I was excited to incorporate this Dollar Tree towel into a fall wreath! First I used a pen to trace where I wanted to cut the towel. I made sure to leave room for the towel to be wrapped around the inner ring.
Then I cut the towel out. I turned the towel and wreath form over so I could glue the towel to the wreath form. I put hot glue on the edge of the towel and wrapped it around the inner ring of the wreath.
Once all edges of the towel were glued to the inner ring, I started cutting strips of burlap to wrap around the other rings. I used a piece of burlap that was starting to unravel a bit and wanted it to have a more rustic look. I wrapped the strips around the rest of rings on the wreath. I used hot glue to secure the burlap at the beginning and the end of the wrapping.
I wanted to make a fabric bow to put on the wreath. I already had some fabric strips cut so I gathered those so that there were loops on both ends of the bow. Once I had all that I wanted I used a small piece of brown wire to secure the bow in the middle. and fluffed the bow to get how I wanted it to look. I added a small pinecone in the middle of the bow.
Then I used hot glue to attach the bow to the wreath.
This is a super simple wreath and you could customize it with your favorite towel, burlap, and fabric!! Comment below if you give this a try!

This is a simple Halloween sign, but I love the way it turned out!!
Dollar Tree Wood Halloween Cutout
White Spray Paint
Bow Material: I used black burlap, Halloween ribbon, Spanish moss, and brown wire
Hot Glue Gun & Sticks
I bought this black canvas from Michael’s on sale. It was in a 2 pack for only $2.40! I laid the wood cutout down on the canvas and spray painted it white so that the outline of the wood sign would be on the canvas. It turned out great and has a spooky vibe!
Then I made the bow! I used black burlap strips, ribbons loops, and Spanish moss.
I put three strips of black burlap crisscross on the bottom, then added Spanish moss, and then crisscross loops of the Halloween ribbon. You can put as much material in your bow as you want depending on how full you want it.
Then I gathered the material in the middle and tied a brown wire around the middle.
I covered the middle of the bow with a small piece of black burlap.
Then glue your bow to the top of your canvas sign!!

This yarn is so soft!!! I love it!! The first step I took to make this wreath is wrapped the wire wreath form with this yarn. I did not use any hot glue to cover it. I simply tied the yarn about the wreath and then wrapped it around the form. Once the wreath was totally covered, I tied the end around the wreath and tucked in the tail.
I made this burlap bow out of an oversized bow that I previously got from Home Goods. I disassembled the bow and made this much smaller one. I hot glued the bow onto the wreath.
I got these Americana flowers at Michael’s! I trimmed them with wire cutters and then put them in the wreath around the bow. You can use hot glue to secure the flowers in place.
I hope you give this a try! I would love to see your favorite Americana wreaths!!
Metal Ring for the wreath frame. I got mine from Hobby Lobby, it is in the isle with the macrame items. I used the largest size.
Two Shamrock and Berry garlands, I bought mine from Hobby Lobby
Shamrock Burlap for Decorative Bow
Hot Glue & Hot Glue Gun, this is my amazon affiliate link for the glue gun I use
This is a really easy craft to do. I first laid down the first garland on top of the metal wreath. I then put zip ties to secure the garland to the ring.
Once you have secured the first garland to the wreath, you place the second garland on top. I put the second garland the opposite direction of the first so that the berries would look fuller on the wreath. I zip tied the second garland around the wreath and the first garland. You can adjust the garland and berries after it is all attached.
I then made a bow with shamrock burlap ribbon. I laid various strips of ribbon down and then tied twine in the middle of the pile. I covered the twine with another small strip of ribbon. I then hot glued the two long strips of ribbon to hang on the back of the bow. After the bow is finished, I hot glued the bow to the wreath.
This is what the wreath looked like when it was all finished!
