Halloween Rose Wreath
With Halloween this week, I wanted to craft something decorative that wouldn't take very long to make. I've adapted this wreath from Martha Stewart's Craft Encyclopedia Book. Who says wreaths are only for Christmas?
FYI, apologies for the poor photos. With my travel and working later with the sun setting so early, I couldn't get great light for the shots.
10-12 fake roses (black and purple)
Additional Halloween-themed leaves
16-inch wreath frame (MDF)
Grey or black paint, paintbrush
Hot glue gun and sticks
Wide black ribbon
Paint the wooden wreath with a dark colour, this will help to blend with the roses.
Remove stems from roses, then attach the blooms to the wreath form with a hot-glue gun. The frame I bought had holes in it so I placed the larger roses there. Fill in the gaps with the remaining roses, leaves or any other decor you'd like.
Cut a long loop of ribbon to allow your wreath to hang. Hot glue the ends of the ribbon together, as well as the ribbon to the wreath to ensure it won't move around.
Hang it for all to enjoy!
