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.

DIY Spooky Spider Halloween Wreath

This is a minimalist wreath idea, but the look is not sleek. This wreath uses black on black with a bit of white to break things up. Holiday decor doesn’t get any easier than this fun spider wreath. It is 4 items (plus glue gun), is ready in no time flat, and there is almost no way to screw it up.

In addition to a Halloween wreath idea, this also works as a Harry Potter Forbidden Forest idea (for a Harry Potter party).

Notes:

You are taking a black wreath – look for a wreath with built-in overlay such as black leaves, black spiders, webs, skulls, etc. A simple black wreath with no overlay will also work as you can buy black garland to make your own depth (try Michaels or Party City). We used leaves to tell of a windy, spooky night.

If you cannot make a bow, buy one! They are fairly inexpensive at Jo-Ann Fabric, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby. If you are lucky, you may even be able to find one at a dollar store.

The spider used on this wreath is actually an ornament. We just cut off the hanger. You can use any black/white/sliver/clear spider you would like. If you cannot find a spider with some depth (jeweled, white on black, a crystal – Michaels is usually the best for these), and have an old brooch, or necklace, you could remove the chain and use that.

Everything flows outward on this wreath. 40+ years ago I took a journalism magazine class, and was taught that flowing-out looks best to the naked eye (that is why you see only white space on the outter edges of a magazine or newspaper, not in the middle). The same princpal follows here. The built-in leaves (or wrapped garland) on the black wreath are pulled outward to extend the wreath, as well as help the outward flow.

To make the DIY Spooky Spider Halloween Wreath you will need these materials (or something close). The easy to follow instructions follow. The printable instructions are at the end of this post.

• Stretch some spider webbing across the wreath. You “should” be able to use the leaves (skulls, spiders) that were built in (or on your garland) to hold the webbing. If that is not working out, glue a few edges in place. The more you work with your web (taffy-pulling it), the more “realistic” it will look. You do not want your web too stringy.

I was not kidding when I said this is a 15 minute craft project that nearly anyone can do. It is inexpensive, spooky, and yet whimsical at the same time. This one is so easy that if your wreath comes with the premade overlay and you buy a premade bow, older children can put this together (provided you watch over them while they hot glue).

Halloween Haunted House Ideas:

• Measure the glitter branch against the height of your foam house. You may have to poke a hole into the foam where you want to place the glitter branch.
• Place a dab of hot glue over the hole.
• Glue a branch (or two or three) around your house.
• Place a scrap of foam on one side of the branch, and a second piece of foam on the other side (to form a branch-sandwich). Glue the small foam piece in place. This will support the glitter branch.
