Spooky Halloween Wreath Tutorial


The other night, I was in the mood to make a Halloween wreath. So I did!  In less than an hour, I had this cute and spooky creation!  Here’s how you can get the look.

Spooky Halloween Wreath

What you need:

– Wooden flat wreath form
– Wide 3″ ribbon (I purchased mine at Michaels)
– Halloween cupcake liners in various sizes
Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
Wilton 4″ black doilies
– Black and orange foam glitter vase filler (also available at Michaels)
– large vinyl letters or stickers to trace (you can also use a Cricut or Silhouette if you have those resources)
– scissors
– sparkly felt
– black twine

What you do:

1. Wrap the wreath using the 3″ ribbon
2. Cinch the middle of a medium-sized cupcake liner.
3. Glue cinched cupcake liner in place to a flattened cupcake liner.
4. Now glue another small cupcake liner on top of the one you just placed. Cinch
another small cupcake liner and glue it on top of that small cupcake liner.

5. Glue and adorn the middle with a glitter filler ball.
6. For some of the flowers, I took a simpler approach and placed two stacked liners on the black doily.
7. Glue cupcake flowers and glitter balls into place on your wreath. Let dry.
8. Now lay down your stickers onto the felt and cut out around them to make your felt letters. Glue your letters to a piece of twine and glue to the back of your wreath.

Now it’s time to show off your finished wreath to get your friends, family, and neighbors ready for Halloween!


It may have turned out a little more cute than spooky, but I like it that way!

Until next time Swellions!

Orange and Black Mary Jane Candy Wreath

I think the orange and black Mary Jane candies are one of those things you really LOVE around Halloween when you get them in your trick or treat bucket or you really HATE. Personally, I really love them. Always have. So to honor this candy, I decided to make a fun and festive wreath with them.

Here’s how you make it!

Orange and Black Mary Jane Candy Wreath

–Black and Orange Mary Jane Candies (I used two bags purchased at Walmart for this wreath)
– Styrofoam wreath form
– wide black ribbon
Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
– Glue gun

1. Wrap the wreath with the ribbon, gluing in place as you go with Aleene’s Tacky Glue. I used Tacky Glue for this part cause sometimes a glue gun can get clumpy under my ribbon and I didn’t want that.

2. Once wrapped, glue gun candies in place. I chose to do black and orange alternately. I did three seperate rings around the form.

3. Hang and enjoy. It really is that simple!

Now the hard part will be making sure no one gets their grubby hands on it! But maybe that’s an ok thing?

I hope you enjoyed this craft as much as I enjoyed making it!

Until next time Swellions!

Halloween Cupcake Liner Wreath

Ever since my friend Cheryl Ball made some cute decorations for work using these adorable orange and white polka dot cupcake holders, I’ve been scheming up a way I can use them in a project! I thought a super cute wreath would be right up my alley. And with the help of a little sparkle and bling along with some festive Martha Stewart Halloween stickers, I think it turned out adorable. Here’s how you make it!

Halloween Cupcake Liner Wreath

– flat wooden wreath ring
– 3 Large Cupcake liners in orange polka dot
– 14 Small cupcake liners in black&white and white&black (purchased at Michaels)
– Aleene’s Tacky Glue
– Large rhinestones (I used orange, yellow, clear, and dark orange/brown)
– Martha Stewart Halloween stickers
– Scissors
– Black spray paint
– Black acrylic paint or black spray paint
– foam brush

1. Paint the wreath frame with black spray paint or using foam brush and black acrylic paint. Lay on newspaper to paint and let dry.

2. Make cuts spaced out all the way around each cupcake liner. It will resemble a flower.

3. Arrange flowers in place on the wreath ring to space out before you glue.

4. As shown, glue black and white cupcake liners to 3 orange cupcake liners. Glue in place on wreath ring. Now add a dab of glue to the back of each of the black&white and white&black cupcake liners and press into place.

5. Add a dab of glue to each of the backs of each rhinestone and press and place. Let dry.

6. Press the Martha Stewart stickers into place and Voila! You are finished!!!

Here’s a cute detail of the stickers on top of the liners.
