Halloween Wreath

Frugal Friday!

Halloween Wreath 003

I love making something pretty out of stuff I already have. This Halloween wreath was a cinch to make and cost me nothing. Even if you have to buy the materials it’s easily under $5 ! Now that is my kind of holiday decor! As you can see below my son got involved too, although not making the craft so much as playing with it. Have fun and remember cute doesn’t always have to mean expensive!

  1. Gather your materials. You will need scissors, Halloween garland , some black and orange ribbon, and a cardboard round. Our cardboard came from a frozen pizza ( Thank you Mr. Newman) but any sturdy cardboard will do. I didn’t use glue but if you want to hot glue would work great.Halloween Wreath
  2. Start by cutting the middle of the round out.Halloween Wreath
  3. Tie your garland on and start wrapping. Our garland is 8 feet long. Don’t be fooled my son isn’t wrapping it, well he tried but I did the craft.Halloween Wreath
  4. Keep going until you are done , tie the end and tuck any left over garland. Beware of children stealing it and using your wreath as a hat.Halloween Wreath
  5. Add a fun bow- just loop it through and tie it right on top!Halloween Wreath
  6. Pop it outside and get in the spirit! Spend your extra money on more candy, cause we all know the first bag is for us!

    Oh this is totally cooler than anything I’d think to do with that stuff — and I actually saw some at Michael’s today!
    Hmmm, I’m pretty sure I’m going back tomorrow — I’ll have to pick some up since they’re having the HUGE Halloween sale!!
