If you can’t find everything included, fear not! I’ve listed alternative ways you can create the spooky effect with basic materials and the templates in my template section. Have fun making this ghoulish wreath and do let me know how it goes!
Step-by-step photos are below to help you along. Enjoy!
|Spooky Halloween Wreath|
- 1 brown twiggy Wreath
- 1 Can White Spray Paint
- 1 Black Autumn Leaves Garland, OR regular leaves garland you paint black OR cutout paper leaves from my templates section in black paper
- 1 Pack Halloween Cobwebs
- 1 Pack Mini Pumpkins
- Few sheets of newspaper; the painting bit can get messy!
- Lay down the sheets of newspaper and place your wreath on top. Shake the can of paint well and at a distance spray quickly over the wreath. You want to get a ‘dusty’ effect rather than a ‘snowy’ effect so be light with the white paint quickly.
- With the leaves, wrap the garland around the circular wreath. Alternatively, you can adhere the leaves with a hot glue gun.
- Similarly, stick the mini pumpkins on your wreath and weave the cobwebs over and around your black leaves.
- Place your wreath on your front door in time for Halloween!
If you can’t get hold of the Autumn Leaves, Cobwebs and Pumpkins you can make them yourself.
For the Autumn Leaves: Print off my Autumn Leaf Template in the templates section and with a strong card or sturdy fabric like leather, cut out your leaves. You can add the vein-leaf effect with a contrasting coloured pen.
For the cobwebs: Take a small square of wadding and with your fingers gently pull it apart and with scissors cut small holes throughout. Drape over your wreath to get the full cobweb effect!
For the pumpkins: I recommend using orange card. Print off my pumpkin template onto orange card. Cut along the slits and stick each length together to create a pumpkin shape. Adhere these to your wreath with hot glue.
