When do you start decorating for Halloween? Typically around here it is Oct 1st. here are some fun and not so hard DIY Halloween wreath ideas you can make in a weekend an enjoy for years to come.
I hope you find some inpiration from this post and I would love to see links to any of your DIY Wreaths.
I made this Spider Halloween Wreath inspired by Martha Stewart’s Wreath a few years ago and it is still intact. This year I added a floating spider by attaching some floral ribbon around a push pin and sticking it into the foam backing. Due to the materials I would not put this outside.
Pretty Simple DIY from Martha Stewart’s Website. steps:
The secret is reindeer moss, actually a lichen, available at crafts stores and garden centers.
The natural color of the moss, combined with some creepy-crawly embellishments, will make it appear as though you pulled the wreath from the depths of a cobweb-covered attic.
1. Hot-glue handfuls of moss to a Styrofoam wreath form until covered.
2. Apply a thin coat of craft glue to plastic spiders (available at Halloween stores); sprinkle with black glitter. Hot-glue spiders onto wreath.
3. Hang wreath using monofilament or a ribbon
Can’t find Glittery Spiders? No worries. Just buy the plastic or cloth ones and dip them in glue and then sparly black glitter and you get the same effect. I also used some mice to mix it up.
I have hit Pinterest for some fun DIY Wreath Ideas. Here one blogger shows you how to make a knock off of this William Sonoma Wreath.
Love this Christmas Ball Wreath technique for any seasonal wreath. Buy the ornaments after Christmas for an even more economical wreath.
