Jeanette from Craft in Crosby loves Grandin Road’s Halloween décor, especially the wreaths, so it’s no surprise that a spooky “Happy Hauntings” wreath immediately caught her eye while perusing the catalog.
Jeannette knew she could make one for less than the $259 price tag – way less!
She gathered supplies from the dollar store and got to work, making her feathery skeleton wreath for only $12. What a fun combination of creepy and classy!
What You Need
You’ll probably need to hit up a couple stores to get all the materials, but “dollar” stores and Hobby Lobby will have everything!
- Skeleton (skull and torso)
- Feather boas
- Halloween ribbon rolls
- Halloween glitter stems
- Willow wreaths
- Coat hanger
- Thin foam board
- Purple paint
- Make the “bones” for the actual wreath using the coat hanger and willow wreaths
- Glue on the boa feathers
- Position and wire in your skeleton (skull and torso)
- Cut out your foam board, paint purple and write your “Happy Haunting” sign
- Add the skeleton hat and loops of ribbon, glitter stems around the skeleton
Jeanette was inspired by the “Happy Hauntings” Wreath from Grandin Road.
The original looks a little bit more faded or washed out than Jeanette’s. Perhaps this gives it a spookier feel, but… I like that Jeanette’s more “vibrant” appearance makes it stand out a bit and creates more fun.
See how you can make your own Halloween wreath for only $12 at Craft in Crosby.
