Spider Halloween wreath

This Halloween wreath idea is a great choice if you have lots of odds and ends of leftover yarn or even stranded cotton that you want to use up in a DIY Halloween wreath. The spider is made using syrophome balls and pipe cleaners, but you could get the same effect using paper-mache-covered scrunched-up balls of newspaper – see our how to make a paper mache pumpkin for the technique.

Lace DIY Halloween wreath

Halloween wreath idea lace

Sometimes the simple ideas are the best, and there is something very Nightmare before Christmas about this brilliant DIY Halloween wreath idea from The honeycomb home. All you need is a wire coat hanger and a long length of 6-inch-wide black lace. The wreath is decorated simply with a long hanging length of ribbon, but we think our free crochet bat pattern hanging in the centre would be a nice addition, too.

Black Halloween wreath

DIY Halloween wreath idea

Here's an understated DIY Halloween wreath idea from Better Homes and Gardens. They are spray painting a pre-made wreath, then decorating with fairy lights and craft embellishments made with craft write and beads. We think Gathered's bat plush pattern are a more helpful option to augment your wreath, as the spider featured on Better Homes and Gardens' DIY Halloween wreath is not really explained how to make it.

Felt flower Halloween wreath

Ahoy there felt craft! We love this simple idea for a DIY Halloween wreath from Living Locurto. Rolled felt strips make perfect little roses, and, combined with a black bow and boo sentiment, this is one sweet DIY Halloween wreath. Why not add the central sentiment using Gathered's free Halloween printables?
