Create a Halloween Wreath for your Front Door or Entry with this easy to follow tutorial. An easy DIY craft tutorial idea for fun Halloween Decor.
Halloween is on of my favorite holidays to decorate for. There are so many possibilities between creepy, scary, vintage, and fun and cutesy. I am not exactly sure what category this Striped Halloween Wreath would fall under. The skull makes it creepy while the stripes and big yellow bow make it fun.
This wreath was pretty simple to put to together and I love how it turned out. I started with a pool noodle that we had hiding in our closet. The hot summer pool days are over so I don’t think it will be missed. Using Gorilla Tape I taped the ends together to form the wreath shape.

I picked up the plastic skull and the black and white felt sheets at Walmart. I love the skull!
The sheets of black white felt I cut into 2-inch strips. So each strip was 8 1/2 x 2 inches. It turned out to be the perfect size to wrap around the pool noodle.
Got out my trusty glue gun and started gluing the strips onto the wreath in a striped pattern.
When all of the stripes were added this is how my wreath is starting to look. It’s already looking fun!
My skull needed a way to hang inside of the wreath. I used a nail to hammer a small hole into the skull (not a sentence I ever thought I would say), and then twisted in the small screw. I have no clue what this screw is called, but it is the kind that has the loop it the end. I found it in the garage and said to myself, that will work, and it did. Perfect!
I then took a long piece of fishing line and tied it to the screw…
and the other end around the top of the wreath. Fishing line works great because it is clear and make the skull look as if it is floating inside the wreath.
I liked my wreath, but it was missing something. I went digging through my fabric stash and found some yellow flannel fabric. I frayed the edges of the fabric and made this fun bow.
Hot glued the bow onto the bottom of the wreath, and I was all done. The best part is as the door opens and closes his head shakes back forth. I think he is cute and creepy.
