It has come to my attention that the Halloween Wreath that I made a few years ago has become a recent popular Pin on Pinterest. It's just rounding the bend to 500 pins! WOW! This was an absolute favourite project of mine, and it was ridiculously easy to make. I thought I would break it down gently here for all to share in the fun. All the ingredients were purchased at Michaels except for the velour fabric which I happen to have on hand but could be picked up from a fabric shop easily.
What You Need:
:: Wreath Form (straw ones are cheapest)
:: Velour/Velvet Fabric
:: Fake Black Flowers
:: Foam Skull
:: Decorative Ribbon
:: Glue gun
:: Basting Pins
1. Cut the fabric into a long strip(s), pin your starting point in the back and start wrapping it around in a way that is pleasing to you. Fold over the final edge once you've made it around and pin it in place. I find pins are much easier and much more secure than gluing the fabric at this point.
2. Cut the flowers to the length of stems that you would prefer. Mine had leaves on them and long stems so I trimmed them down to how I wanted them and I played with different looks all around the wreath to find the spacing that I wanted. Once I was happy with how it looked with the skull in place I glued all the flowers in place. Once the flowers were dry and secure, I glued the skull on.
3. Cut the decorative ribbon, or fabric if you prefer to your liking and tie it up for hanging.
Here's a few more wreaths that I discovered on Pinterest that caught my eye and my inspiration for this Halloween. I feel a little bit of Beetlejuice in all of them. YUM!
