DIY HALLOWEEN WREATH for under $10.00 at Dollar Tree
Living in a tiny house, the decorating options can not be as extravagant as I may want at times. I am always looking for ways to decorate, while keeping the space available in my home. One of the easiest ways to decorate for the upcoming season is with a wreath and this DIY Halloween Wreath is the perfect way to welcome all the ghosts and ghouls of the season.
This was an easy, project that took about 4-5 hours, and I know you will love it!

Gather materials –
- (1) 14.25-in. Metal Wreath Rings
- Orange Sparkle Tulle Decorative Mesh
- Black Sparkle Tulle Decorative Mesh
- Purple Sparkle Tulle Decorative Mesh
- 13 Black Tinsel Stems
- 13 Orange Tinsel Stems
- Center Seasonal Saying
- (1) Colored Bow
- Hot Glue Gun *OPTIONAL*
- Wreath Hanger *OPTIONAL*
Once you have gathered all the materials, begin by taking your pipe cleaners and fold them in half and cut. Continue to do this so that you have 24 Black Tinsel Stems and 24 Orange Stems. You can do all black if you prefer, I thought it would be neat to alternate – in the end it really does not matter much.
Once you have all the stems cut, grab your wreath and fold the stems in half again and attach them to your frame. Each section should have 8 stems for a total of 48 throughout the wreath.
Put the frame aside, and grab one of your tulle mesh colors and your ruler. Measure and cut 48 pieces measuring 8″ – 9″ each. I did a variety and ended up using all my mesh.
Take a piece of cut mesh, and proceed to fold/roll into a circle pattern.
Grab your wreath frame and place the folded mesh between the two ends of the stems and wrap until it is firmly attached (takes about 2-3 rotations of the stems).
Be sure to fold in the ends of the stems, to prevent injuries.
Continue to attach the tulle mesh until each of the stems is used, let the colors intersperse and be to your liking – there is no right or wrong way to do this!
Do not worry if spots look bare, when the wreath is complete those bare spots will fill in.
Grab your center piece, I chose a hanging sentiment with a pumpkin outline, so I removed the two pieces and used the inside of the sentiment for the center of the wreath. I was able to use the netting to keep the sentiment firm, but this can be hot glued or tied down to the wreath.
I signed the back of the cardboard and once I had the sentiment placed I attached the bow, which I was able to use the extra stems to attach it.
Once done, the hardest decision will be where you want to display your creepy wreath.
Finished size will be approx. 16″ high x 16″ wide x 3″ deep
Let your wreath greet all the ghosts and ghouls in your neighborhood!
