If you’re like me, you love a good wreath. They add a pop of color and personality to any door or wall, especially for the seasons and holidays! Almost every door on my house has a wreath!
While doing some research about what my blog shows up for on Google, I found out that my tutorials for using deco mesh to make wreaths were extremely popular!
- Everything There Is To Know About Deco Mesh for Wreath Making
- How To Make A Curly Deco Mesh Wreath
- How To Keep Mesh From Fraying
- Dollar Tree Bunny Wreath | Curled Deco Mesh Wreath
- Dollar Tree Witch Hat Wreath
So, it got me thinking…I needed to make another wreath!
I headed to my local Dollar Tree and scanned their crafting supply sections, looking specifically for deco mesh, aka decorative mesh on the Dollar Tree package. While I hadn’t really planned out what color or style wreath I would make before looking at the craft supplies, I decided that to make a sunflower deco mesh wreath and incorporate a pre-made sign in the center.
Where To Find Wreath Supplies At Dollar Tree
Sometimes it can be a bit tricky to find everything you need to make a deco wreath from Dollar Tree. Because I’ve been making wreaths for so many years, I’ll share with you all of my secrets!
Usually at the front of any Dollar Tree there is a section dedicated to the upcoming holiday or season. For the bigger holidays like Halloween, Christmas and Easter, there are typically craft supplies geared towards those holidays also in this holiday section.
This is where I found my yellow deco mesh for this sunflower wreath.
While Dollar Tree has a great selection of crafting supplies and materials, their supplies are a bit limited to a fully dedicated craft store. ie: the deco mesh from Dollar Tree is only 6″ wide, where many craft stores sell a 6″, 8″, 10″ and 12″ wide deco mesh. But that’s ok, you can still use their mesh for wreath making!
There are typically a few floral sections at Dollar Tree. One being on a wall up front. Two being a tall, vertical display near the sunglasses and registers. Three being in a section towards the back, typically by the picture frames. This is what I call the floral section.
Here you will find circular wire wreath forms, heart forms, 3D wire wreath balls (be sure to check out my tutorial for How To Assemble A Dollar Tree 3D Wreath Form), floral tape and more!
Household Tools/ Automotive Section
I know! You might be thinking I have a typo, but nope! I’m serious! In the automotive section, I buy small nylon cable ties (I call them zip ties). These work out extremely well for making wreaths and can be used in place of pipe cleaners.
Alright, now that you know where to buy all of your wreath making supplies, let’s get this show on the road and make a wreath!
Supplies Needed To Make A Flower Deco Mesh Wreath
- 1 – 14″ wire wreath form
- 3 – 6″ rolls of yellow decorative mesh
- 1 – 6″ roll of green decorative mesh
- 1 – package nylon cable ties (size small) (aka zip ties)

How To Make A Sunflower Decorative Mesh Wreath Video Tutorial
I went live in my DIY & Craft Inspiration and Support Facebook group (I would love to have you join!) and showed you how to make the wreath step-by-step. I recorded the tutorial, so you can watch the replay, pause and skip forward where you need!
Cutting The Zip Ties
Once you have added all of the wreath petals, it’s time to flip the wreath over and cut off all of the zip tie tails.
Painting The Center Wreath Sign
I decided that I didn’t want my sign to say “Give Thanks” so I used my favorite paint, Dixie Belle paint, to give it a refresh! I used Serenity and Endless Shore to paint over the wording. I then used a Sharpie permanent marker to write by hand the word “Welcome”.
