This fun pizza pan wreath or wall hanging is made from items I found at the Dollar Tree! You gotta love a good dollar store run, and when I found two of their adorable 2021 calendars, I knew just what I wanted to make! In this step by step tutorial, I'll show you exactly how to make your own wall hanging from a pizza pan!

I wish this was my original idea, but it's been floating around Pinterest for awhile! I've had a bag of split wood beads that I've been dying to make something with! When I saw Amber from The Maker's Map DIY here, I thought this wreath idea was the perfect project, and you might want to run to Dollar Tree and get your own supplies to make this cute pizza pan wreath!

I love when a DIY project exceeds expectations, and this project turned out so cute that I think I'll make these as Christmas gifts this year!

Let me show you how easy it is to make a beautiful pizza pan wreath. You'll find the supplies list at the end of my tutorial.

How to Make a Pizza Pan Wreath Wall Hanging

Find a picture in your calendar that you want to use and gently tear the page out. Lay the page on the pizza pan and score the corners with your fingernail, then cut out. Don't worry about the areas that are too short, we'll be covering those up with cord!

Can we just talk about these Dollar Tree calendars for a sec? They're unbelievably cute! They are often sold out so I was fortunate to grab a couple of different ones, both with pretty pages that will make great crafts! Here's a quick look. Can you imagine the possibilities for signs, wreaths, etc?

What would you make?

Okay, back to the DIY wreath. The next step is to remove the calendar design and paint the pizza pan with 2-3 coats of white chalk paint.

Once the chalk paint is dry, brush a thin, even coat of decoupage medium onto the pizza pan.

Center your calendar design on the wet decoupage and gently press to fit. Work out any air bubbles with a flat edge (like a credit card).

Let dry and then hot glue rope or cording around the rim of the pizza pan. I did two layers, which covered up the edges of the design.

Hot glue split wood beads evenly around the rim of the pizza pan.

Finally, to disguise the hole from the calendar page, you can make a quick bow and hot glue it to a magnetic button.

The bow can be replaced as I did here to show you how I can jazz this wall hanging up a bit for Christmas! This works because the design is neutral.

  1. Has cuteness all over it..
    I take it that you glued the jute on the back to hang?

    1. Thanks Colleen! I actually used a small Command hook at the back and hung the jute from that but you could easily glue it!

  2. Wow, Cindy! This is amazing.You always have the most beautiful DIYs.

  3. Aww thank you Kim, that is so sweet of you to say!

  4. Hi. Indy! This is so cute and I definetly want to make one. I don't really understand what the magnetic buttons are for. Am I missing something? Thank you for sharing.

    1. Cheryl, the magnetic buttons are for if you make more than one bow for the wreath. It just allows them to be interchangeable rather than permanent!

  5. Why do you paint the entire pan with chalk paint if you're going to place the page in the middle of the pan?

    1. Hey Diane, great question! Just to make sure the silver pan doesn't show through the paper. The dollar store calendar paper is fairly thin.
