Halloween Wreath

Halloween Wreath

This is my Halloween Wreath that I just finished last night.


This Stampin Up! Holiday Mini Catalog was my inspiration. I thought their wreath was so cute I just had to make one. If you'd like to see this catalog better, click here.


  I found this wreath at the DI for $2. I originally bought a foam one at the local craft store for $6, but that one went back when I found this one. It was decorated when I bought it, but I just took all that off.




  I had a bunch of black material in my sewing supplies. I got it from Walmart and it was their cheapest stuff.

  I cut a bunch of 3 inch strips of black fabric and sewed them all together so I had a really long strip. Sorry, I never measured the length.


  I then gathered the fabric with my sewing machine. I start with a regular stitch at the very end to the gather won't come out. Then I change the tension on my machine so it will gather the material as I go. **When using this long of a strip you might want to stop every so often and use a regular stitch to secure the gather as you go.


  I wrapped the wreath in black fabric and hot glued it in place.


  Then I wrapped the wreath in the gathered fabric strips securing it with hot glue.


  I made different sized fabric pom pom flowers with two different types of purple fabric. I found the fabric at the local craft store in their Halloween fabric. It's pretty expensive fabric at $9 a yard, but I only purchase 3/8 of a yard and ended up using aprox. 1/4 a yard of each fabric. I would have purchased fat quarters instead, but they didn't have the colors I wanted.


  I made the pom pom flowers different sizes by using differing size circles. Here is a great tutorial at With a Cherry On Top blog


I knew I wanted a skull on my wreath, but I wanted the eyes to glow, so I poked holes in the eyes with a pen & gutted out the bottom so an electrical tea light could fit in the bottom. This skull was $1 from Dollar Tree.


  This is what the bottom looks like with the tea light in it. The electrical tea lights are from Dollar tree and are 2 for $1. They're cool too because they flicker like candles.


  I secured the skull to the wreath with wire.


  Then I made this BEWARE sign with chipboard & glitter. I had black chipboard on hand and I cut it into a cool shape & covered it in black glitter & I painted the letters purple and covered them in purple glitter.

I assembled the entire thing using hot glue on the pom pom flowers & sign and this is the end result. I'm lovin it!
