Halloween WreathesA Halloween wreath hanging on your front door during the haunting season is a wonderful way to say "Welcome to our Haunted Home" to your visitors. They usually don't cost very much and are an easy project that the entire family can enjoy making together. We hang one on every door, inside and out including the garage. They also make great wall decorations for both the home and office.

This giant wreath, which we named Wreathzilla, is a full four feet across and is great for hanging on a garage door or large wall. All of the materials were found at local craft and departments stores and it only took an hour to put together. Total cost was under fifty dollars. We purchased a large grapevine wreath at a local arts & crafts store. We also bought a six foot garland of autumn leaves and wrapped it around the grapevine wreath. We added a giant spider web to the center and got a light-up spider to stick on it.

We picked up some artificial pumpkins and hot glued them on. We picked out some wide Halloween ribbon with wire edges and made a bow and glued that on as well.

This commercially made wreath was distributed by Mr. Christmas in 1993 and unfortunately is no longer available. We were fortunate enough to buy two of them. This black plastic wreath is good sized, measuring fourteen inches across and came with a motion-detecting, ceramic Witch mounted in the center. When activated an audio sound effects track is played for the visitors. To this we added two battery powered Halloween light sets, pumpkins and ghosts, the little broom and some plastic harvest garnishment. It looks great on the front door!

Store bought wreaths like these are available in craft and department store craft sections at this time of the year and can be used as is on your doors and walls. But they can also act as a base wreath that you can customize by adorning them with your own Halloween ornaments, trimmings and lights.

With the wreath on the right, we plan on repainting the sign so it says "Happy Halloween" instead of Harvest. Save time by buying a pre-made wreath and doing a small customizing job on it!

Designing and making your own Halloween wreaths from scratch is a fun and entertaining project for the entire family. During the Halloween season you can find all sorts of Halloween craft materials in the stores. Twist ties and a hot-glue gun are great for attaching the ornaments to the wreath base.
