Thank you so much for joining me in this blog hop today! I’ve teamed up with 11 other extremely talented bloggers to share our Easter crafts on a budget, like my DIY Easter trellis. Each of us was given a budget of no more than $10 and challenged to create an Easter inspired craft using items from the dollar store or dollar section of our local stores. If you have any budget friendly Easter crafts to share, please add it to the link-up at the bottom of this post so it can be seen on all of our blogs!
Meet the Hosts!
Challenges are essential to growth in every area of your life. They help you to learn your strength as a person, improve your various skills, and more. That is why I love doing these budget craft blog hops. They challenge me to create beautiful projects for you that stretch and strengthen my craft skills while appealing to my frugal nature. For the budget Easter craft challenge I wanted to push myself even further and chose to step outside of my comfort zone to create a garden decoration. That is exactly what I did with this dollar store DIY Easter trellis.

*All of these materials came from the dollar store with the exception of the glue gun and grocery bags.
- Metal Decorative Planter
- 3 Bunches of Flowers
- 1 Bunch of Butterflies
- Decorative Cross
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Plastic Grocery Bags
Remove the tags from all of your materials. (Don’t forget the sticker on the bottom of your planter.)
Cut the stems of your flowers as pictured above.
Begin gluing your flowers to the inside edge of your planter. Continue until the entire circumference of your planter is lined with flowers.
Stuff your plastic bags into the center of your planter and flowers.
Fill out the center of your planter by placing hot glue on the stems of your remaining flowers (one at a time) and angling them into your planter to fill gaps. Continue until you have filled the planter.
Once your glue has dried, fluff your flowers to create a full planter. Set your flower-filled planter to the side.
Remove the ribbon and heart from your cross.
Glue your cross to your trellis, aligning the top of the cross with the top of your trellis.
Remove the butterflies and leaves from their bunch.
Place the stems of your leaves through the center of your cross as pictured and secure with glue.
- Be sure to fan out the leaves to give them the appearance of fronds.
Glue your planter to the bottom of your trellis, with the lip of the planter resting on the bottom wire of the trellis.
- This will take a lot of glue. You want to be sure it will stay.
Glue some butterflies to the leaves in the center of your cross.
- If you want, you can remove one flower from your planter and glue it to the leaves as I did in the pictures.
Lastly, add a couple of butterflies to the planter. Once all of your glue is dry, place your trellis in your garden and enjoy.
This is an inexpensive Easter decoration to brighten up your garden. I love how it looks in ours. The flowers will brighten up the garden until our natural flowers begin blooming. This also makes a fun and festive place to hide an Easter egg or two for the day of festivities! Just be sure to put it towards the front so little feet aren’t tromping through your beautiful garden.
