DIY Halloween Witch Wreath

Hello my pretties! (See what I did there?)
We have been busy creating some ‘wicked’ Halloween Crafts With Hobbycraft! Ok so enough of the puns and on with this post. My Son and I got out our craft box, full of make and do goodies and decided to make a Witch Wreath.

What You Will Need

A Polystyrene Wreath

Black Mesh Ribbon

Pins/Floral Pins

Coloured Card

Glue

Scissors

Small Twigs & Small Cable Tie.

First we painted our Polystyrene wreath ring black. The mesh we used is quite transparent, so we needed to create a dark background.

Then I got a length of mesh roughly 15 inches long, folded in half and then scrunched it to make a ruffle. Using pins I secured this into position on the wreath, and repeated this step all around the wreath until it was sufficiently covered.

Next we did the legs and boots. Starting by cutting two strips of green card approximately 1 1/2 inches wide and some little pieces of black card the same width, for the striped tights. I drew a boot freehand on a doubled up piece of card and then cut it out to get my two boots. Afterwards I stuck everything into place and stapled the legs to the back of the wreath.

For the Hat , I drew around a pot we have in the kitchen which was 4 inches in diameter, and a smaller ring inside of that one. I then cut the inner circle out which left me with the brim. I then rolled a cone shape with my piece of black card and sized it in the hole of the brim. Once I had the size I required, I glued it together using my glue gun. I then straightened up the edge of the bottom of the cone and cut little snips, only enough to fold and stick the cone to the brim.
I then added some pretty ribbon afterwards and pinned to the wreath.

The Broomstick

We collected some twigs from the hedges in the garden and arranged them into a broom like shape and cable tied them together. Using black cotton I secured it to the wreath.

It’s easier than you think to create such easy Halloween crafts. It just goes to show that you don’t always have to buy it, for it to look good. You can make something and get just as good results, if not better! #makeitdontbuyit with Hobbycraft and save yourself pounds!

Have you made your own Halloween decorations?

*We have made this wreath with the help of some fab Hobbycraft supplies which we were sent free of charge*

Like me? Then why not pin for later?
