DIY: Halloween Wreath

Delia Creates' blog has a great Halloween tutorial and we want to showcase it now so you'll have plenty of time to get on it for the upcoming holiday!  We love Halloween and all the fun things you can do, so we'll be showcasing more DIY that has Halloween themes - so get those party themes ready to roll.

Check out their blog for more DIY!


Well today I have two more.

1. First...pack up the kids and go stick hunting. Get A LOT of sticks.

2. Then cut or break {which is what I did} all your sticks into similar lengths. It doesn't have to be least not with this Halloween craft. The more imperfect the spookier it looks.

3. Cut a cardboard circle out of an old diaper box or cereal box. I used a medium sized mixing bowl and a cereal bowl for tracing. Cover in burlap or twine if you want. I don't think it is necessary. I added the burlap and it made gluing things more complicated. Plus you are going to paint over it so...

4. Hot glue the sticks around the cardboard circle.

5. Then spray paint it black. I had to touch it up with acrylic paint as well. You can paint the sticks before gluing. It's up to you.

6. Hang with a black ribbon and add an orange plastic spider if you have one in your Halloween stash.
