DIY Dollar Tree Fall Décor

Posted by August on Sep 16, 2021 12:58:53 PM

One of my favorite things about being a homeowner is decorating my house for each season. With the first day of fall being next week, I figured it was about time to get started on my fall décor. Unfortunately, the décor had been picked over everywhere I looked or was super expensive, so I decided to make my own.

Since my fall décor will stay out through Thanksgiving, I made a centerpiece to highlight my kitchen table. I wanted to make something that looked elegant but wouldn't cost a lot of money, so I scoured Pinterest and TikTok for the perfect design.

I am by no means crafty or creative, but I can follow directions, so Pinterest and TikTok were a great place to go for ideas and a video of step-by-step directions. I saw a ton of cute fall décor crafts on those sites with supplies from the Dollar Tree, which was right up my alley.

I headed to my local Dollar Tree to grab supplies. Before going, I checked online for a Dollar Tree with a "Crafters Square" section; these Dollar Trees are supposed to have a few more crafting supplies than the traditional Dollar Trees do. Here's how to search for "Crafters Square" Dollar Trees.

While on the Dollar Tree website, I saw where Dollar Tree has many craft ideas with step-by-step instructions if you're looking for more décor ideas. 

What You'll Need:

  • White Foam Board
  • Two of the 2ct. Pack White Foam Disks
  • Tacky Glue
  • 3 Candle Holders
  • 3 Candles
  • Florals of your choice (I used a fall floral assortment and pumpkins)


How to Make the Centerpiece

  1. Using a box cutter, trim your foam board down to fit the four foam disks side-by-side (approximately 20x6 in.)
  2. Glue the four foam disks side-by-side onto the foam board.
  3. Glue the three candle holder on the seam where the disks touch.
  4. Trim your florals using wire cutters until there's just enough stem to poke into the foam disk.
  5. Hide the foam disks and foam board using your florals. Make sure to get plenty of florals so that there aren't any bare spots.
  6. Once all the foam is hidden, place your candles into the candle holders and light them.
  7. Voila, the perfect fall centerpiece!
