I searched high and low this year for a Halloween-themed wreath this year. I found lots of fall and plastic wreaths but not a simple, classic Halloween one. So I made my own.
I started with these materials…
-circle styrofoam wreath -4 different kinds of halloween fabric
-lots of straight pins -3 yards of ribbon
Step One: Wrap wreath with ribbon. My ribbon was trimmed with wire so it was easier to mold into position. Secured it as needed with the straight pins. I love straight pins.
Step Two: Cut my fabric into strips about an inch wide and 3 inches long. Go ahead and sit down, it takes awhile.
Step Three: Twist and pin your pieces sporadically on the wreath.
I twisted in the middle and stuck the pin right through the middle. Some pieces I had to use more than one pin or used a lid to push it through a thick piece.
After an hour of twisting and pinning it began to look like this. I didn’t follow any pattern. If it looked like I needed more orange in spot or more white, I added it.
Make sure your go at least halfway around on either side of the wreath so you can see fabric from any angle. I personally like the filled in look better.
And ta-da! You have a lovely fabric wreath for your front door. Or back door. Whatever door you want.
