During a pre-Christmas trip to my local Dollar Tree, I came across these Miniature Artificial Christmas Trees. I wasn’t exactly sure what DIY Christmas decorations I was going to make with them at first but I tossed a couple in my basket anyway. Inspiration hit when an ad for a snowflake wreath came across my feed. That’s it!! I headed back to the dollar store and grabbed some more mini trees to make this snowflake wreath.
The Dollar Tree had miniature Christmas trees in both green and white. I decided to use the white trees as this snowflake wreath would be my post-Christmas winter wreath. Plus the white color scheme paired well with a couple of other recent dollar store DIY Christmas decorations like this one and this one.
DIY Christmas Decoration: Snowflake Wreath
All of the materials used in this snowflake wreath can be found at the Dollar Tree around the Christmas season.
One of the best part about this DIY Christmas decoration is the ability to change it up. This snowflake wreath looks great in a monochromatic white color scheme or full of color. Use faux berries, greenery, ornaments, ribbon, birds, or pinecones to customize it to your liking
- 6 miniature artificial Christmas trees
- duct tape
- decoration: faux metallic berries, faux snowballs, Christmas ornaments
- ribbon or wire for hanging
Remove the hexagon base piece from the bottom of the artificial trees and discard (or save for a later project).
Tape together the bottoms of the trees in pairs so you have three long pieces to work with. I’m calling these “branches”.
Arrange the trees in a snowflake shape and wrap with a wire to hold in place. You could also use duct tape for this step.
Arrange the stems of your faux berries and stems to match the shape of the snowflake branches and tape together. I used clear tape for this step. Place this on top of the branches.
Fluff out the branches. Bend down the bottom pieces to cover the taped and wired center of the wreath.
Add Christmas ornaments in between each branch for some extra sparkle. I used wire to wrap through the ornament loops and weave over the snowflake branches.
Add a piece of wire or ribbon to the back of the snowflake wreath to hang. I used a silver metallic ribbon for mine.
Here’s the final snowflake wreath hanging in my entryway. I’ll transfer it to the front door until it’s time for a wreath update.
This DIY Christmas decoration is fun to make and customize and much more affordable than the version I saw online.
