DIY Halloween Wreath

by | Halloween DIYs | 0 comments

I love the Nightmare Before Christmas, but can’t seem to find many themed decorations that I like. So I decided to make this wreath for Halloween…it came out better than I expected! I must say, im pretty proud of this one! I had a lot of the items needed for this project on hand, so it was super cheap to make too!
Every holiday deserves a wreath and they are so easy to make that you really should have one for Halloween. You can hang wreaths on the front door or just anywhere that you want a little extra spook going on.

YOU WILL NEED:

Expanded polystyrene wreath
Black paint for fabric and brush
Threads and needles
Scissors
A simple pencil
Beads

Black ribbon
Black yarn or twine
Black fabric
White fabric is cut into a strip or tape 4cm. wide
Hot glue

INSTRUCTIONS:

Wrap the tape around the wreath and fix it with hot glue. Then, Attach the black yarn at the back of the wreath and begin wrapping the yarn around the wreath.

Grab a circular object in your house and trace it onto your fabric. Then use a ruler to trace a 1cm. seam allowance and cut it out.

Now it’s time to put my sewing machine to work! Sew the two circles together and make sure to leave an opening so that you can turn the circle inside out. If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can also hand-stitch, use fabric glue, or use a glue gun. After you are done, turn the circle inside out, then stuff your pillow with polyfil . Stitch the opening closed by hand or use a hot glue to seal up the last opening!

Once I was done with the face I went ahead and started to hot glue everything onto the wreath. The last thing to do was to make the Jack inspired bow to go on my wreath. Create a bow with black ribbon. Attach Jack’s head and the bow to the wreath. Glue a loop of yarn to the back of the wreath at the top, to use as a hanger.

Happy Haunting!
