HOMEMADE HALLOWEEN WREATHS


Wreaths add a homey touch to your Halloween decor. Usually seen on front doors, people now use them all over the house in places such as over the fireplace, in bathrooms and on walls in every room in the house. Here, we'll show you how to make a Halloween wreath that will be the envy of all the boils and ghouls!

Supplies Needed for Halloween Wreath:
Wire Wreath Form
Black Halloween Garland
Wide Halloween Themed Ribbon
Halloween Mini Items Such as Bats, Skulls, Tombstones, Skeletons
Small Battery Powered Light Pack
Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
Wire Cutters or Heavy Duty Kitchen Shears
Yard Gloves

First, you'll need to wrap the garland around the wire wreath form. You may want to wear a pair of yard gloves to do this as the garland can give you some nasty cuts. It usually comes in 9 foot lengths, cut into manageable sections of three feet. You'll have to bend it around the form, which makes doing this a bit easier but the garland can feel sharp.

Wrap around the wire form, securing every few wraps with black plastic zip ties. These are the little ties that have a locking system, when you pull the strip through, it makes a zip noise. You can find these at your local hardware store. Pull them as tight as you can and cut off the loose end.

When you have the form tightly wrapped, you can start decorating your base wreath. Use a hot glue gun to attach what ever you want. You can also wrap the wreath loosely with Halloween themed ribbon first, we chose a wide wire ribbon. We used mini skulls, mini tombstones, and a couple of mini skeletons.

Once you have everything arranged where you want it to go, glue it to the wreath using the hot glue gun. If you want to add a set of small lights, you can do that now. We used a battery pack black light set but you could use an electric set if the wreath will hang close to a wall outlet.

Here's our finished Halloween wreath, all ready to greet our visitors on Halloween night! Store your wreath in a box, well wrapped and padded, and you'll have it for years to come!
