How do you make easy Halloween wreaths?

It is very easy to create your own personal Halloween wreath. All you have to do is use your imagination, get creative and have fun. You can implement some DIY autumn decorations into your wreath for a more classic vibe. If you want to make it more spooky, just add a witch hat, a broom that you can make out of dry twigs, and a bunch of colorful pumpkins. You can also add cotton ghosts or black cardboard cats, put some glitter on them or glue funny eyes.

You want to create funny legs for your witch as shown on the picture ? Grab your old socks, some cotton to fill them in and paperclips to attach them to your wreath. Fall is also the season of chestnuts. You can paint them in orange, glue them to the wreath, and they will play the role of tiny little pumpkins. You can even use old Christmas ornaments and paint them different Halloween colors or make them look like monsters.

We all love our Disney movies, but during Halloween it is time for the villains to shine. How to make this beautiful Maleficent wreath? It is easier than you think. You are going to need a plastic Maleficent mask. If you are not able to find one, you can cut it from a paper and color it yourself. You are also going to need some glamorous, dark, black feathers and a glue.

Monsters INC is one of my childhood favorite movies. If I can implement this on my Halloween decoration, I am here for it. Grab your purple and blue tulle, fake eyes and cardboard teeth, and you have your self a Sully. It is very easy to make, it will not be as scary, however who does not love Sully ? If you have some tulle leftovers, you can get creative and make your own monsters in different colors.

How do we make Halloween wreath with lights?

It is very simply to create your wreath with lights in it. The best part is you can make it creepy, spooky or chic if you want to. You can choose any type of lights you would like. All you have to do is wrap them up on your wreath and finish the decoration. I would pick red lights, because it is extra spooky. You can turn them into a web or if you are more creative you can make figures with them. It depends on the lights you have. If you are able to find lights with a thinner cord, making figures will be super easy and fun. I personally love pumpkin lanterns during Halloween and what I like to do is find the smallest pumpkin, carve it and put lights inside. It is a perfect ornament for a Halloween wreath.

This is a great idea on how you can turn your simple lights into this garland of crows. You just need to cut them out of cardboard, felt or even paper. Make a hole for the eye of the crow and this is where your lights will go. You can make them smaller and wrap them on your wreath.
