I used left over petals to make this precious Dollar Tree rose petal wreath!
And I still have enough left over petals to make about 747 more trees and 454 more wreaths.
So this wreath may have cost me about ………..thirty cents.
I was so committed to keeping my supplies below a dollar that I didn’t use a wreath form.
I used supplies that I felt everyone would have on hand.
Here is what you will need.
Not bad is it?
I wouldn’t even use my expensive paper plates. For real?
Start with a cheapie paper plate and cut out a wreath shape and wrap it in tissue paper like this. Save the inside circle of your plates. We will use it later.
The tissue and tape makes it sturdier, so do not worry about using a cheap paper plate.
I like using tissue because I want to make sure the white paper plate doesn’t peep through behind the red flower petals.
After wrapping your plate, you will then start taping your petals around your plate in layers. This took longer than it did on my trees. I was baby sitting our grand-daughter but I also wanted both sides of my wreath covered as well so I took more time with my wreath.
Ready for your next step?
It’s what you saved the inside circle of your plate for.
Take your circle and make a heart!
I spray painted mine with chalk board paint but do not feel like you need you need to run out and buy chalk board paint. Use black sharpie! Black construction paper! Be creative! Go cheap!
It’s from the heart people!
And it’s thinking “outside of the box”.
True LOVE Forever!

Can you BELIEVE how far these petals go?
Have you gotten any petals yet?
Can you BELIEVE how disgusting the bottom of my chairs are?
They aren’t distressed, they are disgusting.
Care to talk to me people?
I would love to hear from you.
Like the wreaths?
