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:

  1. Take a plastic or wooden wreath form and either spray paint of wrap solid black ribbon around the entire loop.
  2. Cut all of your Halloween ribbon into 2-3 inch pieces.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
