This quick and easy to make ombre fall wreath using dollar store finds is an easy way to add fall colour to your front entry.
Are you ready for a little bit of fall crafting and decorating inspiration? I’m finally feeling ready for it myself, and this week I picked up several pots of mums for the front porch, switched over my doormat and brought out my fall outdoor pillows. I just need to finish off the fall porch decor by picking up some pumpkins and popping a new wreath on the door. Today’s DIY dollar store wreath project is a super quick and easy way to add a cheerful touch to your front entry for the season ahead.
It always takes me a little while to get into the fall vibe. I think I’m reticent to let go of summer and not always looking forward to the longer stretches of darkness and cooler, wetter days of winter. We’ve been incredibly fortunate this year to have a very beautiful and warm September full of sunshine-y days. Now that October is only a breath away, I’m starting to get ready for Autumn, and have begun to transition the house over with seasonal touches outside.
Creating a cute wreath to adorn our door is always one of my favourite fall crafts. I’ve done a few that I still love over the past several years. These are three of my all-time favourites…

Today I’ve joined some friends who are also getting their home ready for the season and by crafting up a new wreath and sharing it with you today! Be sure to visit their posts by checking out the links at the bottom of today’s article.
How to Make this Wreath
To make this I used a flat MDF wreath form that I picked up at my local Dollarama, as well as a few bouquets of dahlias in warm fall tones, also from the dollar store.
Or you can read below for my step-by-step tutorial for how to make this DIY Wreath from dollar store finds…
I started by removing the flowers from the stems, carefully, so as to keep the floral part intact. Once they had all be removed I sorted by colour and laid them out ready to attach.
Next, I added a generous amount of hot glue on the end of each piece, and then pressed it down onto the MDF wreath form, holding it in place until the glue cooled enough to be set.
Grouping and applying the flowers by colour helped me to create an ombre effect. I continued to work my way around the MDF wreath form, gluing on the flowers, until the form was filled.
Finally, I hung it on the door using a command hook, as it was easy to slide the MDF form over the lip of the hook and hide it with the flower petals!
