Dead Flower Halloween Wreath
I love all things spooky and haunting for Halloween. Decorations (Even though ragged looking for Halloween) can be expensive. So I used some goodwill and dollar tree materials to make my own hauntingly beautiful wreath for my front door.
I got a bundle of artificial flowers at goodwill for $5. But as you can see these bright flowers aren’t gonna fly for my haunted Halloween vibe.
I just laid out plastic in my lawn to guard the grass from the next step.
This cheap spray paint was 97 cents at Menards. All I needed was black didn’t really matter what finish.
Spray in various directions and flip frequently then give whatever the can says for dry time.
I wrapped the green form in black crepe paper to avoid the green showing through my flowers.
The form is from dollar tree as well as the crepe paper.
The rag is from, you guessed it, dollar tree. I added a ratty bow for affect.
Now that I have dead looking flowers, I am ready to make them into a wreath.
I also sprayed them with “frosted glass” to make them look dusty.
Scissors are pictured here but I actually used wire snips.
cut the flowers leaving about an inch of wire stem to stick in to the wreath form.
Stick the flowers in as you please! I started out very random and moved things around to adjust the way I liked it.
you can also interchange flowers and stems and leaves. So don’t be discouraged if things start falling apart! Just stick it on a new stem (you’ll have lots of leftover stems.
I love it! I think after Halloween I’ll just remove the bow and keep it up! We’ll see!
