Harvest Halloween Wreath DIY

Today I am excited to share a guest post from Messy over at 2MESSY--and it's a fun one! Enjoy!
Hi Everyone!!! I am uber excited to be here at Little Luck Tree with my Harvest Halloween Wreath DIY for you all!!!
 
I adore having a wreath on my door...I just think it makes a home look so put together...even if it isn't. LOL

What You'll Need:
 
~ raffia wreath or foam wreath of any size
~ sewing pins
~ faux or silk autumn leaf garland
~ bunches of fake gourds, berries or pumpkins
~ Halloween ribbon with wire edging
~ Halloween garland, mini skeletons (optional)
~ fun Halloween sign or saying

STEP 1: Start with your wreath and wrap your leaves and berries (or whatever you have) that is in garland form around your wreath base. Tuck the ends in the back where the with pins or tucking like I did. {HINT: If you have an area where there is a open spot use a pin to force a leave to cover it!}

STEP 2: Stick your clusters of faux gourds and pumpkins through the base and bend the ends in back if too long. 
STEP 3: Tie a bow out of your Halloween ribbon around the bottom of your wreath. I left longer ends, cut them in peaks and used the wire to make a wave effect.

STEP 4: Add your Halloween sign and skeletons or whatever you have to make it spooky!!! :) {Last year I added a little spider webs to be different}
 
STEP 5: Add a hanging ribbon and hang on your front door.
 
Hope you enjoy! I often redo my wreath from year to year to change it up a bit. 
 
Thank you to Shannon for letting me Guest Post!
 
Cheers,
Messy

  1. I love creating wreaths.
    I have a fall wreath on my door right now, I have a winter one..but I haven't been able to make a spring one or a summer one yet. I have all these ideas, but I just gotta do it.

  2. Oh, I love it! It turned out so great. For some reason, wreaths are my favorite type of decoration!

  3. Pretty cool wreath! I am in awe of people who have imaginations to see things and know how to make them. I have no such talent. I just support the talent! Stopping by from the blog hop (although late) and following you thru GFC and RSS Reader. I would love a follow back when you get the chance. Thanks so much for your help and have a great week!
