DIY Mummy Wreath

DIY Mummy Wreath

It’s that time of year to start thinking of Halloween Decorating!  This year I wanted to create a mummy wreath.  To make this wreath you will need the following:

  • White fabric to cover the wreath
  • Black & Gray fabric for the flowers
  • Styrofoam wreath
  • Needle & Thread
  • Crow

I started out tearing up a white pillowcase.  I used the cuff of the pillowcase to cover a 16″ styrofoam wreath, then I used strips winding around the entire wreath overlapping where one strip ended and a new one began to keep the strips from falling off the wreath.  After completely covering the wreath in the white strips I tied additional strips sporadically around the wreath.

I used some black fabric I had left over from a witches hat I made last year and some gray wool ribbon my sister gave to me to make the flowers.  To make the flowers I just cut strips, twisted the strips and then in a circular pattern formed a rosette.  I used some thread to keep the rosettes from unraveling.  Once I had enough flowers made I tacked them onto the wreath with a needle and thread.

The last step was to put the crow onto the wreath!  You could hot glue the crow on but I just sat mine on there.
