Trick or Treat! Make a Wreath!


Fall is here, and this is the time of year when we start thinking about spooky decorations, tricks, and treats! Our project today is a combination of all of these: a spooky, sparkly Halloween Wreath! And teh best part is that all the items used to make this great wreath can be found at the dollar store!

What You Need:
  • 5 nine foot Halloween tinsel garlands
  • 1 Trick or Treat foam sign
In one easy step, alternate wrapping the tinsel garland around
the wreath until fully covered. Then stick a small nail in the top center of the wreath and loop the trick or treat sign around the nail. Voila! You have a spooky wreath for under $10!
Pin It!

  1. I love this!!! I was just at the dollar store looking at all of these things debating on if I wanted to make a wreath or not...
    After seeing this I may just have to come up with something! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Very cute, I was thinking about wrapping a black feather boa around a wreath shape and this sounds like a even more frugal way to get a similar look. The glittery sign looks great with it too. Thank you for joining us at A Crafty Soiree! Not sure if you linked up at my blog or Malia's but in case you didn't see it. I featured your magazine wreath this week☺

  9. I was just at the Dollar Store the other day and loved the cute little glitter signs, but wasn't sure what to do with them. I may have just found the idea I was looking for. Thanks! Hopping over from Finding Fabulous.

  11. How sparkly and spooky! I had a similar idea to make a wreath wrapped in garlands but had no clue it would require five of them! Looks like I'd better head back to the Dollar Store soon. Spotted your link at We Did It Wednesday.
