Can you believe it’s already that time of year to start thinking about Halloween decorations?? Check out how I made my Spooky Halloween Wreath below!
It’s no secret that I love decorating for Halloween, and it seems like the decorations in the stores just keep getting better and better every year.
My excitement for Halloween has rubbed off on my children and even my husband over the years. We like to decorate the yard and add something new every year, we are still on the hunt for the perfect thing to add this year. We have a couple of things in mind so we will see what we decide on.
Last week while we were in Texas my daughter text me and told me she had already started putting up the Halloween decorations in the front yard because she couldn’t wait any longer, it made my heart happy that she loves decorating for this holiday as much as I do. When it comes to Halloween decor, at least outside, I like to mix a little spooky/scary in with my decorations. Normally I don’t decorate too scary inside, but I wanted this Halloween wreath to be more on the spooky side so I thought if I used everything black to decorate the wreath it would give it the look I was looking for.
Supplies needed to make the Spooky Halloween Wreath:
black spray paint ( I used metallic by Rust-oleum)
black silk flowers
hot glue gun and glue
black bird or crow ( wire for the crow to sit on the wreath)
Halloween sprigs of your choice (spiders)
Directions for DIY Spooky Halloween Wreath:
First step is gathering all of your supplies. I used a grapevine wreath I already had on hand if you don’t have one you can purchase these wreaths at most craft stores for only a few dollars. I knew I wanted my to be black so I painted it with a black metallic spray paint. I used Rust-oleum paint and primer and did a few coats to make sure and cover everything really well.Once the paint was dry I glued the moss to the bottom of the wreath with hot glue, when I had everything just how I liked it I spray painted the moss also.
Next, I took the tops off the flowers and hot glued them onto the moss. Once again I got everything just how I wanted it and then I stuck the glittery sprigs and spiders onto the wreath.
The final addition was the black crow. I don’t know why I think they’re so creepy but I knew it would be perfect for my spooky Halloween wreath. I wired the crow into the middle of the wreath so it won’t come loose even with the door opening and closing. If you have all of our supplies all together this wreath comes a long very quickly.
Now I’ve got a decision to make, when I was putting my wreath together I wasn’t sure if I would like it outside on my black door, I was afraid it would be too much black, but I think I might like it! What do you think, inside on the white door or outside on my black door?I’m so happy with the way this wreath turned out. It always makes me happy when a project turns out just how I had imagined it. This wreath looks spooky enough without being too scary. There are many fun Halloween decorations out there in the stores that you can add to your wreath to make it totally your own and with a little black spray paint it doesn’t matter if it’s not black when you start.
I purchased a lot of these items at the Dollar Store which made my wreath very affordable. The one thing I would recommend about the Dollar Store is if you see something you like get it, because it will probably be gone the next time you are there, the holiday decorations tend to go really fast. I hope this spooky Halloween wreath gives you some inspiration to make a new wreath for Halloween, if you do we’d love to see it so make sure and tag us!
