Dollar Store Halloween Skull Wreath


Dollar Store Halloween Skull Wreath

I don’t normally do too much decorating for Halloween.  A pumpkin here, a mum there, maybe a centerpiece, but I do like to have a nice inviting wreath on the door for all those sweet little trick or treaters that come a knockin.  Something that says, yes we celebrate Halloween here.

I was going to just put up my spider wreath from last year but when I was in the dollar store, these skulls just called out my name, along with the black netting and bony hands.

To save a trip to the craft store for another wreath, I just used the grapevine wreath from last year.

Just ripped that spider right off of there and the wreath was ready for a makeover.

The black netting was stretched over the grapevine wreath and secured in the back with a wire.

I thought the skulls were kind of yellow and the hands were kind of gray, so all got a light coat of white spray paint.

The skulls and the hands were wired onto the wreath next, followed by a nice rubber snake.

As an added touch, a few spiders were hot glued to the skull heads. Now it just screams.. WELCOME!!!

I have three boys, so of course I had snakes and spiders just sitting around the house.
