October DIY: Mini Halloween Wreath

About two weeks ago I posted a DIY Black Crow Wreath and I thought I would share another, smaller wreath that I’ve made. This is one that I made last year but I had the supplies to make more because I was making these to sell. I did not actually make another so there isn’t pictures of me going through the process but it’s extremely simple. I’ll walk you through it step by step. I got all of the supplies, except for the hot glue gun and scissors, at the Dollar Tree but similar can be found anywhere. Even if you have to buy scissors and a hot glue gun this wreath shouldn’t cost over $10.00.

Supplies Needed

  • Small, foam wreath frame.
  • Decorative beads, mine are styrofoam.
  • Hot glue gun with glue sticks.
  • Scissors.
  • One or two types of ribbon, your choice.
  • Decorative ghost, pumpkin, witch, etc.

As you can see, on my wreath I used two different types of ribbon. You can do that or just use one, it doesn’t matter. You are going to wrap the wreath frame in the ribbon. Put hot glue on the ribbon end, press it onto the wreath, loop the ribbon around the wreath, hot glue it again and repeat until the wreath is covered. This is a tedious step but it’s important to glue each section of ribbon or it will be too loose. It doesn’t have to be perfectly neat at the bottom because that’s where you’ll be gluing the beads. Once you’re done gluing the ribbon around the wreath, cut a section of ribbon, make a loop, glue the bottom inside of the ribbon to the wreath. This will be what holds your wreath so make sure that it’s as long as you want it and is glued well so that the wreath won’t fall when hanging.

Next, glue your beads onto the bottom half. I did mine just halfway up but it would also look good covered in beads. I just didn’t have the patience for that, haha. After the beads, glue on whatever figure you’ve chosen. This can be a little tricky because the wreath isn’t that wide so you’ll need to use A LOT of glue to hold it in place.

And that’s it! This would be a great project to do with kids, if you have the patience. I’d love to know if you like this and if you enjoy seeing DIYs from me. This isn’t a DIY blog and never will be because I’m not that talented, haha, but I do enjoy doing them every once in awhile. Thank you for reading and have a great day!
