Eerie DIY Halloween Wreath

I loved making this wreath! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  I used to plan my costume months in advance.  Now that I have a daughter, we take her trick-or-treating every year so I rarely dress up.  In lieu of my obsession for Halloween costumes, I now put my creativity into the decorations! Here is how I made my eerie DIY Halloween wreath.

Materials:

  • Grape Vine Wreath
  • Gauze
  • Craft Letters (ours spell “eek”)
  • Black Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Rhinestones and Rhinestone Stickers
  • Small Plastic Halloween Skull
  • Feathers
  • Hot Glue and Glue Sticks

Instructions:

First I covered my grape vine wreath with the gauze I had.  I purchased the gauze in the Halloween section of the dollar store.

I found these feather bunches on sale at Jo-Ann’s for less than $2.00 a piece in the floral department… score!

I added them to the bottom right of the wreath.

Meanwhile, my daughter Mia painted the EEK letters black on both sides.

Once they were dry, I added pre-made rhinestone cluster stickers to each letter to go with my glam theme this year (check out my glam skulls!).

Next, I thought this little guy needed some bling too…

So I added a couple rhinestones in his eyes and on his forehead.  Much better!

I glued the skull in the center of the feathers…

…and glues the EEK letters on the top right.

Tah dah!  There you have it…my eerie DIY Halloween wreath. Mia is a little scared to walk by it!
