{Spooky} Yarn Wreath

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}

Supplies:

  • 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

Directions:

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! ;)

Optional: Glue spooky sign to the top of the wreath.

    I love this bit of lace at the bottom and that black bird looks great.

    I think this is one of my FAVORITE Halloween wreaths that I have come across! I just love all of the details! How exciting that you were on TV – you looked great and so natural. I think I would be a mess! Have a great week.

    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!

    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!
