Here at Tiny Prints, Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year. How can you resist all the tricks and treats? (We can’t!) That’s why we created this fun witch wreath—guaranteed to make every visitor to your doorstep let out a little chuckle.

What You’ll Need

  • Foam ring (we went with a medium size)
  • Spool of black tulle
  • Felt
  • Ribbon trim
  • Decorative bird (optional)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Stapler

Step 1: Get Wrapping

Start by gluing the end of the tulle to the foam ring, this will be your starting point. From there, wrap the entire ring with tulle so it is completely covered. When you get to the end, glue to hold it in place.

Step 2: Gather Round

Next you’ll want to start gathering the tulle to make the “skirt.” We found it easier to do this section by section. (3-5 inch sections at a time.) Next, add glue to a small section of the ring and attach the gathered tulle. Work your way around the ring.

Step 3: Staple Away

Once you have a full “skirt,” staple the tulle to the ring too. This will keep it more secure and prevent it from unraveling.

Step 4: Do the Legwork

Now it’s time to get creative. We used felt to make the legs and the shoes. You can pick any color you want. Then we added ric rac trim for the witch’s socks.  Again, let your imagination run wild with this step and make her legs and shoes as fun and crazy as you’d like.

Step 5: Add the Finishing Touches

We topped off our wreath by gluing on a spooky little crow. You could also try adding a spider or a miniature broom. The choice is yours. Then hang and enjoy!
