Shelf liner wreaths are a creative and budget-friendly way to add a unique touch to your home decor. This is a versatile project that can be customized for any season or occasion. This easy guide shows you how to craft your very own shelf liner wreath with common items found at Dollar Tree.
Read on to discover how to make a DIY shelf liner wreath, from gathering your supplies and preparing the shelf liners to attaching the liners to a wire wreath, adding embellishments, and making finishing touches.
1. Gather your supplies
- A 14-inch wire wreath. Find it at Dollar Tree, Walmart, or Target.
- Zip ties, wire, or pipe cleaners
- Shelf liners. It’s best to use wider weave liners with patterns for a more attractive look.
- Embellishments such as faux flowers, twigs, or themed decorations
- Hot glue gun
2. Prepare the shelf liners
Start by selecting the colors and patterns of shelf liners that you’d like to use. Keep in mind the overall theme or color scheme you want for your wreath. Once you’ve chosen your liners, cut them into appropriately sized strips for easy attachment to the wire wreath form.
3. Attach the shelf liners to the wire wreath
Use zip ties, wire, or pipe cleaners to secure the shelf liner strips to the wire wreath form. Ensure that the liners are evenly spaced and arranged around the form to create a full, balanced appearance.
4. Add embellishments
Now it’s time to personalize your wreath with embellishments. Incorporate faux flowers and twigs by attaching them to the wreath form using a hot glue gun. For themed wreaths, such as Halloween wreaths, consider adding faux spiders, skulls, and skeletons to create a spooky atmosphere.
5. Make finishing touches
Before displaying your wreath, make sure all the shelf liners and embellishments are secure and the wreath is well-balanced. Hang your completed shelf liner wreath in your favorite spot, such as a door or above the mantel, and enjoy the compliments from your friends and family. Find out more about making wreaths.

I think this is wonderful. I like using this better.
That makes a beautiful wreath. Thanks Debbie! Now my mind is whirling with ideas.

Those are so pretty! Like heavy duty tulle, but weatherproof! Great idea! Thanks for sharing!
AWESOME!! Ya, who would ever think of ‘shelf-liner’ for a ‘wreath’?? Not me, but I’m sure glad someone has an inventive mind. Definetly will be making one of these (maybe two……probably three); thinking of the seasons and my patio door. Thanks for this cleaver post Debbie.
I thought everyone would enjoy these. I sure do!
Great idea. I didn’t think you could do this, I love the orange and black one.
I’ve made 2 of them now and just so easy. They come out very pretty and full. My first was a cream color embellished w vines of Dollar tree grapes and a few wine corks. The other I used a mix of black, white and a black and white floral print. Very pretty

It’s really amazing. It looks beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
Very nice and low cost. I can make these for gifts.
Do you cut the shelf liner into squares and fold in half twice and pin the piece on or do you use hot glue? More details, please. I love the one with the “khaki/neutral” shelf liner as well as the black and orange.
Thanks, Deb. Please email me the answer about cutting the shelf liner and wiring it on.
Barbara there is a video down below. There is NO hot glue involved.

I make those alot. I use 6×6 squares. If you cut the 12″ roll in half than cut it in 6″squares. Somehow it looks fuller with those.

FYI, Dollar Tree has small clear zip ties that work great fir these. Also check your CVS, Wallgreens, they have great color shelf liners for a buck.
Pretty sweet idea! I wish I was that inventive.

These are sooooo pretty. My favorite is the beige with the orange sunflowers and cattails.
Well, I certainly think the shelf liner is far superior to stinky burlap. Having been in the floral industry for too many years—and having dealt with stinky, moldy burlap—I really can’t imagine who dreamed that up THAT to be a trend, other than some sadistic individual in the burlap industry. Your shelf liner idea is fab, and much easier to work with for everyone,
Don’t get me wrong, burlap is wonderful for one season out-door decor for farm or fall, but in the house, never for me. Grins, nice ideas in this post.
So cute!!! I like that it is more weather-resistant than burlap. Thanks for sharing these wreaths. I have totally missed out on this trend until I saw your post.
I love making these wreaths and they are easier then mesh on the hands lol I just need more colors of the grip liner . Any idea on a good supplier ? Thanks for sharing your tips , ideas and beauty of your work.
Have you checked Amazon? I know Walmart has a variety as well.
Contact Brand offers a wide variety of grip liners and different colors and different cushion too.
Love this idea. I made the burlap wreath from your tutorial like this, now going to try the shelf liner. Thank you so much!
Where do you buy your shelf liner? The dollar tree stores I go to have one color and it is usually a print… any suggestions on where to buy plain and in bulk to have on hand with multiple different “plain” colors without spending a foutune?
Walmart has plain colors.
I litterally can’t wait to go buy shelf liners Tom.
Thanks for sharing, I love ? it !! So excited !!!
Debbie, I’m making one of these following your video and like how easy it is and how it’s looking with this method. Would never do the squares – too much cutting, too much work attaching all of them for me. Is the black and orange one made by your “new” method? Help me understand how to mix in different colors please.
That is not my tutorial. I am not sure about mixing or the true method.
I love these wreaths what great ideas. Thanks Debbie

Debbie,I made one for our baby shower with baby items attached. Everyone loved them,I made two one with diapers on it! I did not use the zip ties as they were on tight enough to stay. Love you for sharing
I hope I don’t sound crazy here; but, I just found that someone plagerized your wonderful post…word for word…without giving you the deserved credit. https://diyjoy.com/shelf-liner-wreath/
As a fellow blogger I hate to see when someone “borrows” a whole post and not at least give a link to the original creator.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Very wrong!
Love this idea , can you tell me how many rolls of liner do you need to make a 14 inch wreath ? They are beautiful .
HI! DO YOU HAVE ANY INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE BLUE & BROWN SHELF LINER WREATH THAT HAS JUST COME OUT ON PINTEREST? IT MIGHT BE CALLED “SUNFLOWER”. THANK YOU.
I have not seen it yet Linda. I will keep an eye open for it.
Do you have a pattern or tutorial for a dogs head out of shelf liners?
No I am sorry we do not.
