The fall season and upcoming holiday season offer many opportunities for dressing up your doors with wreaths. Halloween is no exception, but finding orange materials as a base for your wreath can be tricky.

We have found a possible solution in tow rope. Wrapping your wreath frame in tow rope creates the perfect backdrop for Halloween themed decorations. As a bonus, the tow rope makes an excellent hanger.

What you will need:

  • Styrofoam wreath frame
  • Orange tow rope (75 to 100 feet depending on size of wreath frame)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Artificial leaves
  • Mini artificial pumpkins
  • White spray paint
  • Vinyl adhesive letters

Follow these easy steps to make your own wreath:
