Instructions to make your own Dowel Wreath are from Lowes website. I am putting the instructions from their website here.
INSTRUCTIONS:Step 1: Use a miter saw to cut a 2"×48" dowel into 36 discs: 9 at 1-1/4", 9 at 1", 9 at 3/4", and 9 at 1/2". Sand the faces and edges of all discs with medium-grit sandpaper.
Step 2: Pair each 1-1/4" disc with a 1" disc and glue each pair together side-by-side. Allow glue to dry for several hours.
Step 3: Use a compass to draw a 9-1/2"-diameter circle on a piece of cardboard or paper. Cover the drawing with waxed paper; this will prevent the glue from sticking in Step 4.
Step 4: Use the drawing as a guide to arrange the 9 pairs of glued discs in a circle --alternate the 1-1/4" discs with the 1" discs. Glue the pairs of discs together, maintaining the circle shape. Allow the ring to dry.
Step 5: Arrange the 1/2" and 3/4" discs in a second ring outside the first, alternating the sizes, and then glue them along the outside of the first ring. Allow the glue to dry overnight.
Step 6: Leave the wood raw or finish with paint, stain, or a coat of polyurethane.
Here's how mine turned out! :)
