Halloween Skull Wreath

make-this-fun-halloween-skull-wreath-using-floracraft-foamToday I have a fun Halloween skull wreath!  I’m not going to lie. When I start a wreath I have a basic idea…but there are so many embellishments that can I add to it that I never am sure what direction it will end up! (and isn’t that one of the fun things about creating!) Here are some odds and ends I started with:

supplies

Here are the Supplies I actually used to make this project:

  • FloraCraft® EPS Foam Skull
  • FloraCraft® Foam Cutter
  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Wreath, 14 in
  • Striped Ribbon
  • Skeleton Hands (found at the dollar store)
  • Acrylic Paint: White, Black and Cream
  • Low-Temp Glue Gun & Glue
  • Creepy Cloth Netting
  • Halloween Sign
  • Fabric (any color you want!)

Instructions:

I painted the skull (cover in cream and white then add black in all the grooves!) and then I actually painted the skeleton hands to match.

I wrapped the wreath form with strips of greenish yellow fabric and then covered with the creepy cloth (gluing as a I went).

I wanted the skull to sit flat on the wreath….so I put it through some minor surgery! I used the foam cutter to cut off the back of the skull.

Then I just played around with the placement of all the elements until I figured out exactly how I liked it.  There are so many possibilities that looked good!

It was creepy both ways and I loved it…but ended up using the one with sign because I love it so much!

I secured everything onto the wreath with glue and then hung it up!

I still love the other version too though! How would you create your Halloween wreath?
