15 Frugal DIY Halloween Wreaths!

15 Frugal DIY Halloween WreathsOk I know that Halloween is still a little while away but if you want to get your craft on you need some time to gather your supplies, watch for deals, and get crafting.

Plus Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. It just happens to also be my twins Liam & Carly’s birthday. They are turning 9 this year! OMGosh my babies are going to be NINE!

But yeah…back to Halloween wreaths. I have scouted the internet to find you 15 frugal DIY Halloween wreaths. There are TONS of great Halloween wreath ideas out there but I wanted to focus on frugal – nothing too expensive and wreaths that most anyone could do. I am only what I would call semi-crafty. So I thought these were all wreaths that I could actually make.

To view the instructions for each wreath click on the link above the picture. Each site has great instructions on how to make that particular wreath.

I hope you enjoy the collection!

Skeleton Wreath – This wreath is super frugal and easy too. I have seen these miniature skeletons at most of the mass merchandiser stores (Walmart, Kmart, Target, maybe even Dollar Tree!) and you just take them apart, glue them on a wreath form and spray paint the whole she-bang with some metallic spray paint. Love it!

DIY: Balloon Wreath Tutorial

Balloon WreathI made this balloon wreath to use for our families birthdays. I hang it on the door in the house for a few days before & after their birthday. On the day of their party I hang it on the outside of the door. I have glitter foam letters with each child’s first initial that I put on the wreath at the birthday. I was totally inspired by A Grande Life!

Items needed:

  • Craft wreath. I used straw wreath with the plastic cover intact. A foam wreath would also work.
  • Straight pins, wig/ T pins or any kind of long pin
  • Balloons. Lots of balloons. The amount needed will depend on the size of your wreath. I used about 150
  • Foam/wood letter, picture frame or any other item you want to personalize your wreath

Instructions:

  • Get comfy, this is going to take awhile. I did mine while watching TV
  • Using 1 pin per balloon attach by pushing the pin through the balloon & into the wreath. I folded my balloons in half because they were large & I alternated directions with each one. I attached them in a line all the way around. then started another line above/below that. I think you could also just attach them in sections & it would make no difference.
  • After you have finished attaching all the balloons you think you need, hang it & make sure none of the bare wreath is showing from any angle.
  • Add your personalized item if using & celebrate!

Easy Frugal Christmas Wreath

Easy Frugal Christmas Wreath

Easy Frugal Christmas Wreath

I love Christmas wreaths & I love the use of deco mesh in them that is so popular right now. What I do not love is the price of pre made wreaths that are a minimum of $25.00 and go up to the too ridiculous to mention price. I didn’t want to do a 100% deco mesh wreath because of cost & I wasn’t going for the Candyland look. I made 4 of these for about $8.00 each. This project was fast & easy. I bought all my wreaths & a roll of deco mesh at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. The bows I bought at Big Lots. If you wanted to wait to make these after Christmas you could make them even cheaper with clearance prices!

What you will need:

  • Artificial greenery wreath
  • Roll of deco mesh (I used one full roll for my 4 wreaths)
  • Bow &/or other decorations
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Prepare your wreath by removing any tags & fluffing out all the pieces
  2. Unroll a few feet of your deco mesh (do not cut it yet)
  3. Loosely fold the mesh in half and pinch the end together
  4. Place the end of the deco mesh into the wreath so the end is not showing
  5. Take a piece of greenery from each side of the deco mesh & twist the greenery around it just like a twist tie. (This secures the deco mesh without needing any other fasteners)
  6. Move down the wreath a few inches keeping the deco mesh loose and make a poof
  7. Put the mesh down into the wreath and secure it the same way
  8. Repeat all the way around then cut the deco mesh before securing the last section.
  9. Secure the last piece & be sure to tuck the end inside the wreath so it will not be seen.
  10. Attach your bow using the wire on the bow or looping a piece of greenery through the back.
  11. Hang wherever you like & enjoy! (I used large suction cups to hang mine on my windows. You could also use Command hooks.)

I love mine! They look so nice on all of my windows & I know they will last for years to come.
