Easy Halloween wreath

DSCN0971

We’re breaking out the Halloween decorations for the season. This year, I wanted to add one of the cool feather wreaths I’ve seen floating around the web to one of the interior doors. This little project was easy peasy!

Start with a wire hanger. I’ve been recycling all the dry cleaning hangers and had to search high and low for this pain in the butt blue one. Bend the hanger into a circle – a real circle, not a lopsided one like mine. I’ve learned my lesson…

The boa that I picked up had string loops on either end, so I just looped it up over the top of the hanger. After attaching the feathers, I just wrapped it around the hanger and hooked the other end at the top.

Once you’ve wrapped the feather boa all the way around the hanger, it will look like this:

I decided to add in my favorite Halloween color – purple. I tied bits of these Hay-Lites around the wreath. It looked like this:

I made a little “charm” for this wreath by tracing a witch’s hat out on black foam core and using some mod podge to adhere glitter. (I forgot to take a photo of this step!)

I used a spool of black tool to wrap the top of the hanger and create a bow.

After hanging the wreath up, I decided that the wreath would have looked better with an additional boa…still haven’t decided if I am going to take it down and add to it…

I did make another one over the weekend with my mom. For her wreath, we did use two boas. The little ghost is made out of tulle and a hanger as well.

Terrible photo, but I really love the fluffiness of the new wreath…I do think I am going to have to go back and update mine. *Sigh*

This was a really inexpensive project. The black wreath and purple filler were from the dollar store. I had everything else on hand. I think we paid $4 for the orange boas.

    That is very cute. I need to hire a group of you crafty types to do things for me. I can only pay in hugs and pepsi.

    Soo Cute. I could use a Halloween wreath to spruce up my front door. I really need to get the decorations out but with no little kids around I'm afraid I'm not too motivated. I think a little boa could get me going!

  6. [...] Since last year’s Halloween wreath was made of feathers and glitter, it was pretty apparent a new, spookier wreath was in order. [...]
