DIY Halloween "Wreath" & Decor (No Sew, No Glue) [Inspiration Workshop]

Pin It
I really love Halloween... growing up in Sleepy Hollow, NY, with legends and stories, it's almost impossible not to get excited about this time of year...

So, yesterday, my little chick and I went out to get some supplies to make a Halloween & Fall wreath.

I bought a wreath for Fall and was going to use it for Halloween as well... but, I found this broom at the Dollar store... how perfect, right?!

{Supplies Needed}
Halloween Spray Decor {$2.50}
Straw Broom {$1}
Foam "Haunting Season" Sign {$1}
Black Puff Paint {Already had}
Ribbon {Splurge $8}...
 (I'll have plenty of ribbon left over for other projects)
Total {$12.50}

First, let's decorate the foam sign with puff paint... 

Remember to protect your table! 

I simply dotted paint around the letters... 

Filled in the bat...

And the Spider...
The best part of Puff Paint is that it adds that 3D effect to your project!
Set your foam aside to dry.

Now, we'll cut the ribbon for some bows...
my ribbon is pretty wide so I folded it down some:

Then, I tied the pieces, alternately, on my broom handle...
trimming to size: 

Next, I bent the stem of my Halloween spray 
and stuck it into the base of the broom 'handle': 

Fluff and arrange the spray: 

Finish off with a small cut of ribbon, folded...

And pinned (see, no glue here),
to the center of the spray's 'bow'...

Which I think looks like spider legs, 
just not as creepy.

I also added a final tie of ribbon for the streamers at the base of the broom! 

Once the Puff Paint had dried to the 'Haunting Season' foam
I took a Kabob skewer and stuck it up the middle of 
my sign to make a 'stake':

Which I then used to Stake 'Haunting Season' 
into my new mums: 

Here's my finished DIY Halloween 'Wreath' and porch display!
