I can’t believe it’s almost Halloween! I don’t do much Halloween decor (like any) at this point, but I always like to update our front door wreath for each season. My old grapevine wreath (which you can see here, here and here) finally bit the dust so it was time for something new. Our front door is not under any sort of covering so whatever is out the door is very open to the elements. Because of this, I don’t like to spend a ton of money on wreaths as they are likely to be ruined. Instead, I headed to Hobby Lobby and the Dollar Tree for supplies to create this 10-minute Halloween wreath for around $10.
- Grapevine wreath: I picked this up from Hobby Lobby and with a 40% off coupon, I think it was around $5 or maybe even less.
- Black glitter wired ribbon: Wired ribbon is key for pretty bows. Again, I hit up Hobby Lobby when ribbon was 50% off and purchased 6 yards for $2.50.
- Sign: Dollar Tree always has cute glitter signs for various holidays. I liked this wicked with one the best (even though the Wizard of Oz gave me nightmares as a kid) and it looked great with the black ribbon.
- Floral wire
Step 1: Create a bow using black ribbon and floral wire. Check my tutorial for easy bow making here.
Step 2: Wrap the ribbon around the grapevine wreath. Either secure with a knot or floral wire.
Step 3: Add a small piece of ribbon around the top of the wreath for hanging. Alternatively, you can use a piece of wire.
Step 4: Secure sign to wreath with floral wire. Since the sign already had a ribbon, I threaded some floral wire through the ribbon and around a few of the branches on the wreath.
Step 5: Attach bow with floral wire. Wrap the floral wire around the wreath to secure and hide any other knots/wire as necessary.
Step 6: Hang on door … and pat yourself on the back for creating a quick DIY Halloween wreath!
How do you decorate for Halloween? Do you go all out or only add a few touches?
