DIY: Spooky Halloween Wreath

I’ve had this gorgeous tulle Halloween wreath pinned for over 6 months. Last week, I realized Halloween is right around the corner and I could finally make it!

So, I broke out my craft case and got to work.

As you can see, I have a straw wreath form. Michael’s did not have 8-inch foam wreaths, so I got straw and left the plastic wrapper on so I wouldn’t have to deal with it falling apart of poking me. It worked out fine! I also (severely over purchased) my accessories from Michael’s.

I got the ribbon and roll of tulle from Hobby Lobby, and here is a money-saving tip: they have 100-yard rolls of “Christmas Tulle” for $9.99 (and they were 40% off). Even though they’re labeled as Christmas, they come in every color, including black. In comparison, in the fabric section the tulle was $4.99 for a 25-yard roll.

Before you start any craft projects it’s important to have a pug check everything out thoroughly, for safety.

Everything seems legit here, so you can banish the pug from the room and get started.

I eyeballed a length of tulle and tied it around the wreath form, and I happened to be happy with my first try. I would say it’s about 20 inches long. My wreath ended up on the larger side, so you could definitely go shorter to make it more compact.

Once the wreath is fully wrapped, I went to town with my accessories and glue gun.

Unfortunately, my awesome glittery black crow was too big for the wreath. I’m looking for another project to use it because I want to use it for something.
