How to make a Halloween wreath
You will need:
- A twiggy wreath ring – this one from Amazon makes for a great base
- Florist wire – this green florist wire from Amazon is the subtlest
- Ribbon – we like this selection of fall colored-ribbons from Amazon
- Halloween decorations – this Halloween decor pack includes bird, bat and spider decos
- Halloween bird – this 10-pack will allow you to dot more birds around the yard and house
1. Start with a base twig layer
Wire some twigs to a twig wreath base. Start at the bottom pointing the branches outwards from the wreath, working up and around, leaving a gap at the top. Ours were painted black for extra spooky styling.
2. Bring in berries and leaves
Add in berries and dried foliage, starting from the bottom and working your way around the wreath until you have even coverage.
3. Work up the coverage
Work the stems and berries up and around the wreath leaving a gap at the top.
4. Add a faux bird
Wire in a faux bird to the bottom of the wreath. Position so the bird is looking into the wreath to draw the eye.
5. Add further spooky style
Attach miniature bats by wiring onto wreath. Pepper them throughout the wreath for good coverage.
6. Bring the finishing touches
Attach a wreath bow and hang in your chosen spooky setting
