Do It On a Dime is showing us specifically how to pull off an amazing holiday mantle, something that is a key to a classically decorated winter home. Here’s what you’ll need to get start:

Dollar Tree Christmas Wreath


  • 3 oval platters
  • 3 rectangular platters
  • 10 circular platters
  • Hot glue


  1. Start by laying down five of the ten circular platters in a circle.
  2. In between each one, alternate the oval and rectangular platters.
  3. Layer the final five circular platters on top.
  4. Use hot glue to keep everything together, gluing one layer at a time.
  5. You can add a hanging mechanism to the back or just lean it against your mantle wall.
  6. Make sure to dress up your wreath with some little decorations.
