Advent Wreath made with Dollar Tree items

I went to the Dollar Tree and picked up some supplies to make a very simple advent wreath.

The pottery platter was a wedding gift, so we’ve had it for many years–17, to be exact! Where does the time go?

Anyway, I got a wire wreath frame, wrapped it in some wide green ribbon, and then added the “pearls branches” on top. Then I simply placed the candle holders and candles in the centre.

Dollar tree items are $1.50 now, and I grabbed 9 items in total:

4 candle holders
2 packages of candles (2 candles in each)
1 wire frame
1 green ribbon spool
1 branch/pearl thing

So the whole thing cost $15.30, including taxes, which was a lot less expensive than anything I saw for sale online (and I hadn’t seen anything in local stores)

Overall I’m happy with the effect. If it ever stops raining in December (???) and I can find non-soggy fresh items, the hope is to add some real greenery into the open spaces of the wreath (and some red berries if I get lucky).


I really like the colours you used! Some fresh greenery would be a nice touch, if the weather cooperates.

Lovely! My sister always does an advent wreath for the sideboard in their dining room. Love that you were able to source everything so inexpensively. Fresh greenery would add a beautiful touch… and would smell wonderful!
