spooky halloween wreath

Today is the first day of October and I’ve got my Halloween wreath finished and hanging!  I can’t promise you won’t poke an eye out when you walk up to the door with all the sticks coming out of it, but hey, that just adds to the Halloween spirit, right???

I shared with you guys a round up of my favorite Halloween wreaths earlier this week, and I ended up combining a lot of those into one simple wreath.  Spooky (but not too spooky for the kids), neutral and earthy, and maybe even a little chic with the satin bow.  And I still stuck with my Halloween rule – If you add moss and a crow, you’re good to go.  Trust me on this!  
This was easy and fairly cheap to toss together.  Although I didn’t put together a full up tutorial, here’s what I did:
  • Start with a plain grapevine wreath
  • Wrap some faux leaf garland around the wreath (I found mine at Michaels on sale for like $3).
  • Hot glue twigs from your yard to the wreath.
  • Drape Spanish moss over the twigs and into the crannies of the wreath.
  • Run a strip of ribbon around the top for hanging and add a bow (I used strips of black stain fabric).
  • Slap on a faux crow on for good measure!

I had forgotten what I did to our door last year until I found this photo below.  I didn’t have a wreath so I pulled this webbed look together in just a couple of minutes using cheese cloth and a big ‘ol fake spider.  Since I know not all of your are wreath people, I thought I’d include it 😉

    Love your wreath! Its a combination of fall and Halloween. Perfect. I'm just getting into Thanksgiving mode (next weekend!) and then I'll gear up for Halloween. Can't wait to decorate my door, I've purchased some bats, spiders and rats!

    That's adorable! I had a crow taped to a pumpkin on our second floor flowerbox in our last house. My kids and all of the neighborhood kids loved it. You just never know what will peak their interest!
