Hey hey hey! We’re adding to our ever growing Halloween decor with a skeleton wreath and there’s no bones about it that today’s tutorial is super cute… get it? Bones? Skeleton? Hahaha… (;

Cute and easy Halloween skeleton wreath tutorial

This project was inspired by BHG’s skeleton wreath– seriously adorable!

We wanted to incorporate some orange into ours but still loved the black and whites so that concept was a keeper! We snagged some gorgeous FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® decorative 12″ mesh in yummy Halloween colors: orange, purple, white and green. Because we were creating our skeleton wreath opposite of BHG’s, we used the orange deco mesh to wrap our straw wreath paired with some black&white striped ribbon for the bow.

Supplies to make a super easy Halloween skeleton wreath

Besides the deco mesh and ribbon, we also used glitter + mod podge to cover a dollar store plastic skull. Be sure to have a foam brush and glue gun ready, too! We promise this was a snap to put together and within an hour (or less) from start to finish it was hanging on the front door ready to welcome spooky Halloween guests!

  1. Using your foam brush, apply a thin coat of mod podge onto the plastic skull.
  2. Working in sections, immediately shake (or pour) glitter over the mod podge.
  3. To avoid glitter all.over.the.house, cover skull with a light spray varnish, (sold in any craft/hobby store.)
  4. Wrap your decorative mesh around the straw wreath form.
  5. To secure the end of the deco mesh to the wreath form, simply add a dab of hot glue.
  6. Tie a pretty double bow (we found our chunky striped ribbon from Michael’s) and knot it.
  7. Hot glue the skull to the wreath form, then the bow under the skull directly to the wreath form.
  8. Viola! Enjoy! (:

This wreath is such a fun addition to our recent Halloween decor like our stenciled buntingpainted pumpkins and Halloween marquee letters and fun Halloween font roundup. Holy moly it’s only mid-September and we’re almost decked to the max with October’s cute holiday… almost! (;
