Your local Dollar Tree store is a great source for supplies for fun Christmas crafts! Today I am participating in a Dollar Tree Christmas craft party with some talented bloggers around the web, and my contribution is this super cute Lego Wreath just for kids! I can’t tell you how excited my son was to have it on his bedroom door when I finished it.
The total cost for this project? A whopping six dollars, and it lights up! You have to love a dollar tree Christmas craft.
How to make a Lego Wreath
Up above I posted a video that shows you how to make this Lego Wreath from start to finish. But if you are more of a picture person, here is how you do it.
Materials from dollar tree:
- 18 inch Wreath
- 15 inch Wreath
- Mini string lights
- Building bricks in three colors
- Red ribbon
- Pipe cleaner
- Hot glue
Make LEGO shapes
Because I am a kid myself, I did the Lego portion of this project first. Take the little bags of bricks and make some random shapes out of them. You can make them to look like Christmas bulbs or just do a free form shape like I did.
If the child this is for wants to help with this part, it’s the perfect way to get them involved in the project!
Make a full Wreath
Dollar Tree wreaths are a little on the thin side, so doubling them up is necessary to make it look full and lush. Use two sizes if you can find them. Just place one inside the other. Use the string of mini lights to wrap around the two wreaths to tie them together. After you do that, fluff out the wreath’s branches.
Use a fairly wide ribbon for this project. Most of us have something hanging around the house at Christmas that will work, you only need about a 24 inch piece of ribbon for a nice size bow. No need to go buy something new for this wreath, but if you have to, the Dollar Tree has you covered for this, too!
Twist bunny ears into the piece of ribbon and tie in the middle with a pipe cleaner. Wrap the center of the bow with a small piece of the same ribbon and hot glue together in the back.
Stick the pipe cleaner through the wreath where the battery pack for the lights is positioned. From the back twist the pipe cleaners Together to fasten the bow to the wreath.
Assembling the LEGO Wreath
To put the Lego shapes permanently on the wreaths, just use a little bit of hot glue to fasten them in place. And you are done!
This entire project should take less than 15 minutes to make, maybe a little more if you have help from little hands! I love using command strips to hang up wreaths on interior doors. (Buy them here.) They come off very easily without damaging the doors!
