Holiday wreaths are a must. They are the icing on the cake for a fully-decorated home. Instead of paying way too much for cheap wreaths that tend to get crushed after one use, make your own in no time using easy-to-find, inexpensive components. Who said scary good has to be scary expensive?

First, remove any unwanted art or hardware from the wooden frame, and coat the front and sides of the frame with orange paint. Once dry, turn the frame upside down, and use a staple gun to attach stretched spider web to each side. Complete the look by gluing a spooky spider in the bottom front corner.

This wreath is for the birds! Begin by drawing a 16-inch circle with an 8-inch string, a pushpin and a pencil. Use the circle as a guide to mockup the sticks in a 16-inch circle, and secure the sticks with floral wire. Once a perfect scraggly circle is achieved, spray all the sticks with black spray paint. Polish off this dark decor with a clip-on crow to make your door spookiest of all.

Materials Needed

  • assorted foam balls
  • green paint
  • black paint
  • foam wreath form
  • toothpicks
  • glue
  • assorted googly eyes

Start by coating all foam balls with bright green paint and coating the wreath form with bold black paint. Once the components are dry, dip toothpicks into glue on each end, and stick into the wreath form. Attach the foam balls to the wreath on the other end of the toothpick. Arrange the foam balls in a varied way to achieve the perfect clustered look. Finish by adding a googly eye to each ball for an extra dose of fright.
