Step 1: Painting the Hoop
Let’s kick things off with a splash of black paint on that wooden hoop. Trust me; this hoop is going from “meh” to “spooktacular” in no time. One coat will do, but I went all out with two!
Step 2: Adding Ribbon and/or Deco Mesh and picking the Perfect Petals
Now, for the fun part – choosing your Dollar Tree Halloween flowers! Think black roses, orange dahlias, and deep purple lilies. Grab some faux leaves to keep things fresh and creepy.
Step 3: Stick ‘Em Up
With your hoop all dry and looking fabulously dark, it’s time to get sticky. Fire up that trusty hot glue gun and start attaching those blooms. Start at the bottom, and let the creativity flow!
Step 4: Spiders – Because It’s Halloween!
Let’s not forget our eight-legged friends. Secure some Halloween plastic spiders here and there. They’ll add a wickedly fun touch. Hot glue ’em down, and watch your wreath come alive! You could add spider webs on this step too if you want to up the spookiness.
Step 5: Adding the WOW Factor to this Halloween wreath DIY
Take a step back and admire your handiwork. If you’re feeling fancy, add a bow or ribbon. This wreath is your canvas, so go ahead and make it your own spooky masterpiece.
