Halloween Wreath

I LOVE to decorate for the holidays and Halloween is no expectation! The only thing is, I like cute and fun Halloween decorations. Not the typical blood, guts, and skulls stuff. So when I came across this super cute Halloween Wreath I just knew I had to make it. I did do a couple things different, but it still turned out great!

Items Needed:

12” Wreath

1 1/2” Ribbon (18 foot spool)

Multiple 3/8” & 5/8” matching ribbon (appx. 900/1000” total)                                                               

3 and 1 Numbers                                                     

Glitter Paint                                                                   

Hot glue gun                                                              

Extra ribbon to hang wreath (appx. 2 feet)                               


1. Wrap 1 1/2” ribbon around your wreath (I found this ribbon in the clearance bin at Joann’s for $1).Pictures 15532. Cut the 3/8” & 5/8” ribbon into 5” sections. (I did cut a few 4.5” sections to use on the inside of my wreath).  Most of my ribbon was bought at the $1 Tree and in the $1 section of Target.Pictures 1551 3. Fold ribbon in half and sew together, making a long strip.Pictures 15574. Now cut between each ribbon, separating them from the strip.Pictures 15585. Open the bottom of your sewn piece and apply hot glue. Then place on your wreath. Work in small sections till you fill the wreath. Pictures 15596. Paint your numbers using glitter paint (next time I’ll apply an undercoat so I don’t have to apply so many coats of the glitter paint).     P90601757. Once the numbers are dried glue to the front of your wreath. Then turn over and glue matching ribbon onto the back of the wreath as the hanging ribbon. You can simply loop the wreath through the ribbon but I didn’t like how it smashed the front ribbon.P90601738. Now hang your SUPER CUTE Halloween wreath!!P9060179
