sided tape and put a couple things on the tray. Would wired ties have been easier? I might try one. Bi am making one for a fall Chinese auction in September. Where can I post what I made to show you. Again like you said, I am a big girl.

  38. Deb Desrocher on April 16, 2018 at 10:52 pm

    Julie, I love the wreath! I’m all about unique and different and this wreath is one of a kind!
    People need to think outside the box! After watching you make this it gave me idea’s for new creations at work! (I work at ACMoore in the floral dept. and I have freedom to make new items to sell! Loved this idea for Mother’s Day)
    Keep on wreathing!!!
    Deb Desrocher

    • Julie Siomacco on April 17, 2018 at 8:19 am

      Thank you!

  39. Julie T on April 16, 2018 at 11:16 pm

    I adore you and think very highly of you and the items you design. This one though, looks like a HOT mess. I feel like everything is just thrown on (including the kitchen sink, practically). I think if you didn’t add the measuring spoons, measuring cups & the hot plate trivet it might have worked a little better. Maybe just using mostly the outdoor items would have been fine or using the flamingo items and the drinking glasses would have been fine, but in all honesty, this looks horrible and I think you could have shown us something fun & funky and out of the box, without using all these items.

    Again, I love your work, just not this one.

  40. Maura Shurtleff on April 17, 2018 at 6:45 pm

    Hey Julie, To start, I appreciate all you do! If my mom were here, I might do something similar. She would have thought it was fun. I can just see her taking it all apart! She would have had a ball because she loved to entertain, and she was a baker. I think a wreath like that is meant to be taken apart. I am definitely planning to do 2 graduation wreaths. I have a College graduate and a High School graduate. One for each would be fun. I have actually started looking for things. a few gift cards would be a nice add in. Thanks for the fun idea.

  41. Judy Nunnally on April 18, 2018 at 12:09 am

    I think it is an extremely clever way to give a gift. I think it was meant to maybe make us think of other ways to make something different and unusual. I’m not sure everyone understood it should be taken apart after giving it. My mom who is ninety wouldn’t think much of it, but for a younger , outgoing mom who has creative tastes it would be amazing. We will never please every one , every time. I love your work and your spirit. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

  42. Ginger Rohloff on April 19, 2018 at 7:36 pm

    Personally, I loved the colors and the techniques involved when I watched your live. For my eye, which is very inexperienced still, it is too busy. I loved the idea of it and even thought of trying something like it a while ago, but I couldn’t close in on the design I wanted. Please don’t stop showing us different concepts though.

  43. Trudy molero on April 19, 2018 at 9:47 pm

    The Dollar Tree wreath could not b any cuter. It definitely is a winner as far as I’m concerned. I love it ,adorbs..I hd so much fun making it. Mines not as pleasing to eye as yours but I’m going to tweak it more.and I’ll post it. It was so fun to make……

  44. Barbara Zeman on April 27, 2018 at 5:32 pm

    Adorable. Outside of the box. !!!! I saw cute things at Dollar Tree, but could not think of how to put it all together. I like some of the kitchen items for a house warming gift. Maybe with some basil in the cup. I wonder if the tray would work in the back?
