My boring front door looks better with a wreath. I think it’s fun to change wreaths to match the seasons and holidays. Now that Halloween is here, it’s time to make this a simple all-black wreath craft.
Level: Beginner Cost: Less than $15 for supplies. Time: Less than 30 minutes.
What You’ll Need:
- Round craft wreath (10-12 inches)
- Black Duck Tape
- Black flower stems (2-3, depending on how full you want your wreath)
- (2) Large black flower heads
- Black bead stems (2)
- Black Ribbon (about 24 inches)
- Optional: Black Spider or other Halloween accessories
- Hot Glue Gun
- Scissors or wire cutter
- Wrap your round craft wreath with black Duck Tape until it is completely covered.
- Use sharp scissors or a wire cutter cut the black flowers stems where they “separate” from each other on the single stem. (They should be about 6-8 inches long.) I was able to get about 3 to 4 black flower pieces from one stem.
- Bend and shape your flower stems as necessary to get them arranged the way you want them on your round wreath. Use a hot glue gun to attach the stems to the wreath. Once your flowers are on, repeat step 2 with the black bead stems.
- Hot glue the black bead stems onto your wreath. I used them to fill in spaces.
- Pick out where you want the bottom of your wreath to be and hot glue the 2 large flower heads a little bit to the right of center.
- Optional: Hot glue Halloween accessory to wreath (I chose a glittery black spider I found at the craft store and attached it to one of the large black flowers)
- Loop a length of black ribbon (my ribbon was black lace with glitter) through the center of the wreath and tie it at the top. Your wreath is now ready to hang on your door using an over-the-door wreath holder.
