Snowman Wreath for Front Door (Dollar Tree DIY Idea)

Making a cute wreath for your door doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. This snowman wreath for the front door uses a Dollar Tree wreath form and a few dollars of supplies to create a winter time decoration that can be used for several months.

I’m loving the new types of Dollar Tree wreath forms. They make decorating your entryway so easy! And this Snowman wreath form is among my favorites!

With just four items from the dollar store, you can transform this basic form into a stunning design.

Let’s get started!

How to Make a Snowman Wreath for the Front Door

Step 1

Apply a layer of hot glue to the rings of the snowman wreath form. Be sure to apply to the bars that are inside each circle that act as supports, too.

Step 1 glueing rope to wire wreath form for snowman

Lay the nautical rope on the hot glue from the outside of the wreath, which is the side that would be shown when hanging. You want the rope to be on top of the circle wire forms rather than behind them.

Step 2 adding rope to dollar tree wreath wire form for snowman

I started gluing the rope at the top of the neck for the large circle, and the base of the neck for the head. That way, the cut ends will be hidden by the bow.

Cut the rope where it overlaps with itself. Be sure to hot glue the ends of the rope down so that it doesn’t fray or fall off.

Step 2

Cut the seams on the fur pillow on 3 sides, leaving one side attached. You will now have a large piece of fluffy fabric to work with.

Step 3 trimming cotton for dollar tree snowman wreath

From this large piece, cut a section big enough to cover the bottom circle form. It’s okay to cut a square piece and trim later.

Using the hot glue gun, glue the fabric to the backside of the snowman wreath form. You might need to stretch it across the center part to fit.
