Sunflower Clothespin Wreath

Making wreaths doesn’t have to be difficult. This easy sunflower clothespin wreath shows how simple it can be to make your own stunning decoration for the front door!

Plus, it’s a Dollar Tree craft. So this cute wreath is actually very inexpensive to make, too!

If you can use a can of spray paint and a hot glue gun, you can definitely do this!

What’s great about this easy wreath is that you use a pizza pan as the wreath form. It’s cheap and super simple to use!

If you wanted to write messages on this wreath, you could use chalkboard paint for the pizza pan rather than glossy black paint. This would be ideal to write “Welcome” for a front door or use the wreath in your kitchen to jot down notes.

Dollar Tree Clothespin Wreath

All of the supplies, other than the spray paint, were bought at the Dollar Tree. Which makes this a very affordable wreath to make. The cost of supplies was:

  • 2 packs of clothespins: $2
  • Pizza pan: $1
  • Greenery: $1
  • Sunflowers: $1

Total Cost: $5

If you already had some of these items at home, it would obviously cost much less. This is assuming you have some spray paint to use at home. Otherwise, you can buy spray paint and use it for a variety of other crafts, too, since it won’t take a lot for this project.

How to Make a Sunflower Clothespin Wreath


  • 2 Packages of Clothespins – 72 total (you can buy on Amazon, too)
  • Dollar Tree Pizza Pan
  • Yellow Spray Paint (I used Rustoleum Ultracover in Golden Sunset)
  • Black Spray Paint (chalkboard paint is also an idea)
  • Wirecutters (optional)
  • Boxwood bunch
  • Sunflower bunch
  • Small piece of rope, twine or ribbon
  • Hot glue gun/ glue sticks


Step 1

Spray paint all of the clothespins with yellow spray paint. You can leave the clothespins on their card from the packaging when spraying. Be sure to spray all of the edges and in between the clothespin halves where the hinges are. You don’t want to see any brown peeking through.

Step 2

Coat the entire front of the pizza pan with black spray paint. Let dry completely. This could take a while if it’s humid outside, so allow at least 30-60 minutes.

Step 3

Clip all of the clothespins around the outer edge of the pizza pan. They don’t have to be touching each other, you can leave a little bit of space in-between each clothespin.

Leave a small section blank with no clothespins. This is where you will add flowers.

Step 4

Make a loop with your ribbon and hot glue it to the back of the pizza pan to create a hanger for the wreath.

Step 5

If needed, use wire cutters to cut the greenery stems and sunflower stems that you want to use.

Hot glue stems of the greenery to the open area of the pizza pan first. Then add sunflower stems and hot glue securely to the wreath form. Press firmly to get the greenery and flowers to stick to the pan.

If you like this easy wreath, then you will love my other wreath ideas, too. I used a dollar store pool noodle for this farmhouse wreath.

This wicker cowboy hat makes the perfect wreath form! And this square wreath is made with branches from the backyard.

I used herbs and perennials from the garden to make this colorful dried flower wreath that is gorgeous over the fireplace!

Love the wreath! I will try this come Autumn. Why didn't you make mention the cost of the spray paint? That will raise the total cost of the wreath.

Many people have half empty spray cans of paint that can easily be used for the project. If you don't have paint at home, just add the cost of a bottle to the project total for your specific needs.
