Simple & Stylish Halloween Wreath
Halloween is right around the corner and there is no better way to make your house welcoming to trick-or-treaters than with a Halloween-themed wreath! I don’t have children of my own yet so I look forward to trick-or-treaters coming to our house every year. We don’t get a ton of kid traffic in our neighborhood but that just means that each time our doorbell rings it is all-the-more exciting.
I gathered all of my materials for this simple wreath from the dollar tree and all of the supplies came to a grand total of $7! I find that you have hit the dollar tree when their seasonal supplies first come out. Otherwise, they run out and are typically selling for the next coming holiday before you have a chance to even decorate for the current one.
1 package Chenille or Tinsel Stems (aka sparkly pipe cleaners)
4 rolls Decorate Mesh in colors of choice (I used 2 rolls of black, 2 rolls of orange)
9 ft of Halloween themed wire-edge ribbon (I chose an orange ribbon with black edging)
- Cut approximately 24 tinsel stems in half. Attach stems to metal wreath form evenly in a staggered pattern all over the wreath. You can do this all at once at the beginning or you can attach about half at first and then add them as you see you need them.
- Unwind first decorative mesh roll and create a 3″ loop at the end of the roll.
- Secure loop to wreath form by twisting a chenille stem around the loop with two twists.
- Approximately 6 inches from your loop, bunch and secure mesh at the next twist tie to create another wave or loop that is approximately 3 inches high. Repeat until at the end of the roll.
- Create a loop at the end of the roll and secure by twisting a chenille stem around the loop twice.
- Repeat with the next 3 rolls of mesh, alternating colors and alternating which chenille stems you use to secure the mesh. You don’t have to be perfectly consistent with how you take the mesh around the wreath. It just important that you fill all the holes and try to make the loops approximately the same height.
- Cut 12 inch pieces of ribbon. Fold and cut then ends at an angle to create a fish tail on each end. Attach them around the wreath with twist ties by twisting the tie 2 times at the center of the ribbon. You can use the twist ties that are already holding mesh on your wreath.
**If you have never made a deco mesh wreath before and find your self struggling (like I was), check out all of the great video tutorials on YouTube. I found it was very helpful to watch someone make one. I also found that you don’t need to stress over this because as long as you fill on all the holes, it will look great.
Whether you are well-practiced or this is your first deco mesh wreath, you will love the result of this easy DIY project. Share this post to give others an idea of how they can add some tasteful Halloween decor to their home!
