Have you got a Christmas wreath that is old and boring? You know the ones I’m talking about. Maybe you inherited it years ago and you know it needs something fresh, but you’re out of ideas and short on money. Here’s a super cheap (easy) Dollar Tree Craft that will give your wreath or centerpiece new life for a new season!
How to Make a Snowflake Decorative Pick
- Craft Wire
- Floral Tape
- Styrofoam snowflakes
- Any wreath or centerpiece that needs a fresh look
I found these cute styrofoam snowflakes at the Dollar Tree but there was no easy way to attach to them a wreath. Sure, I could just hot glue them to the greenery, but I didn’t want them to be stiff and stuck forever.
- Cut a piece of craft wire about 10 inches long (depending on what you plan to do with it).
- Cover the wire with floral tape.
- Stick the wire into the snowflake. (Use a small dab of hot glue to keep the snowflake secure).
- Use the new Snowflake pick to add an instant upgrade to your wreath or centerpiece.
If you can’t find the snowflakes at your local Dollar Tree, then you might have to be a little more creative. Take a quick trip to the local thrift store and look through their Christmas decorations. You will probably find some old wreaths or plastic snowflakes that you could re-purpose as decorative picks.
Now that we all know how easy it is to create these decorative picks, the secret’s out. I can see styrofoam ornaments, Easter Eggs, hearts, birthday balloons, summer beach balls and anything else I can find at the Dollar Tree this next year being used for so many crafty creations. These picks will move a little when the door opens and give a fresh look to every season!
