Hey friends! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Today I’m going to show you how to make this spooky Halloween yarn wreath I made on Arizona Midday.  I’ll post the Skeleton Frame and Wreath hanger that were in the video tomorrow. :)

{Yarn Wreath}


  • Foam Wreath (Hobby Lobby)
  • Yarn (Jo-Ann’s)
  • Lace (Jo-Ann’s)
  • Flowers (Handmade)
  • Spanish Moss (from Dolllar Tree)
  • Black Bird (from Dollar Tree)
  • Spooky Sign (from Hobby Lobby)
  • tacky glue

1. Glue one end of yarn to the wreath and wrap the yarn ALL the way around the foam wreath…yup keep going!! Once you reach the end tack it down with a little glue.

2. Wrap lace around back of the wreath and tack it down with tacky glue.

3. Add some hand made flowers (look here for tutorials) for a fun little touch.

4. Glue Spanish Moss on top of the lace seam. Just a warning…this stuff gets pretty messy! ;)

    Thanks for putting that Arizona Midday segment up. I was googling it online and couldn’t find it. You did a GREAT JOB on there! :)

    Sometime Halloween decorations can look tacky, but you make them look so awesome! I’ll definitely bee trying both the wreath and the spooky picture frame!

    Usually I’m not just a fan from the yarn wreaths but that one is amazing. It’s really stunning.I think the best thing about this wreath may be the black lace! This type of great addition to the yarn wreath! I love this look.

    I saw your absolutely DARLING wreath on Craft Gossip this morning. I am not really a Halloween person, but I love to decorate my house for the holidays and this wreath is just the thing for me. Luckily, I live in UT so I can get my supplies from Hobby Lobby & JoAnn’s and Dollar Tree!
    Thanks so much for your tips and great VIDEO. I am printing it out as we speak.
    Have a happy holiday too.

    I love this! The spanish moss, the crow, the sparkly spooky…all of it! It’s especially nice to see it sitting in your vignette and not just hanging on a door as usual. Kudos!
