DOILY WREATH

Changing out my seasonal decor is one of my favourite things, especially wreaths like these DIY Dollar Store Wreaths for Every Season. But then you have to put everything away and store it all. My favourite activity quickly becomes my least favourite activity.

That’s why multi-functional seasonal projects make me so happy. You only have to store one item, but you get to enjoy it through multiple holidays or seasons. This doily wreath is the perfect base for changing out your seasonal decorating. You could do something as easy as change out the bow and instantly have decor for the next season.

Supplies to make this doily wreath

Paper doilies purchase them at the dollar store or order in bulk online
Foam wreath form
Pen or another pointed object
Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
(optional) burlap bow and long pins
How many paper doilies do I need? Well, it depends on the size of your foam wreath form and how closely you space your doilies. For reference, I used about 150 paper doilies to cover a 9-inch round foam wreath form.

HOW TO MAKE A SIMPLE DOILY WREATH

First, start by poking shallow holes in the foam wreath form, evenly spaced about an inch apart, all the way around.
Next, fold your paper doilies into eighths, and pinch the folded point.

Working in batches of 4-5 doilies, begin adding hot glue to the holes in the wreath form. Use a pen or other pointed object to push the folded doily into the wreath form. Repeat this process until wreath is covered.

I used a retractable pen that was “unclicked.” I folded the doily around the pen and then used the pen to push the doily into the foam. Once I got going, the process actually went pretty quickly.

Finally, go back and fill in any gaps or holes that may remain.

Tie burlap into a bow. Add the bow to the wreath and secure with long pins.

I opted to add a burlap bow to my wreath. You could easily add any color or style of bow, depending on the season and your decor. If you swap out bows or add different styles of decorations, this wreath will last through the seasons and holidays all year long!
