Halloween Wreath

Use this step by step picture tutorial to learn how to make a Halloween Wreath.

Halloween Wreath
I made this cute black burlap Halloween wreath and it is so easy to make and the turn out stinkin cute! {see my Christmas version here}

Halloween Wreath Tutorial

  • 1.25 yards of black burlap cut into 1″x16″ strips {i used a rotary cutter, but if you want to prevent most of the loose strands, you could use this burlap cutting technique.}
  • 14″ foam wreath ring
  • black paint {i used craft paint, but spray paint would work, too}
  • scissors or rotary cutter
 paint your wreath ring black to hide the green under the burlap.
 when the paint dries, tie the burlap strips around the ring with a double knot.
 overlap the strips a little and bunch them together so you have a full wreath.keep adding strips and arranging until you like the overall look of the wreath.
*note: if you have to untie a strip, don’t plan to use it again. the burlap will basically be shredded.*
 embellish with your SPOoKIEST finds.
i used wooden letters, painted them black, and then mod podged Halloween paper to them.

 and there you have one easy, fun Halloween wreath!
sorry for all the super early Halloween posts, but i really want Halloween to come quickly because that means the baby will be here!! :o)

*Davis told me to take my Boo wreath down today. he said people would think i was weird for having it up so early. hehehe it made me laugh!*>added later: In regards to how I attached the Wood BOO letters to the wreath, I simply hot glued them on. To do that, I pulled the ends of the burlap ties back so that I could hot glue the letters to the flat portion of the burlap ties that go around the wreath form. I glued in several different spots to secure the letters.<

    If I paint it orange & use orange burlap then I can switch the Thanksgiving stuff for Hallowe'en. (Canadian Thanksgiving is in mid-October). Thanks for the idea!
