Haunting Halloween Wreath

Welcome to a Haunting Halloween Wreath making sort of day.
I am sharing a few easy steps with you on how to make your own purple and black Halloween wreath.  
It is part whimsy and part haunting, a happy mix of Halloween fun.
Spooky enough to frighten and yet silly enough to spread Halloween cheer.

It's a perfect time of the year to perfect your wreath making skills.

I made this wreath on our back patio in less than two hours.
It is a combination of leftovers from a previous Halloween wreath and some discounted Halloween item from Michaels.

Perfect time to stock up on those seasonal items, as all of the craft stores are moving out their Fall inventory for Christmas.


These are the items you will need for your Haunting Halloween Wreath:

1. 18 inch grapevine wreath. (I spray painted mine gray-optional)
2. 3 Black roses
3. 10 Purples mums
4. 3 Black pumpkins
5. 5 Black skulls
6. 3 Purple pumpkins
7. 1 sequin mask
8. 1 BOO
9. 1 Witches shoe
10. Deco Mesh Ribbon
11. Grosgrain Ribbon
12. Scissors
13. Glue gun and glue sticks
14. Florist wire
15. Florist cutters


Just follow these easy steps using the supplies listed above to make your own
Haunting Halloween Wreath.

These is your DIY wreath, so customized it to your preference with colors and styles you like.
Just be very careful with the hot glue gun-I seem to always get a small burn or two.

Assemble your supplies together in a well lit work area and cover your work space.

Step 3:
Add roses, pumpkins, skulls and mask securing with hot glue.


Step 4:
Add witches shoe and wrap grosgrain ribbon around the wreath, securing the beginning and end of ribbon with hot glue.


Step 5:

Add deco-mesh bow and presto you have a Haunting Halloween Wreath!

Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.


  1. This is great it's so festive and those shades of purple with the black is the best. I stopped decorating for Halloween after we moved on the farm because we don't get trick or treaters anymore. Which is probably good keeps me from eating candy, this was always a fun time of year when the kids were home.
