Halloween Wreath

I fell in love with a mummy looking Halloween wreath from thechicadeeshop on Etsy and have been dieing to create my own mummy wreath inspired by this beautiful wreath.

I recently picked up the supplies and put it together.  The best news?  It was much easier than I thought it would be and only took me about 10-15 minutes to put together.

P.S. – Make sure you visit the thechicadeeshop shop on Etsy.  There are many more amazing wreaths and decor items that will surely make you happy.

DIY Halloween Wreath Tutorial

Halloween Wreath Supplies

  • 1 1/2 yards crushed tulle fabric (Gauze or cheese cloth would work great – probably better)
  • Styrofoam wreath form
  • Pins
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Skeleton hands party favor (optional)

Mummy Halloween Wreath Instructions

If necessary, cut the edge of your fabric.  This is a scary mummy wreath so it is OK (and best) to have jagged edges.  Don’t try to be perfect.

Gather an edge of the fabric and pin into the Styrofoam wreath form.  Wrap the remaining fabric around the wreath and pin periodically on the back side of the wreath so the pins stay hidden.

Once the fabric is wrapped around the wreath, pull sections of the fabric from the wreath and cut the fabric so there are jagged pieces hanging from the wreath.

Tie a bow with some ribbon and pin to the top of the wreath.

I found the skeleton hand party favors at a local craft store.  To add them to the wreath, I hot glued some ribbon to the hands and pinned them at varying lengths to the wreath.

I used a Scotch wreath hanger to hang the wreath on the mirror.

I love how my Halloween wreath turned out!  It was a quick craft and I think it adds some spooky elegance to my Halloween decor.

    Thanks for this tutorial! I made this as well but could not figure out how to get the skeleton hands right! I will try again now!
