How to make a beautiful fall door hanger with dollar tree supplies. Includes supply list, tutorial, and video. #diyfallwreath
This is my first fall DIY of the season and I’m super excited to share it with you!
I know what you’re thinking-it’s 98 degrees outside why are you showing us fall door decor?
Well, the answer is simple. The supplies needed to make this beautiful pumpkin door hanger sell out really fast.
So fast that I had to shop at two different Dollar Tree stores to find enough of the pretty blush color leaves.
I’ve mentioned this before, but it definitely bears repeating. When you see something you like at Dollar Tree, scoop it up as soon as you can because chances are it will sell out.
Just look at the gorgeous neutral color of the fall leaves:
The fall leaves have a soft blush color to them so they can be used in all kinds of neutral home decor and design styles.
Are you ready for the best part? There is no hot glue needed! So you can easily remove the fall stems and use the bag to make another door sign, or even for a night on the town!
Can you believe this beauty was only $1.25? It’s not like that plastic pleather either.

Supplies Needed to Make a Fall Door Hanger
- White Maples Leaves – I used 3 stems
- Flocking Ball Bushes – 2 stems
- Cotton Stems 2 stems – I’ve seen these for about 3x the cost at craft stores!
- Faux Leather Hand Bag
- Upcycled Packing Paper
- Hello, Pumpkin Tag (Target Dollar Spot)
How to Make a Neutral Fall Door Hanger
Step 1. Add packing paper to the bag
Do you know the packing paper that comes in Amazon packages? It’s always a good idea to keep some of that.
It’s useful for shipping gifts, packing, and sometimes in crafts.
Just tear the paper and crumble up a handful at a time.
Step 2. Continue to add packing paper
You want to push it into the corners of the tote bag so it fills it out a little more.
Don’t overfill it, but the bottom quarter of the bag should be filled.
The paper will also secure the fall florals and leaves used in the next step.
Step 3. Add Fall Leaves
Next up, place the fall leaves into the tote bag. You don’t even have to cut the stems. It doesn’t get much easier than that to create a fall wreath.
Just place them right inside the bag. It’s best to break down the bag into three sections. Add a stem to each side then a stem to the middle.
Step 3. Add the fillers
While I only used 3 leaf stems, you can add more if you want it fuller. Once you have the leaves where you want them, it’s time to add the pretty flocking balls.
I first saw these pretty pastel-colored balls on the Dollar Tree website. I may or may not have called a few local stores to see if they had them in the store so I didn’t drive all over the state. 🙂
Step 4. Add cotton stems
Now it’s time to add the fluffy balls of cotton. I still can’t believe these babies are at Dollar Tree.
But my favorite cotton craft so far was an adorable cotton ball pumpkin.
Simply place a cotton stem on each side of the arrangement. I love how fluffy the stems are and they look great against the cream-colored pumpkins and leaves.
Step 5. Attach a fall tag
The last step is to attach the darling hello pumpkin tag with wood beads that I found at the dollar spot. Isn’t it so cute?
Just wrap it around the front handle of the tote bag. I also tucked the straps into the bag.
With no glue being used and the straps still secure, the bag can still be used as a tote if you want.
That’s all there is to it. A unique fall door decoration that is a nice change from a standard grapevine wreath. Plus, it was under $10 to make. You can’t beat that!
This is a large-size wreath perfect for a front door. It would look equally as gorgeous inside for a touch of fall autumn decor.
Because I took about 200 photos here are a few more. Enjoy!
