I wanted something fun for Halloween for my front door and I’m going to show you how to make a Halloween Wreath DIY out of tulle and a straw wreath for yourself.
This is my current Fall Door arrangement. Red is my favorite color so I pulled apart some older arrangements I was tired of and put it all together here. I am not a flower arranger, my mom can make wonderful arrangements and wreaths but she did not pass that gene to me! This was mostly put together by her and re-transplanted.
Since Halloween is coming soon I decided to make a new wreath for the door since my old one was looking really sad. I already had a straw wreath form so I took my coupon to Hobby Lobby and bought 4 rolls of tulle, 2 orange and 2 black, and some wood letters. I started by cutting the tool into squares.
Than I pinched them together from the middle of the square like this
And poked it down into the straw wreath with a pair of scissors. I left the plastic on the wreath since it is going outdoors we will see if that is a good idea or not.
I did 2 rows of 4 across in each color alternating around the entire wreath.
Once that was finished I painted my letters black and put cute little orange polka dots on them. I used outdoor craft paint so they will withstand the elements. Then I got out my wreath pins and a Sharpie Paint Pen.
I pinned the letters on and painted the top of the pen black so it would not show as much.
Then I went outside and hung it up to see how it looked, Pretty cute I think!
Update, go HERE to see how I made it even better!
