Haunted House Halloween Wreath

This wreath is sooooo easy to make! You use very few extra items – you are basically dressing up a Halloween wreath and making it your own. The entire craft took about 15 minutes to make.

Notes:

• The size of the wreath you use will depend on the size of the haunted house you choose. Make sure the wreath center is small enough so the haunted house can be closed to the wreath.

• The black feathers used are a crow influence as black crows are big in Halloween decor (I have one in my front hall!)

• You can buy a premade bow instead of making your own.

• You do not have to attach a hanger if you do not want to… door decor instead of door hanger decor.

Haunted House Halloween Wreath Instructions:

• Pick three points of on your wreath to hot glue your haunted house. We chose the right and left side of the house, and the turret at the top of the house.
– This particular house had a place for a candle (there was a candle holder that was accessed from the back). If you’d like to add a small flamless candle inside the haunted house (assuming your haunted house also has the candle holder) that would be a fabulous addition to the wreath!

• Line up the witch’s hat with the roofline of your haunted house.
• Clip off part of the pick so it will not show when hot glued to the wreath.
• Hot glue in place at an angle. Make sure it will fit your door and not be too far out that it will be crushed when you close the door.

• Form a bow from your ribbon (or use a premade bow). This is a small bow as not to be a wreath focus. We used candy corn but spiders, cats, bats, etc will also work. You may also want to consider finding a ribbon in a Halloween color (black, purple, green, orange) that is lacking in your wreath and pick up the color in your ribbon.

Homemade Bountiful Harvest Basket

The point of this fall decoration is over-the-top! More is more!

This is a great fall decoration for someone new to craftings or making flower arrangements as it is very difficult to mess up. This isn’t about height, it is about texture and color. You could stop at nearly any step of these instructions after the gourds are in the baskets (once the foam is covered) and this bountiful harvest basket is going to look complete.

Notes:

Because this is so full and abundant, you also cannot add too much. As long as your picks and gourds are attached and not falling off, layer as many items as you like into your fall harvest basket.

The basket used in this craft is approximately 11″ long, 6″ tall, and 6″ wide. If your basket is smaller or larger it may impact how many materials you use to fill it.

Great places to look for baskets (if you do not have an old one in your basement) is a yard sale, a thrift store, or a consignment shop. You can, of course, hit a local craft store such as Jo-Ann Fabric, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby.

• Cut down (if necessary) your floral foam and hot glue in place. This has a higher front to the floral foam than in the front. We built the floral foam up because our gourds were short. If you have higher gourds, you may not need to build up the front.

• Hot glue gourds in basket on top of the floral foam. You may need to cut down your picks. Once you begin to layer the gourds on top of one another you will need to clip the picks off completely. Make sure you place the gourds before you hot glue just to give yourself an idea of how this will look. Pay special attention to the textures and sizes of the gourds being used.

• Give your basket a little shake to confirm everything is hot glued in place. Since this has layers, things may not be quite as secure as desired.

Shabby Chic Autumn Wreath

If you are looking for new and different fall decorating ideas, this beautiful wreath is unique and distinctive, yet mainstream and timeless. If you are having a shabby chic fall wedding, smaller versions of this would be fabulous on a table as the outline of a centerpiece (candles or tealights in the center!)

The secret is in the colors. It is a muted color wreath, not the sharp yellows, oranges, and reds commonly found in Autumn décor.

Notes:

• This is a quick-to-put-together the wreath. It will take you 30 minutes (probably less).

• The focal point is the pumpkin (you could use another type of gourd if it pleases you). The flowers form a cascade that surrounds the pumpkin. What makes this wreath different is the colors – a light blush rose, a rose gold wreath, lavender, and gray flowers… unexpected, yet traditional. A great juxtaposition of old and new!

• The grapevine wreath is rose gold. If you cannot find a rose gold wreath to purchase, of if you already have a non-rose-gold grapevine wreath laying around in your craft stash, you can always spray paint a grapevine wreath rose gold.

• Hydrangeas can be difficult to work with because they are so massive. It is an excellent flower to use on a grapevine as it provides broad coverage, however, it usually looks better if it is broken up a bit.

• Thistles were used (with a bit of the “wood”) to make the wreath seem more “natural”. Leaving a bit of the stem gives the shabby chic wreath a bit of a “woody” look.

• The ribbon chosen for this wreath is silvery. You can choose grey, rose, lavender, etc. Use what matches your flowers. Pick a rose ribbon for the pale rose blush, a purple ribbon for the hydrangea, or as we chose, a silver ribbon to compliment the entire wreath. Make certain it is a wired ribbon if you are making the bow yourself, and not purchasing a premade bow. Wired ribbon is generally easier to work with. Big, small, or medium bow, any will work with this wreath. It just depends on the look you are seeking.

Shabby Chic Autumn Wreath Materials:

Note: everything on this wreath was purchase at my local craft store last week. Autumn is in-season at your local Jo-Ann Fabric, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby right now!

• 17″ Rose Gold Grapevine Wreath (or Grapevine Wreath + rose gold spray paint)
• Pumpkin (white w/gold accents used)
• Hydrangea Bush (lavender grey used)
• Roses Bush (pale blush used)
• Wired Ribbon (2½” x 12″, silver was used or premade bow)
• Scissors
• Cutters
Glue Gun
• Hot Glue

Shabby Chic Autumn Wreath D‏irections:

• Clip down flowers.

• Separate leaves from hydrangea flowers, reserve the leaves for later (ie, do not toss anything). With a grapevine wreath, it is difficult to hide stems. You may end up doing a double clip – one you “think” will be short enough, then a second clip of the stem that really is short enough! It is tough to hide stems in a grapevine wreath!

• Hot glue pumpkin in place on your grapevine wreath.
• Build the hydrangea flowers around the pumpkin. This is two on the bottom, three on top. The larger hydrangea flowers went to the inside, the smaller flowers went to the outside to compliment the pumpkin and start to form a cascade.
• Add in roses.
• Hot glue flowers in place after you are happy with their placement. Always place items before hot gluing so you can adjust positioning to be more astetically pleasing. You want a cascade of flowers, punctuating the hydrangea flowers with the roses.
