- Craft glue
- Mod podge
- Newspaper and other protective materials for your work space
As you can see the list isn’t that long and you likely have some of these items on hand already. Gather them up and let’s get started.
Dollar Tree Supplies for DIY Fall Décor
At the Dollar Tree, you never know just what you will find for your crafting projects. When you are creating crafts for the fall season, you will want to grab the following items.
- Fake leaves (on the branches or off, they are useful either way)
- Faux pumpkins
- Wreath forms (or wooden circles, whatever you can find)
- Faux Fruit
- Faux Flowers
- Ribbon (preferably burlap or other fall colors)
- Small jars or candle holders
Grabbing a variety of these items will ensure you are able to make most crafts on this list. Remember that it’s better to grab extra than not enough.
How to Make a Cheap Fall Wreath
During the fall season, a nice fall wreath will look great over your front door, fireplace, or anywhere else in your home you have space. Here’s how you make one for cheap.
- Wreath form (grapevine works best)
- Faux leaves
- Faux fall fruits
- Faux fall colored flowers
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue
- Mini faux pumpkins
- Burlap ribbon
Step 1: Trim Your Leaves and Flowers
Faux leaves and flowers tend to come with a lot of stem. While you want to leave some for efficient wrapping and gluing, you may want to trim off leaves or other excess. You should also separate any flower bunches into single flowers.
Step 2: Add to the Wreath
Using hot glue and your weaving skills, add the flowers and faux leaves into the wreath. Weave them in and out of the grape vine leaving small bits showing but also providing ample coverage.
Step 3: Glue Mini Pumpkins
Once you have a semi colorful wreath, glue one or two mini pumpkins to the corner of the wreath. You could also add a burlap bow.
Step 4: Add a Hanger
Flip your wreath over to the back. Some wreaths come with a hanging hook, but if yours doesn’t, use the burlap ribbon to make one. Glue in place with hot glue and let dry before hanging.

Because Halloween happens during the fall season, it is perfectly fine to mix the decor of the two, and it may even make your home look even more festive.
The easiest way to decorate for fall is collecting items like leaves, pinecones, pumpkins, and other fall items and placing them in baskets, or on shelves around your home.
