It’s time for the Dollar Store Design Squad! Today, I’m sharing: How to Make a Flamingo Wreath.
Summer is officially here in the south. We’ve been able to swim in the pool for at least 3 weeks! Barry and I both require the water temp to be as close to 80º as possible.
Summer fun = flamingos! I need all the flamingos!
Be sure to check out all the Dollar Store ideas at the end of this post!
It’s time to welcome summer with a fun pink flamingo!
Dollar Store Supplies:
- Wire Wreath
- Foam Wreath
- Floral Wire
- Burlap Ribbon
- Plastic Flamingo
- Wire cutters (I had these in my tool stash, but they do sell them at Dollar Tree)
- Glue Gun (already had this)
- Attach the foam wreath to the wire wreath using the floral wire. I did this to make it easy to add the flowers. Wrap the floral wire in at least 4 places to secure, cut the excess wire with wire cutters.
- Wrap the wreath form with burlap ribbon (or ribbon of your choice). Use a glue gun to secure the end of the ribbon.
- Cut flowers with wire cutters, push the end in to the foam wreath. Pushing through the burlap is easy.
- Use a hot glue gun to attach the flamingo.
The wreath dresses up the potting bench and makes the area look fun and festive. I combined this wood pineapple that I found in the dollar spot at Target with a CC transfer to translate my love of summer. Between Dollar Tree and Target Dollar Spot, my summer decor is complete.
I almost forgot to mention my banner, it’s made from trash bags, also found at Dollar Tree. After a few quick cuts with my scissors I tied them to burlap string (you guessed it, also found at Dollar Tree).

Very cute and perfect for summer time! I have a few of those same flamingoes around my yard, LOL! Visiting from Scoop Party.
