DIY Fall and Halloween Wreaths

Photo by Ben+Sam
Home decor really plays a part in making your house feel like home. You can welcome guests to your home with a festive fall or Halloween wreath. With these ideas and tips you can make your own with minimal supplies and time.

Traditional Leaf Wreath 


  • Fake leaf garland (red, orange, yellow)
  • Hot glue 
  • Wreath twigs (found in craft store)


  1. Lay out your twig wreath. You can usually find this already in the shape of a wreath at a local craft store, otherwise you have to shape the twigs into a circle. Once you have that, work in your leaf garland, placing it in the inner part of the wreath. 
  2. Use varying shades of red, orange and yellow to blend the leaf colors. Cover the inner part of the wreath with leaves with some twigs exposed around the outer part. 
  3. Glue loose pieces of garland onto the twig wreath and hang.

Halloween Ghosts and Ghouls Wreath


  • Plain wreath (craft store)
  • Purple or black yarn
  • Fake cobwebs
  • Skull props 
  • Glue
  • Black ribbon
  • Foam letters


  1. Wrap either purple or black yarn around your wreath until covered. 
  2. Cover wreath in black ribbon and garnish it with a few cobwebs.
  3. Glue on some skull props to one part. 
  4. On the top or bottom, glue on the word "Boo" in some white foam letters and hang. 
Now, your home is ready to welcome trick-or-treaters and Halloween guests. Plus, if you are making the traditional leaf wreath, you can keep it up all the way until Thanksgiving!
