halloween wreath {diy}

September 28, 2013

This is the first wreath I have put on my front door since we moved in.  I know, it’s crazy.  But I sometimes have a hard time finding exactly what I want, so it stays naked.  Finally though…something that speaks to me.

I used my 40% off coupon at JoAnn to get my wreath.

Sprayed it black.

Then dug through my stash of felt.  I cut 5 circles, roughly the same size, plus another slightly bigger for each flower.  I made the felt flowers pretty similar to this tutorial because I like the big, bold, ruffled look of them.

Finally, I hot-glued them on.

I think it is a pretty, bold wreath for Halloween!  My front porch almost feels complete for the season…more on that to come!

    This is adorabel! I am so over the traditional fall wreaths. Yours is very trendy. I wonder if I could find a similar twig wreath from somewhere other than JoAnns.

    This is so pretty. I love the organic feel. It is cool how you could change out the color of the felt flowers for different seasons.
