DIY Halloween Wreath for Under $8.00 @DollarTree #Halloween #DIY


Halloween is one of my favorite things about LIFE.  Next to saving money, and Creating things, of course.  I was going to my local Dollar Tree for a few things I needed, and I am always side tracked by the Seasonal items in the Front.  Like my List of Needs, becomes, oh, Mini Zombies, and Gargoyle for my Halloween Village?? Don't mind if I do.   I saw the prettiest Black, and Purple Roses in the Halloween Section on an End Cap.  I knew I wanted them, but I didn't just want them to be in a Vase.  I decided, I was going to make my own Wreath, using nothing but Dollar Tree Items.  



Black Rose Bouquet w/Bats
Purple Rose Bouquet w/Spiders
Spider Web Wall Hanging Decoration
Wooden Wreath
Black/White Wire Ribbon
Purple Mesh Ribbon
Ceramic Skull


First Step, that made this Easy, was I cut a long enough piece of the two tone Black/White See Through Wire Ribbon and Wrapped it in, and out the Wreath before Attaching the Back of the Spider Web.  Since the Ribbon is Mesh, it's better to make sure to do all the Glue on the back of the Wreath itself.

After that was Done, I then attached the Spider Web Wall Decoration to the Back of the Wreath too, it was fairly flat, and easy to attach to each other with the Hot Glue.

While waiting for that to dry enough to pick up again, I took apart the Roses. First by taking the Roses off the Stems (They Pull off easily.) Also I saved the Bats, and Spiders that came with the Fake flowers in the Bouquets.  



I made my bows before I lined up, and attached my Roses to the Wreath.  I made a big Purple Mesh Bow, and Hot glued one of the Bats I got from the Roses on it. 

Arranging the Flowers was fun,  I just hot Glued the plastic Flower/leaf part itself, and attached to the Wreath.



There is no wrong way to make a craft project like this.  Just do what you want with it, arrange your flowers, or bats, or spiders, or pumpkins, or whatever YOU want, the way YOU want it.  I had a lot of fun doing this DIY, and with the Left overs, I made a little Rose flower hat for the Ceramic Skull.
