Put this DIY Halloween Wreath on your to-make list right now. So fun and so easy.
Hi there Eighteen25 friends! We are twin sisters Kelli + Kristi of Lolly Jane and absolutely thrilled to be back for our favorite series ever to help get in the Halloween spirit around here! This is our 8th year in a row participating and although we have our own Halloween diy’s, recipes, and etc., we can hardly wait to see what other spooktacular ideas are in the works on Eighteen25 this month!
We’re kicking off the series with how we would decorate our own home: front porch first. We love us a good wreath DIY and paired with items from the dollar store is a slam dunk for a successful project in our books… we love cheap crafts! It all started with this fun $1 skeleton hand my toddler toted around the store that found its way to check out. I had a $1 grapevine wreath in my cart so I simply gathered ribbon I had around the house, plus a few craft supplies like scissors and hot glue, and bam: Halloween wreath in the works!
- Decorative Skeleton hand… no real ones, please. 😉
- 12” Grapevine wreath form
- White and black ribbon, 1 spool each
- Orange ribbon (long enough to make a bow) and ribbon to hang
- Hot glue gun, 2 sticks
- White spray paint
Instructions for DIY Halloween Wreath:
- Spray paint skeleton hand white
- Cut ribbon in 4” strips (12-14 of each color)
- Add a thin row of glue to the end of a piece of ribbon and attach to wreath, fold around wreath and secure with another thin row of glue to secure shut.
- Alternate the other color ribbon next to it and glue, repeat repeat repeat.
- Once wreath is fully wrapped, loop ribbon around wreath and tie in knot at the top; glue in place onto wreath, (as pictured.)
- Making sure skeleton hand is completely dry, add a thick row of hot glue to the top of the hand and press against the wreath form, (as pictured.)
- Once dry, tie orange ribbon into a bow and hot glue onto the wrist.
- Hang and enjoy your creepy but cute Halloween wreath as it greets your visitors!
That’s it! I turned on a Hallmark movie while I was wrapping all those pieces of ribbon onto the wreath form; I had the whole project done in less than an hour. Yay!
Isn’t the neon orange so cute paired with Kelli’s pink doors?
