How to Make Dollar Store Wreath using a Laundry Basket

Make Time: 15 minutes

Cost: $20-25 

Difficulty Level: Easy – Moderate

Materials Needed:

  • Dollar Store Laundry Basket
  • Spray Paint (optional)
  • 15-20  bunches of flowers
  • Spider Web Decor
  • Floral Wire
  • Electrical Tape or Duct Tape
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue (optional)
  • Floral Protectant Spray

Tools Needed:

  • Scissors
  • Side Cutter


Grab your laundry basket and cut the basket portion away from the top rim.

STEP TWO (optional)

Spray paint the rim black. I didn’t really end up needing to do this because I used so much tape, but you do you.


Using floral wire, attach the spider web to the basket hoop. (Side note: I removed the giant fake spider from the web, but was also debating add some paint and glitter instead.)


Use your trusty side cutters to cut off the tops of the flowers, leaving a few inches of the stem. Just keep cutting because you’re gonna need more than you expect.


Rip lots of strips of tape and tape the crap outta the flowers. Wind the tape around the flowers, around the hoop as much as possible, working around the edge of the hoop. You can even hot glue it in place first then add tape. But seriously, put a lot of tape on there.


Once you’ve placed all the flowers, turn the wreath over and tape the entire back so that everything stays in place.


Finally, spray your wreath with UV Proctor if you plan to hang it outside. It added a bit of a dusty finish to the wreath, but I kind of liked that it looked old a spooky as a result.

    Oh my! This wreath is so awesome. I love those flowers. I’ve been wanting to buy some at the dollar tree for my backyard planters. We’re in a severe drought and everything has died. 🙁

    Pinned your awesome project!
