Holiday wreaths most definitely don’t have to be reserved only for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Halloween wreaths can be just as festive and when you’re creating your own, there’s a lot of room for creativity. If you pour your heart and soul into your craft projects, then you might the right candidate for making a Halloween ribbon wreath.
Here’s what you need:
– A variety of Halloween ribbon (You need a lot: about 50 yards)
– A plastic or wooden wreath form from the dollar or craft store.
– Hot glue gun.
– Black spray paint or wide black ribbon
– Metal rings
Here’s how you do it:
- Take a plastic or wooden wreath form and either spray paint of wrap solid black ribbon around the entire loop.
- Cut all of your Halloween ribbon into 2-3 inch pieces.
- Take you hot glue gun, and glue the ribbon into a loop by putting one dot near the bottom. The ends of the loop should spread out so you can glue those to the wreath later.
- Once you have done this with all of your ribbon, start hot gluing the ribbon to the wreath. Open the ends of the ribbon, put a bit of hot glue on the ends and place on the wreath.
- When you are gluing the ribbons on the wreath, they should be very close together, so your wreath is nice and full when it’s completed.
- If you want to, you can add to your wreath by putting hot gluing letter onto your wreath to spell out “boo,” for example. You can also take a Halloween knick-knack that you have around your house and secure it to your wreath.
- Use two metal rings for crafts and secure them to the back of the wreath so that you can hang the wreath up on hooks or nails.
