Black and White Witch Wreath DIY

This is simply stunning in person. Again a photography fail by me as good photography would have each and every one of you making this truly special Halloween wreath!

Even though this looks complicated, you can complete this black and white Halloween wreath in about 30 minutes.

Notes:

• Grapevine wreaths can be more difficult to work with as the vines can be pretty close together. If your grapevine wreath painted or natural, and the vines are tight, do not let this frustrate you, simply pull them apart!

• This is is an asymmetrical wreath. If you would like it to be symmetrical, simply buy enough alike picks to make it happen. I honestly think this would be gorgeous completely surrounded with picks, but unless you purchase the materials at 75% off after Halloween, that would cost a fortune!

• You do not have to do black and white. Other Halloween color combinations that would work are black and green, black and purple, black and orange, purple and green, etc.

• If you are going with black and white, check out the Christmas section at your local craft store for a white wreath!

• While this is done on an 18″ wreath, a 16″ wreath would also work. A 14″ wreath would be too small. If you can find a larger hat than a pick, you could increase the wreath size to 20″ (but only with a larger hat).

Black and White Witch Wreath DIY Directions:

• Cut down your picks. Because you are working with a grapevine wreath some of the picks may be cut off completely. Your best bet is to do two cutes – one short, and a second cut that is either shorter or off completely.

• Hot glue the hat and the feet to the grapevine wreath. These feet were hot glued straight out. If you are hanging this between a storm door and your house door, position the feet so they lay flat.
• The hat is slightly off center as this is an asymmetrical wreath. Make the wreath off-center to the side where you plan a lighter build up of pumpkin picks.

• Build the pumpkins up the wreath starting from the bottom of your wreath. You want this heaviest at the bottom, un-clumped, and pay attention to the textures, sizes, and patterns of the pumpkins you choose to use. Build higher on the side without the hat.
• Hot glue each pumpkin in place.
• Add in pom poms to break up the pumpkins.

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.

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.
