Today I'm sharing this super easy DIY Halloween Wreath tutorial. I love how classy it turned out. :)
This wreath is super easy and affordable...and I'm here to share a step by step tutorial for you to make your own!
- Black Cardstock (I used 12x12)- cut into 4" by 4" squares, I also cut a few 3" by 3" squares to use in the center.
- Glue gun & glue sticks
- Cardboard for backing
- Ribbon (to hang finished wreath)
- Pattern scrapbook paper
- Spider or item for center
- paper tube (paper towel or toilet paper tube)
First off, cut your cardstock. As mentioned above, for the majority of my wreath my 12x12 cardstock pages were cut into 9 equal squares of 4" by 4".
After you have your paper cut its time to make a bunch of paper cone funnels to use as 'petals' for your wreath. You will fold these and attach them together with glue to hold the shape. Below is a photo showing how to fold the paper squares into cone petals. I also taped a video that makes it a little more clear. :)
Here is the video to show how I made them. My first video vlog ever!
After you have your cone petals made, cut a circular piece of cardboard to use as your wreath base. This is where you will glue your petals. You'll start hot glueing your petals to the cardstock, I press the center cone bottom peak a little flat where I glue it...seems to add some good dimension to the wreath. You'll go around and around until you have your wreath at its desired fullness. As you go, you can either turn this into an entire petal dahlia wreath, or change it up as I did. I decided to add a center piece to the wreath for Halloween. After I had the desired number of petals attached, I used a cut paper tube to the center and attached a folded pinwheel of scrapbook paper. Then I attached the spider and there you have it, a super easy and affordable Halloween Wreath!
