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.
