Halloween Wreath

Dana asked me to make her a Halloween wreath so she can spookify her house. I told her that she should totally make one herself because they are easy and fun! She said she’d rather bake. I said I’d rather make wreaths than bake — guess that’s why we are best friends!

Dana picked up supplies for her wreath and dropped them off at my house, so I quickly got to creating a spooky masterpiece.

I used a wire wreath form and lots of spooky garland.

To start the wreath, I tucked one end of the garland into the wire wreath form. I dabbed some hot glue to keep it secure, then proceeded to wrap the garland around the outer edges of the wreath. Once the garland was all of the way around, I secure the end with hot glue and tucked it into the wire form.

Note: If you use hot glue on this sort of plastic garland, it smells like skunk. Oh so pleasant.

With the wreath part complete, I started to add the fun, spooky additions Dana gave me: Spider rings, glitter spiders, and  a glitter skull. I added all of these to the wreath with, yep, hot glue.

Totally spooky cute 🙂

Have you made any fun Halloween decorations this year?
