Sometimes what I put into my Halloween decorations box is not what I take out the next year. When I dug into m Halloween Decorations (just today… I’ve been busy!) I was very excited to use a black wreath that I’d tucked in there last year. I found the wreath for dirt cheap a couple of days after Halloween last year and tossed it in the box for future use.
When I pulled it out, however, I found it to be flat and lack luster. It was just plain black with nothing to make it pop. So, I made a last minute trip to the dollar store and spruced it into a wreath I’ll be proud to hang on my door for all the trick or treaters to see.
What I used:
- Black Wreath (on hand)
- Spooky eyeballs ($1)
- Black Crow ($1)
- Halloween Ribbon ($1)
- Wire (on hand)
How I Made It:
- I knew that I wanted to put the eyeballs all over the wreath, but they had no way to affix them to the wreath. So, I poked a hole on either side of every one. Using the hole, I threaded a piece of wire through and used that to attach to the wreath.
- Using a similar method, I affixed the crow to the bottom center.
- Finally, I made a fluffy bow out of the $1 ribbon and used the wire to cinch it to the bottom of the wreath.
- That’s it! The whole thing took me less than 20 minutes (not counting the shopping.) After I had it all done, I found a string of battery powered orange LEDs. I decided to throw those on there too. ;D
