Dollar Tree Country Girl Wreath

Dollar Tree Country Girl Wreath

This craft tutorial shows you how to make a country-themed doll wreath using items from the Dollar Tree store or a similar discount store.


What you need

wire cutters,

cable ties,

craft sticks

Dollar Tree   silk fan

child’s sun hat

child’s pair of socks,

white lace ribbon,

2 stems of flowers

faux hair or wool

Instructions

Start by taking your Dollar tree fans and securing them open, this is done by gluing them across the back or glue a craft stick across the back to stop it from opening.

This country girl wreath tutorial is so easy to follow along. It is made using one single fan but you can use multiple fans to create a tiered dress style.

The next step is to take your sun hat and embellish it with ribbons or flowers, and attach it to the fan.

For extra stability for your Girl wreath, I suggest using a small pizza pan or wreath as a base. This will give it a little more strength.  For the socks, the same thing applies, these socks have been added to the fan, but you can also add a mall amount of filling to give the socks dimension and or some thick card for stability also.  You do not want your country girl wreath flapping bout in the summer breeze.

Don’t forget to add your hair by braiding some wool and gluing it under the hat, You can also add straight hair to your Country fan girl wreath if you like, or curls using cut-offs from a doll wig.

I highly suggest using E600 glue for all of these projects as it is strong and quick drying.

A big thank you to Julie Kaisershot for sharing her photos of this quick summer wreath project.
