Spooktacular Halloween Wreath

October 18, 2019 By Taina Laraba

Do you know the difference between a Spooktacular Halloween Wreath and just a Halloween wreath? There is a difference you know!

This is a Spooktacular Halloween Wreath

With all it's glorious beauty in the cob web, black crow, black roses and hints of spooky fall decor seen in orange - like the scarecrow standing out in the middle of a pasture through rain and high tarantula winds.

And this is a wreath that we're going to be making here today!

Now if you don't have your crafty pants on today, it can wait till tomorrow - just come back to read all about it.

I'm almost 100% sure that all these materials can be bought at the Dollar Tree. The only exception is the grapevine wreath. The Dollar Tree has wreaths that are more wicker like and rather small.

So what you will need to make this from the Dollar Tree are:

  • Black spider web
  • Medium Styrofoam balls
  • Black roses
  • Metallic leaves
  • Orange branch like foliage
  • Black crow

What you'll need from your favorite craft store:

  • Gold acrylic paint
  • Orange spray paint
  • Fine Silver Glitter
  • Hot glue gun and glue

Step 1. We'll first paint a few things here. First spray paint your Styrofoam balls with orange spray paint, then sprinkle glitter over the paint and allow to dry. You can also plug in your glue gun now.

You'll also spray paint your grapevine wreath in black and allow to dry.

Step 2. Once dry, draw a similar pattern on them with your glue gun like shown in the photo above. Almost like a cob web pattern. Draw one line at a time and sprinkle glitter over the hot glue. Continue drawing your pattern on each ball till it's complete. Then make your three other balls. Then put these to the side.

Step 3. Attach the cob web to the wreath. You can do this by laying your piece of cob web over the back of the wreath and trimming off the excess. Then just tack the cob web in place with a few dots of hot glue.

Step 4. Glue your glitter leaves to one side of the wreath like shown.

Step 5. Glue your orange branch like foliage into the wreath on the same side like shown.

Step 6. Remove the heads from your roses and glue onto your wreath like shown on the same side you've been working on.

Step 7. Now take your orange Styrofoam balls and glue them in between your roses.

Step 8. Take a bit of gold paint with your paint brush and just dab the tops of the rose petals.

Step 9. Now the final piece, glue your cute little crow facing the bare side.

What do you think? Is it gorgeous or what? Perfect decor for your front door!

So which wreath do you think is Spooktacular for Halloween?
