DIY Halloween Ornament Wreath for a BOOtiful Front Door!

Supplies:

  • Styrofoam wreath form (cut in half)
  • LOTS of plastic ornaments in various sizes, colors (orange and black), & textures (gloss, matte, & glitter)
  • Decorative vase filler (purple and green)
  • Black floral leaves with purple glitter
  • Purple and black spider web hanging decoration
  • Floral wire
  • Hot glue gun & glue sticks

I made this wreath years ago after buying all the supplies at Michaels, and sadly I don’t have a step-by-step tutorial for you. So sorry! It was long before this blog was even a thought of mine.

For the most part though, it was made the same way I describe in my tutorial for making an ornament wreath. So if you want to know all the details from start to finish, check that out!

How To Make An Ornament Wreath

 

I’ve also made several other ornament wreaths including my:

 

For this wreath, however, instead of using a grapevine wreath form, I used a styrofoam one…and it reaffirmed my love for grapevine! Never again will I use anything other than grapevine….never again.

I actually cut the styrofoam in half (after seeing a Pinterest idea, of course) to try and get two wreaths out of it. It worked but it was a PAIN….it took forever to slice in half and I got styrofoam all over me.

If The Hubs had been home, he would have been performing this manual labor task for me, but I grabbed a knife and gave it a go on my own…..ugh, big mistake.

Moving on….

I first removed the ornament tops and then glued on the orange and black ornaments to the wreath form.

Next, I went back and filled in some of the larger gaps with the purple and green balls (these actually aren’t ornaments….they’re vase filler, but they still worked perfectly for this project).

I then added some black floral leaves to fill the rest of the gaps and, lastly, glued the spider decoration to the back.

The final step was adding a loop made out of floral wire and attaching it to the back for hanging.

I just love how it turned out! It’s super Halloweeny without being too scary or cheeky. It looks so great hanging on our front door every October!

I'm obsessed with this wreath!! I have to know... where did you find that spider web hanging decoration? The ones I'm seeing online (albeit February) aren't nearly as vibrant! And I think the spider in the center really makes this wreath what it is! Would love to know more about where to find one.
