51 DIY Halloween Wreaths
1. Simple Crow Wreath
If you don’t wanna make a fuss about Halloween, this simple crow wreath is perfect for you. It needs absolutely zero effort to make and is a perfect last minute project
Just glue some fake crows to a grapevine wreath and hang it up. Pretty Halloween-y, innit?
2. Colorful Pumpkin Wreath
Pumpkins and Halloween go together like turkeys and Thanksgiving. A colorful pumpkin wreath is a typical Halloween wreath that needs very little effort from you to shine.
Spray paint some artificial mini pumpkins and gourds, and glue them to a circular wreath base. And if you don’t want to add a lot of colors and keep your wreath spooky? Go with orange and black paints.
3. Cupcake Liner Wreath
Want something more creative? Try making a wreath using cupcake liners.
Gather a bunch of orange and black liners (‘cause those are like the Halloween colors), take some of them, and pin them together in the form of a flower. Glue or pin several such flowers to a foam wreath base and you’re done!
4. Painted Clothespin Wreath
Those little clothespins have more than one purpose, people! For example, they can also be used to make a festive wreath.
For a Halloween clothespin wreath, you need to cut out a cardboard ring for the base and glue spray-painted clothespins to it. Go for the festive colors like orange, yellow, black, etc. to paint the pins.
You can hang up your wreath using a large black satin ribbon.
5. Spooky Chevron Wreath
This wreath is cute and creepy! Wrap a wreath base with chevron fabric and embellish with spooky spiders. Crow feathers, fake spider web, and glitter balls kinda add to the creepiness, don’t ya think?
6. Pumpkin and Dead Flower Wreath
Just like how the spring wreaths are filled with beautiful flowers and greens, this one is too, except they are dead, you know, to get that spooky/creepy Halloween feeling.
Get those dead/dried-out flowers (faux or real) and stick them to a black wreath base (either paint it black or wrap it with black ribbon) along with some greens and mini artificial pumpkins.
7. Big Spooky Crow Wreath
Does this wreath remind you of Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries, or is it just me? The spooky and slick black thing this wreath has got going on is just perfect for Halloween.
Just embellish a painted grapevine wreath with a big toy crow, faux dead flowers or glitter floral stems, and add a black ribbon—that’s you need to do for this.
8. Halloween Witch Wreath
Witches are my favorite part of Halloween. Whether they are a part of costumes or decors, no one ever seems to get tired of those spooky beings!
Some cutting and gluing of colorful fabrics, and you get your very own witch wreath. Add in a wooden sign with a spooky message as a finishing touch!
9. Spider Web Wreath
How about a spider web for a wreath? Cover an embroidery hoop with faux spider web and glue some creepy spider toys to it, and bravo you have a very realistic “handmade” spider web wreath. I have a strong feeling that your guests will be spooked by it.
10. Cute Ghost Halloween Wreath
Everyone tries to go for creepy and scary ghosts on Halloween. But you don’t have to go along with the masses.
Make a wreath with cute little ghosts on an embroidery hoop—people will surely go Aww! Surround it with poms and stitch in a cute little spider along with the ghosts—it will look absolutely adorable!
11. Mysterious Mummy Wreath
I have never seen a cuter and more hilarious mummy before! The way the googly eyes are peeking out is mysterious and SUPER CUTE. The wreath is taped with muslin or cheesecloth which act as the mummy’s bandages.
Don’t add any embellishments to this wreath other than what’s absolutely necessary—it’s better to keep the wreath minimalistic.
12. Candy Corn Wreath
Make a tasty wreath this Halloween with sweet candy corn. Glue several little candy corns to a styrofoam wreath base and put it up. The glue will make sure no one plucks them out and eats them!
Hang up your wreath using a black ribbon.
13. Fall Cookie Wreath
Here’s another sweet wreath for you. Welcome the Fall with this autumn leaves wreath that is made using cookie dough!
You can use a readily available cookie dough or a simple sugar cookie mix to avoid the process of making the dough. Paint the cookie leaves and glue them to a circular cardboard base.
14. Halloween Skull Wreath
Now this one is just plain scary and I love it! You’ll need to gather up some spooky styrofoam skulls and paint them black. Tie them together with a super-strong wire and form the wreath.
For extra spookiness, you can add LED battery-led lights to the eye sockets of the skulls. Brrr.
15. Eyeballs Halloween Wreath
Doesn’t it freak you out to see human body parts detached? Well, it does so for me. And if there are people who are anything like me, an eyeball wreath will freak them out.
Make those artificial eyeballs with ping pong balls and googly eyes, and glue them onto a straw wreath base.
16. Felt Blood Wreath
How about some blood and gore this Halloween? This wreath will let you achieve that.
Get a blood-red colored felt, cut it out into circles, and fold and pin them to the wreath base. It sorta looks like red blood cells squished together—perfectly gross!
You can also add a cute little spider to this wreath if you feel like it.
17. Black Cat Wreath
A black cat isn’t just a good Halloween costume but can be a wreath too. And it’s a witch’s favorite pet.
Wrap a styrofoam wreath base with fuzzy black yarn. Then glue the felt cat ears and black pipe cleaners (for the whiskers!) to the wreath.
18. Fabric Candy Corn Wreath
Here’s another candy corn wreath, but this time we are not using actual candy corn. All you need is muslin, colorful canvas fabric, and a bunch of pins. Wrap a foam base with muslin, then pin the folded fabric pieces in the color combination of candy corns.
Don’t forget the black ribbon!

You ever made paper roses as a kid? Then that skill is gonna come in handy here. Even if you haven’t, no worries, this DIY is pretty easy.

23. Fancy Spider Web Wreath
This spider web wreath is chic.

32. Skeleton Wreath
Alright, this seems downright creepy. But hey it’s Halloween, and what’s better than a creepy skeleton wreath?

Wrap a foam base with a black feather boa and add a skull and skeleton hands. Then add a banner saying “Beware”. This wreath looks chicer rather than proper scary—who said skeleton wreaths couldn’t be stylish?
