Here is a quick and fun Halloween Wreath that can be made in a couple of hours while you watch a movie. I made a large wreath but if you have little girls and need a fun fall craft this is an easy one for all ages if you do small wreaths.

Halloween Wreath

October 2013 039

Supplies Needed:

  • Wire wreath – I got mine from Michael’s and it cost under $2.
  • 2-3 colors of tulle. I used black and white. I was going to add gray but I felt that the wreath was full enough without adding another layer. I bought it in 3 inch wide spools. I needed 2 spools per color.
  • Ribbon. I used some ribbon that I already had left over from another project.
  • An ornamental piece. I chose a spider from the dollar store. You could use anything that matches your decor.
  • Time.


  • I cut my tulle into 6 inch strips. I did this while I was watching a movie one night. It took about an hour.
  • Pick your first color, I chose black first. Take one strip and knot it around the most outside ring of the wire frame. Repeat all the way around.
  • Choose your second color and knot the strips all the way around the second circle of the wire.
  • I chose to skip my third color because the wreath was very full already. I switched back to the black tulle and knotted the last layer around the bottom circle of the frame.
  • Choose an ornamental piece. I choose a spider that I got for $1 and I hot glued it to the wreath. I love that it gives it a pop of color.
  • Last take your coordinating ribbon and tie it through the biggest ring on the wreath. I choose to do a knot but a bow would look great too!

This is  very simple project that my 9 and 11 year old girls could do alone. My only tip: DO NOT use glitter tulle. You will find glitter all over the house forever. I made the mistake of buying black glitter tulle because I thought it would be fun. It is really fun, and messy!
