Let this wreath welcome guests to your home from Halloween until Thanksgiving.

I love creating something that serves more than one purpose. For this craft, I wanted to create a wreath that I could hang on my front door for Halloween and yet be elegant enough to serve double duty on the Thanksgiving table. With just two ribbon switches, this wreath has my front door needs covered all the way until Thanksgiving. Once Thanksgiving arrives, the wreath transforms into a lovely centerpiece. Simply remove the ribbon and add a vase and candle. Simple, elegant and most of all stress-free decorating at its best! 

I found these lovely dried floral pods at my local craft store.

The kids joined me in making this craft. As I applied the glue, they decided where to place the pods. The entire craft took about an hour to complete.

Supplies:

  • An 18-inch straw wreath
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Dried floral pods
  • Ribbons
  • Candle 
  • Glass vase

A Wreath Three Ways

With a few simple changes, this wreath can adorn your door from Halloween through Thanksgiving. From the door to the table, this wreath has you covered.

Round Up Your Supplies

To make the wreath, you will need: An 18" straw wreath/ decorative floral pods/a hot glue gun

Apply the Glue

Add a bit of glue to the bottom of each seed pod and adhere it to the wreath.

Like a Puzzle

Continue to glue seed pods to the wreath. Use assorted sized pods to fit them as closely together as possible, much like a puzzle.

Layer 'Em Up

In the areas where the wreath still shows through, glue on additional pods for a layered look.

Black and White

Hang this wreath from your front door with a black and white striped ribbon to usher in Halloween. Then change out the ribbon to one with fall colors until Thanksgiving.

From the Door to the Table

Place the wreath in the center of the Thanksgiving table and add a decorative glass vase with a candle for the perfect holiday centerpiece.
