DIY Halloween Wreath
 
Growing up my mom always had us crafting especially around the holidays. My sister and I would sit down with my mom and make our own holiday decorations. This was probably the start of my love affair with crafting. Since we moved into the new house I didn’t have any real decorations for fall/Halloween being that we lived in an apartment previously. So, I decided to make my own Halloween wreath and thought I would share this really easy and fun DIY.



You will need a few things for this wreath which if you are a craftaholic you might already have on hand. I didn’t have anything so I went out and bought new supplies. What is great about making your own wreath is everything is interchangeable use ribbons etc. that are to you taste!


 
Supplies
Wreath – You can use any kind I went for this twig version since it reminded me a bit of fall.
Ribbon- Again pick what suits your style or what you already have handy, I decided to go with two colors one in a solid and the other a chevron print.
Miniature Pumpkins/ Burlap Flower/floral stems – Pick some festive items that will work with the style of your wreath. These were purchased at Hobby Lobby (I ALWAYS shop when they have the items on sale) but similar items can be found at any craft supply store. These little add-ons really help bring character to the wreath.
Halloween themed sign – I picked these up at Michael’s, they were relatively inexpensive (I think I spent 10 bucks on both of them) and an easy way to add a little Halloween flare.
Hot Glue
Glue Gun
Scissors/ Wire cutters
To start I wrapped the wreath simultaneously with the ribbons having the chevron print on top. I loved the look of the branches so I kept the ribbon generously spaced. You may find a wreath form that you want to wrap completely in ribbon which would look great too! Use hot glue to secure the ribbon to the branches (or what you are using as the wreath form).
 
Next I like to place everything out on the wreath starting with the floral pieces/ miniature pumpkins (I pulled these off from the stems) and adding in the signs until I am happy with the arrangement. I always seem to balance the wreath with objects on both sides; this is just what I find pleasing to the eye so do what works for you!  Once I am sure about the placement I hot glue everything down.
 
 
That’s it! so simple the whole thing took me no more than 30 minutes! I love doing these types of crafts they really get me into the holiday spirit! Do you ever make your own holiday decorations? I would love to hear from you in the comments!
