For my 3rd Dollar Tree Sunflower Idea, I’m making a gorgeous sunflower floral arrangement for the table. I love decor that can be used in different ways and for a long time. This simple and rustic Dollar Tree Sunflower Centerpiece is perfect for special occasions like a wedding, shower or party or for the Thanksgiving table. For me I’m using it as late summer and fall decor. The other best thing is that it cost less than $7 to make (totally budget friendly).
In case you haven’t heard I’m doing a set of Dollar Tree sunflower crafts for the next few weeks to help you get ready for fall with easy, cute and affordable crafts. Last week I made over a house into a beautiful sunflower decorations for your home and the week before I made a sunflower farm sign. Next week I’ll be sharing a sunflower home sign from the dollar tree so don’t miss it.

How To Make a Dollar Tree Sunflower Centerpiece
Some may be asking “How do you make a dollar tree centerpiece?” And I’m going to answer that question in a few easy steps.
Step 1: Sand and Paint the Wood Crates
Get started by sanding the crates to make sure there are no rough edges or pieces. Then choose what color you want to make the wood crates. I’m going with a stained look so I’m using the Folkart Antique wax because it gives the look of stain, but it super easy to put on and clean up from. Just add the wax to a lint free cloth and rub it onto the wood crates.
Make sure the larger wood crate with handles is flipped over because that’s the base so make sure you wax (or paint) the bottom of the crate too.
Step 2: Add in the Foam Block and Florals
After I completly finished my DIY sunflower centerpiece I realized that you could see the green floral foam through the slats of the crate. So I used a piece of scrap burlap material to wrap around the foam and place it into the crate. You could also use ribbon to wrap the foam piece too.
So do this step as you put in the foam piece into the small wood crate (it will be easier).
Here comes the fun part to add in the florals. Cut the florals with sharp scissors or wire cutters, then push them into the foam. Super easy!
I started with a Dollar Tree sunflower and placed it in the center of the of the foam. Then I added a sunflower to each side of the one in the center and behind it.
Once I had all my sunflowers in place I started adding in the viburnum and a pine cone. I placed the viburnum in between the sunflowers and on the edges. I also had a few leftover berry florals from the Dollar Tree in my craft stash so I added them too. Make sure you have a different color like the purple berries for a contrasting color in the centerpiece.
As I was creating this I just started poking the florals into the foam wherever I saw an empty space and it came out beautifully. Look at your floral centerpiece from the top and sides to fill in any empty spaces.
Step 3: Glue the Crates Together
I know this sunflower centerpiece will be moved around. Sometimes it will decorate the table (I think I’m going to make some more) or be a decoration in my sunflower display. So it’s important the pieces stay together.
Use a hot glue gun, wood glue or your glue of preference and glue the smaller crate in the center of the larger crate.
DIY Sunflower Centerpiece Dollar Tree
In 3 easy steps you have a stunning Dollar Tree sunflower centerpiece that your family and friends will think you payed so much for. Honestly I’m shocked by the cost of floral wreaths and arrangements. I fell in love with a wreath at Michaels and it’s on sale for $107. I mean that’s crazy! Hint, hint I’m definitely going to try and create that wreath with Dollar Tree materials.
Creating a sunflower centerpiece is really easy because any type of fall florals go with sunflowers so just make it yours.How cute would it be to add pumpkins for later in the fall?
