Wreath Centerpiece

Summer is around the corner, and I want to get my patio ready for cookouts and backyard parties.  I adore tropical flowers, and I have several varieties, like hibiscus, planted in my yard.  I wanted to bring that beauty to the table, so I used a lei to create a quick, inexpensive centerpiece.  At just $2 per centerpiece, you could make enough for a big gathering.  Or, since it IS a wreath, hang it on your door instead.  Your choice!

Dollar Store Crafts Wreath

Project estimate:

  • Wreath form, $1
  • Lei, $1
  • Rhinestones, on hand or $1
  • Glue gun, on hand

Total – $2 and up


(I purchased the wreath form and lei at Dollar Tree.)

To make your own wreath form centerpiece:

Step one:  Cut the lei to remove the flowers.  Discard the straws and just use the flowers and leaves.


Step two:  Use the glue gun to attach the leaves and flowers to the wreath form.  I glued two flowers together to make them fuller.


Step three:  Glue rhinestones to the centers of the flowers.


Your wreath/centerpiece is now ready to display!  You can place a hurricane glass in the center and put a candle inside.  You could also arrange a few candles inside the wreath.  As for me, being in mosquito country, I’ll probably plop a big citronella candle in the middle.  But it will be the prettiest citronella candle around!
