Halloween Wreath

Look at this fun Halloween Wreath! It's so cute! It's super simple to make too. 

Here's a closer shot of it....

Here are a list of the things you need to make it.
  • A Green Metal Wire Wreath Form
  • Orange Deco Mesh (metallic adds a little extra shimmer), about 21 inches wide (10 yards)
  • Black Deco Mesh, about 5 1/2 inches wide on spool (10 yards)
  • Black pipe cleaners
  • Black bead embellishment (necklaces)
  • Plastic spider rings, various colors

Here is a picture of the wire form... These are available in a variety of sizes and can be purchased at almost any craft store.

Here's the orange deco mesh. It measures 21 inches by 10 yards. There is a fun metallic shimmer in the mesh that adds more dimension as well as some sparkle and zing. This way you get twice as much orange as black as you wrap it through the wire wreath form. The orange can be folded in half and then the black added as you start to fill up your wreath.

Here's the black mesh. There are varying size and depending on the size of your wreath will determine how much you need. But the rolls usually each have at least 10 yards and that should be enough for most sizes (plus it will vary if you make it super duper puffy). This wreath black mesh measures about 5 1/2 inches wide and didn't use as much of this as the orange.

Okay... here's where the black pipe cleaners come in. First cut the pipe cleaner into 3 to 4 inch pieces. Start by attaching the mesh to the wire wreath with some black pipe cleaner twisted around. Then start puffing and poofing the mesh and when you're ready for another junction point add the pipe cleaner again.

I found it easier to deal with the two layers of mesh first and then come back with the black beads and add them. But you can do all three layers at the same time if you want. The beads will need to be fastened on with pipe cleaner as well.

Finally add on some black/purple/yellow/etc. spider rings to the mesh.

Ta dah! Sweet and adorable on the door for Halloween!
