DIY Halloween Wreath

Make a spooky first impression with this Halloween wreath. Phoenix-based interior designer, Emily Yeates, shows us how!


  • wreath form
  • hot glue gun
  • thin black and white striped ribbon
  • thick black ribbon
  • thick black and white striped ribbon
  • thin accent ribbon (skull pattern pictured)


  1. Wrap three quarters of the wreath form with the thin black and white striped ribbon and hot glue the ends in place.
  2. Wrap the remaining wreath form with the black ribbon. This portion will hang at the bottom.
  3. Tie a bow with the thick black and white ribbon and trim the ends.
  4. Hot glue the bow to the lower black covered portion of the wreath.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4, hot gluing the skull accent ribbon over the top of the thick black and white ribbon.
