I’m so excited that fall is just around the corner – not just for cooler weather but also for all the fun decorating! This weekend my parents were visiting and brought a giant bag full of Halloween decorations from my sister. Part of it included Halloween garland and mom had a great idea to use it for making a Halloween wreath. This project only cost around $5 because I got a wreath frame from Hobby Lobby with a 40% coupon.
Here’s what I started with (minus the two rolls of ribbon):
Luckily, the wreath came with wire wraps to use to attach the garland to. Before adding anything to the wreath frame, I positioned the wire wraps to the inside and out side of the wreath like this…
The next step was to start wrapping the garland around the frame. I started on the outside and once I made it all the way around, I started wrapping it in the middle of the frame and back and forth until I used up all of the first type of garland…
Here’s what my wreath looked like so far with the wire tie thingies still sticking up.
I had one more type of garland to add and used it to add depth to the wreath. Thanks for the idea mom!
I ended up keeping the wire ties sticking up to add more interest and am happy with how it turned out. 🙂 Soon I’ll be taking down the Patriotic wreath, just after Memorial Day, and putting up this fun one. Here’s a preview! I can’t wait for fall decor!
Get ready! Fall decoration will be exploding all over my house soon! Eeee!
