Wreaths, wreaths, wreaths. We’ve already established that I’m obsessed with them. (Exhibit A: Wreath roundup #1.) I keep finding more great Halloween wreath ideas nearly every time I open my browser. Here are some more tutorials that have recently gotten my attention!
Keep an eye on who’s coming and going around your house by decking your door with this creepy wreath designed by Resa of booturtle’s show and tell. The key ingredient in this design is a big bag of eyeball bouncy balls. (Genius!) She found hers at Target for $4; I’ve seen similar balls at similar prices at other retailers as well, including K-Mart and Wal-Mart, and Oriental Trading Company usually stocks something along these lines seasonally.

In a guest post at Ready, Set, Craft, Meg (of Mega Spooky and Mega Crafty) shared another ghoulish wreath idea. This one is made using the un-assembled bones of a styrofoam skeleton, but any kind of bone-shaped decorations can be assembled into a wreath like this one. [how to make a skeleton wreath]
Some of my favorite projects are always the ones that use materials in creative, unconventional ways. I was amazed when I found out that this bright, cheerful-yet-spooky wreath by Adri from Mama Mia was made using a plastic Halloween table cloth! [how to make a ruffly table cloth Halloween wreath]
Speaking of unconventional use of materials, how about a wreath made with… Toothpicks? Yes, that’s right, toothpicks! The spiky look is perfect for Halloween without being too overstated, so it would work well with a lot of different decorating styles. The idea is from a blog aptly named The Magic of Ordinary Things, where Kristol shares all kinds of unexpected craft revelations. [how to make a toothpick Halloween wreath]
Call me crazy, but this monster wreath shared by callakat at Craftster is totally my brand of whimsical. (I know, I know, whimsy isn’t supposed to border on bizarre, but I’m weird like that.) It reminds me of Sulley from “Monsters, Inc.” in an odd way. And the best part? It’s held together with hot glue, so non-seamsters like me can still get in on the fun! [how to make a monster wreath]
If you’re in the market for something more versatile and customizable, this cute tulle wreath by Taylor-Ann of My Modish Mood may be just what you’re looking for. The simple design has a dress-it-up-or-dress-it-down sensibility: Add a realistic crow or silk floral to match a formal decor, attach some skulls for a spooky look, or use a smiling jack-o’-lantern to acheive a cute effect.
