Halloween Wreath Tutorial

You can make a Halloween wreath in under 15 minutes and for less than $12.00 using some basic materials ~ if I made it….anyone can!

I was out at a local craft store and saw a wall filled with the most colorful Halloween wreaths.  I usually assume I can’t make these {wreath~making and floral arranging are NOT my strong suits} but in this case, they were just too cute to not give it a shot.

Materials needed:

1.   The base of the wreath is a basic straw wreath.

2.  To this you add ‘poufs’ of color using floral mesh {I used Expressions Floral Mesh in apple/green lime}.

3.  Metal floral pins.

4.  Purple glitter spiders, a black bat and a little orange sign.

First, I cut a length of the floral mesh to cover the base of the wreath just as a fill for uniformity.  This was folded in half.

Second, I covered the base of the wreath with the mesh and kept it in place with the floral pins.

Third, your base is complete and ready for the fun part!

Fourth, I pulled a few feet of mesh off of the roll and pinch gathered the end and attached this to the wreath base.

Fifth, I worked my way around the wreath, pinching and gathering the mesh, poufing it out and attaching to the base at equal intervals.

When that was complete, I attached my glitter spiders, bat and little sign and that was it!
