We originally posted this wreath in September 2019, but thought we'd share it again as it is so cute, fun and easy to make. I'll add some new links to the Dollar Tree website with some fun things you can add to your wreath! Just because we're still in Covid quarantine fun times, doesn't mean we have to give up on decorating for our favorite holidays! Enjoy!
Recently, when Maddy and I took a trip to DollarTree, we found so many spooky and idea inspiring products for Fall and specifically for Halloween! When I saw these sparkly, light-up owls, I knew that I wanted to put one on a wreath for my door. (The owls aren't available anymore but they do have cute jack-o-lanterns that light up! )
I started with this mesh ribbon in orange and purple. There is even instructions inside the label to use it for a wreath. I'll show you my way and how I blinged it out!
1 Wire Wreath Form
4 rolls mesh decorative
1 package chenille stems
items to decorate your wreath; 3 larger ones and some small spiders.
1 Glue gun and hot glue
To begin, use pipe cleaners cut in half to form the mesh bows and attach them to the wreath. Click on the pictures below to see how I formed the bows.
I alternated the orange and purple colors around the wreath to fill it out. The mesh poofs out really nicely to give a fuller effect.
As you can see, I used 3 large items and then some small spiders to decorate the wreath. Besides the owl, I used:
The owl, the skull and the lantern all had their light switches on the bottom so that they are easy to switch on when I want the wreath to light up. I attached them with a glue gun, smooshing them down against the wire wreath form. Then, I also tied them on with black thread to add extra support. I simply glued on the spiders.
Et, VOILA! A fun and spooky wreath all ready for Halloween! It was inexpensive and looks pretty great if I say so myself!
If you aren't into owls, skulls or lanterns, Dollar Tree has a ton of items to choose from! Let me know what you use!
