It’s time for some spooky decor! I created this easy Haunted Mansion inspired wreath a few years ago. It was so easy I made 2!! Yes, one for each pillar outside my home. I love crafting! Especially on a budget I picked up supplies for this for under $10!!
Here is what you’ll need:
- Bare wreath ($5 at Micheals crafts)
- Yellow foam sheet $1
- White foam sheet $1
- Red Christmas bow $1
- Glue gun & glue sticks
- Black Sharpie marker
And don’t forget to use coupons if you’re shopping for your supplies at Micheals, Joann’s, or Hobby Lobby!
1. First turn on your glue gun. I like it ready to go once everything is cut. Place a paper plate or cardboard under to avoid any glue mess!
2. Using the yellow foam paper cut out 2 oval eyes. Luckily there’s plenty of room for any mistakes. Use a pencil to trace out your eyes before cutting. With your black sharpie draw in the beady eye on each oval.
3. Grab your white to cut out the teeth and skull for the bow. Sharp and pointy teeth for the full effect. The top teeth and bottom don’t need to be identical just sharp and scary. Next, cut a small skull shape for the center of your bow. Draw two eyes, nostril dots and lines for the teeth on your skull.
4. Assembly time! Glue your two yellow eyes and a angle for a mad effect!! Give it a minute to dry so it stays in place.
5. Flip it over so the back of the wreath is now facing you. Put a line of the hot glue on the teeth. Place the glue against the wreath. Make sure the teeth are showing good once it’s flipped back over. Repeat for the bottom teeth. Allow it to dry and set for a minute or two.
6. Turn it back over to twist on the red bow. Add audit of glue to secure it. And last glue the skull to the center of the bow. For extra fun use a garland for arms when putting up.
