I recently relocated back to Canada after spending over 20 years living and working throughout Asia and Europe and am ridiculously excited to celebrate my first “real” Halloween in over 2 decades! Even more exciting is introducing my kiddo to my absolute favourite childhood holiday and watching her delight as each of our eerie DIYs come to life. (My lovely little lassie has definitely inherited my love for all things creepy, yay!)
Sift through your stash, check out your junk drawer, hunt in your closet and raid your kiddo’s ever-growing plastic toy collection to create The Upcycled DIY Halloween Wreath!
Grab a wire coat hanger, newspapers or flyers and some of that brown packing paper you’ve been hoarding (brown paper bags will work too!).
Bend the wire hanger into a circular wreath shape. (on a side note: I am thrilled to be back in the land of wire coat hangers! These beauties are fabulous for so many DIYs but are a rarity outside of North America.)
Twist, wrap and secure the newspaper and flyers around the coat hanger frame to create a lovely puffy shaped form for your wreath.
A groovy use for all of those papers in the recycling bin!
Cut the brown paper into wide strips and squish it up to make it nice and wrinkled.
Wrap and secure the paper around the puffy wreath.
Lookin’ great! Now comes the actual fun part:
Snag a bunch of bits n’ bobs to decorate the wreath (+ your trusty glue gun) and stick it all together!
Whip up some eerily adorable Halloween creepy dolls with my simple tute to create a truly unique wreath!
Hang it up and have a spooktacular Halloween!
