Decorating the wreath was fun and I was able to get some help from my neighbors children. When it comes to kids I tend to let them be creative. I tell them how to balance the wreath with color and decor items and then I step back to oversee and help when needed. I think the best wreaths are decorated by children because they are so cute.
Here is a orange themed Halloween wreath that would be fun to create.
Set the wreath in the middle of the tarp. Spray the paint evenly on the wreath. Wait 20 minutes and then repeat. When the wreath is fully dry in about an hour you would then flip it over and paint the other side.
Before you decorate the wreath make sure that the paint is completely dry.
Heat your hot glue gun so that you can attach the decorations to the wreath. Before you glue the decorations to the wreath set them on the wreath so that they are balanced. Then glue them onto the wreath.
Next add the feathers by gluing the end of the stem between the wreaths branches. You can also add interest with black pipe cleaners. Bent the pipe cleaners and add a little pop to the Halloween wreath. Gather the stems or sticks from the candy corn and wrap them together in a bunch. Attach the bunch to the wreath.
- Wear a mask when using the spray paint
- Hang wreath behind storm door or under an awning to protect from the weather
- Balance wreath decorations so that they are eye appealing
- Make several wreaths and sell them at a church bizarre, flea market or at a yard sale.
