This craft was contributed by Michelle S. Thanks for sharing your DIY Dollar Tree Wagon Hack with us Michelle.

These wagons are great for seasonal decorating: fill them with pumpkins for fall or wrapped gifts for Christmas time. Adorable as a table centrepiece and so easy to make.

There are lots of different variations fo these craft wagons online at the moment but basically, they are all similar in design.

Make sure you use a good strong glue as you are gluing different materials such as plastic or metal so something durable and versatile like E6000 works really well.

  • Start by painting your wheels, I have seen these done in black and white as well as gold, it really depends on how you want your DIY wagon to look.
  • Paint your handle (spatula) and all the extra pieces to dry.
  • Once dry, paint your main tray part of the wagon: red would be traditional like the Flyer wagons but gold looks really good at Christmas time too.
  • Glue all the pieces of your wagon together and allow to dry before using.


  1. Not meant to be a toy, it’s for decoration only.

  2. The wheels don’t turn so not really toy

    Looks like fun to make and if you use the right things little kids could play with it to ones that are just at the walking age
