Dollar Store Craft Challenge ~ A Spring Banner and Moss Wreath

Today, I’m joining a few blogging friends for a Dollar Store Craft Challenge.

Dollar Store

You know I love a Dollar Store project so I set off to pick up my supplies.  When I saw the pretty blue seed packets an idea sprang to mind.  So I quickly looked around the store for the other supplies needed to make a banner and small moss wreath for my dining room.

Twelve flower seed packets, pink jute twine, green foam wreath form, and 2 packages of Reindeer Moss were all I needed from the Dollar Store.

The banner is very simple.  I clipped the seed packets to the pink jute with some small clothespins from my stash.

The moss wreath wasn’t difficult just a little time-consuming.  I used my glue gun to adhere the moss to the green foam wreath using the following steps:

Apply the glue to the wreath form in a one by a two-inch patch.

Then select enough moss to cover the glue patch.

Apply the moss to the wreath one patch at a time.

When the glue cooled enough to touch I took my hand and squeezed around the wreath form to ensure the moss adhered consistently.

The moss covers the front of the wreath quite well but the moss on the back is a bit thinner so that the wreath lies flat.

Once happy with the wreath’s moss coverage glue a jute hangar to the back for displaying on a window or door.

I am very happy with how the banner and wreath turned out

and there is a bonus.  These seeds can be planted for even more enjoyment throughout the summer.

Total Spent for the March Dollar Store Challenge

Banner $5 ($4 for seed packets and $1 for the pink jute)

Moss Wreath $3 ($2 for the reindeer moss and $1 for the foam wreath form)

For a total of $8, I made both Spring projects.
