Dollar Store Olive Appetizer Wreath

Facebooktwitterpinterestmail

This very thrifty affordable appetizer idea literally cost $7, and I’m calling it my “Dollar Store Olive Appetizer Wreath”. Welcome to this month’s Thrifty Style Team post, where I love to share affordable decorating ideas along with my very talented thrifty blogger friends. This month, it’s all about the holidays since we are so close to Christmas!

This gorgeous "Dollar Store Olive Appetizer Wreath" is not only afforadable, but almost everything comes from the dollar store!

It’s a bitter sweet time here at redheadcandecorate.com. This past week I was welcomed into an online Christmas tour I have always admired and hoped to one day be a part of…you can actually view it all here: Holiday Housewalk 6 Room Home Tour.

Unfortunately, the achievement comes at a time when my mom is very ill in the hospital. I am with her now, and my work helps me deal with the worry that goes along with an ill loved one. I promise I will update soon, but for now things are too uncertain. In the mean time, I really want you to have this cool idea that only takes a few minutes, and a few dollars to create for a holiday party, gathering, or event. Are you in charge of bringing something to a Christmas party? Boom, I got you covered.

SUPPLIES NEEDED TO ASSEMBLE DOLLAR STORE OLIVE APPETIZER WREATH

  • 1 dollar store plastic tray (15 inches wide)
  • 5 cans dollar store black olives
  • 1 jar dollar store green olives
  • 1 dollar store votive candle
  • small red ornaments or red decor balls

HOW TO CREATE DOLLAR STORE OLIVE APPETIZER WREATH

  • Remove sticker on back of tray and then clean tray with soap and water.
  • Drain olives in strainer and place like photo below.
  • Add small clippings of pine tree slowly to center, and carefully place each piece so it is “flowing” like a wreath would naturally flow in one direction.
  • Add 3 green olives grouped in 5 areas like the photos show. The green olives are meant to be the “berries”.
  • Add fresh pine on edge to create more of a full wreath look.
  • You can add red ornaments or keep it all natural.
  • Add the candle in the middle.
  • Serve with a cheese & cracker tray like this —–> Cheese & Cracker Tray.

Look how pretty the “Olive Appetizer Wreath” looks up against the Christmas decor. Add more pine if you like, or leave the pine on the outside off all together. Totally beautiful for only dollar store supplies!

    So very sorry to hear your Mother is ill. Especially hard at Christmas time. I understand how keeping busy with your work helps; keeps your mind filled with lighter thoughts. I’m praying for you all; hope she is feeling better soon and also ‘Dad in NY’ (give him a big hug).
    The olive tray is so cute; simple, easy and eloquent; your special touches give Dollar Tree a big boost!

  11. You are the queen of appetizers! It’s official!

  12. Jane Windham says:

    Julie, if I put this out, Leo would consume the whole darn tray! He loves black olives. It sure looks pretty, though. I was thinking that you could use pretty red radishes as a garnish, too. Keeping you and your mom in my prayers.

  13. Mary Beth says:

    Julie, this is so pretty and clever…and I love olives!

  14. Bette says:

    Hi Julie:

    Glad to hear your Mom is home now, wishing her a speedy recovery. I have a meaning for MOM ( Make One Meaningful!) They give us so much of themselves, it’s time to give back.

    If I make the wreath, I’ll probably mix in a lot of the green olives in a marble effect. Great idea.

    Cheers, Bette

  15. So pretty and the perfect way to serve an appetizer during the holidays!
