Dollar Store Daisy Wreath

May 16, 2018

Whip up this cheap and easy Dollar Store Daisy Wreath in no time. 

Yellow Daisy Wreath

So spring has finally shown up, unfortunately the sun has not. It's been raining here for several days and the forecast doesn't look any different for the next week or so. Bummer.

That's ok, I decided to make my own sunshine...and for about six bucks. 


A few years ago, I made a dollar store snowflake wreath. While I thought it was cute, I didn't think it was anything to write home about, but as it turns out, that wreath is consistently one of my most popular posts. 

People really like the simplicity of it. They also really like the detailed instructions. So this winter when the idea to make a sunshine wreath popped into my head, I figured I would post about it. Again, not super original and pretty self explanatory, but I began Exquisitely Unremarkable to encourage beginners to DIY and non-crafters to craft, so here it is.

I hope it brightens your day!

I used five bushels of yellow Gerbera daisies from the dollar store. The didn't have them in the store, but I was able to use their ship free to store feature. I would like to say that it was a great experience, but it was not.

First of all, I received an email saying my flowers had arrived and after a twenty minute drive to the store, I was told, nope. Not there...truck doesn't come until Thursday and this happens all the time. I spent forty five minutes on hold to get a customer service rep who apologized, said she would expedite my case, try to track down my flowers and call me back within twenty four hours.

Yeah, it's been months and I still haven't heard from them.

I did however receive another email saying my flowers were REALLY at the store about a week later.  But they really weren't. They were at ANOTHER STORE, a few miles down the road. 

In the end, I got my flowers, but it was an aggravating process and I should've spent the few bucks to have them sent to my home. Lesson learned...and you've been warned. 

While I was at the store for pick up, I grabbed this foam ring. The process of making the wreath? So easy. I think it took me about ten minutes start to finish. First, I plucked the flowers from the stems.

Then I poked the plastic part of the stem into the foam.

When I had all my flowers poked in and in position, I went back with a glue gun, pulled the flowers out of their holes, one at a time, added a bit of glue to the stem and put them back in the hole. 

Now, I know the wreath looks anemic at this point, but wait, it gets better.

Next, I repeated the exact same process that I used on the front (or top) of the wreath form, on the side...all the way around. Poke, set spacing, remove, glue and pop back in.

Once the front and sides had flowers, it was much fuller and looked beautiful. To add a little more interest, I took a few of the green leaves from the stems and glued them to the back on the wreath, directly to the flowers.

The rain prohibited me from going outside to add it to my front door, so I played around with it inside. Besides being stunning on my red kitchen wall...

...I also realized that it would make a fabulous floral candle ring if laid flat. How pretty would this look with a glass hurricane placed in the center?

So of course, I tried it and I fell in love.

Hmmm. I may have to make another one, now. 

One for the wall, one for the table.

Sunshine in every room.

Regardless of the forecast. πŸ˜‰

  11. So pretty and cheerful too! That's a bummer about your ship to store experience. And can you send that rain my way? We're having record breaking heat and we're entering a drought. Insert big eye roll here. That's Houston for ya. :)

    1. I would love to send the rain to you, Lisa!! It's been going on for too long now and it's dragging down my mood. I will say that it seems to be keeping the pollen down though, so that's the silver lining. Always a silver lining, right? ☺️

  18. Kim, wow, money isn't everything, is it? This wreath looks about a million bucks! Seriously!! I think it should stay on your kitchen wall, it is just stunning against the red. I didn't even know that you could order from the $$ store on line. Good to know. Sometimes the simplest little thing equals really big beautiful!!..Have a wonderful weekend..xxoJudy

  20. you did a great job!! :) Looks wonderful! :) I love my local dollar store for essentials etc that are half the price of the grocery store down the street. I have gotten used to pricing out what to buy there first ( Toilet paper!! 5.00 for Charmin or 8.59? No contest :)

    1. Our store has come a long way, Deb. It was so good for crafts, but not much more. Now they're always adding new stuff.

  21. Your wreath just makes me smile:) I had a very similar experience back in March with WalMart!!! Won't go into all the torrid details but twice they canceled my order and told me that I HAD CANCELED it!!! And I had not. Told I would receive it, then told not, then told would....you get the picture. I finally told them to forget it and I ordered from Amazon. I will NOT order from WM again!!!

    1. Thanks Cheri! And I totally understand your frustration. What a mess. The gas to and from the store, the time on the lines, the aggravation of the conversations. I won't deal with it again, either. Amazon all the way.

  22. Such a darling idea Kim, making your own sunshine, I love it! We have had days of sunshine here, but today it was a rainy day, but I'm actually thankful for the rain because it was already getting kind of dry here. But... I adore the wreath you created... so fun, easy, and Amazing! You always share the best ideas, and I love how you write :) Hopefully you get those warm sunshiny days soon :)

    1. Thanks for all the sweet words, Marilyn!! It’s been raining here for days with no end in sight, meanwhile you’re the second person to say that their area needs rain. You think that Mother Nature would be better at spreading it around!! πŸ˜‰
