BWA HA! HA! HA!!!
It’s Halloween time; and everywhere you can see spooky, scary and ugly witches or spiders or skeletons hanging around. The stores are filled up with pumpkin lanterns; fall leaves’ wreath, sparkling orange/black bulbs, etc.
This was my 1st Halloween in the US, and I wanted to join the celebration by decorating my house. The idea was to pick up a DIY wreath. It was a fun project, making small-sized Witches, Pumpkins, spiders, webs.
I bought a 2″ width wreath for DIY from Michaels and used up some of the brown, black, orange and white wool from my left over.
My Halloween wreath contains:
I used the brown wool to make a dark base for the wreath.
- The orange yarn was for the pumpkins. I made eight pumpkins following the instructions on the Petals to Picot- Pumpkin;
- The pumpkins are filled with tissue paper or napkins to make a 3D pumpkin.
Witches, Webs, Spiders:-
- I followed Favecrafts – Halloween wreath pattern to make witches, spiders, cobwebs.
- I picked up a few straws from my garden too. These were fallen straws from trees.
- Cleaned them and used these straws to make witch’s broom.
- Also, added a few extra cleaned straws around give the ultimate rusty and ugly look.
Assembled all the items and stitched or hooked them, using paddle wire, on the wreath. Finally, the beautiful ‘Halloween Wreath‘ was ready.
- Wire Wreath Frame size: 12″
- Pop out the eyes of spiders and pumpkins
- Add BOO applique, instead of witches.
- You can use wire Wreath frame instead of this craft ring.
- Put some shining tassels or orange and black colour in the bottom.
- Check out the store for more decoration ornaments.
- You can use paddle wire to fix your Halloween items to the wreath frame or sew them from behind.
Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

- You can buy a door hook and hang your wreath or make a hanging loop and nail it on the door or the wall.
- Choose a bigger wreath and add these along with BOO applique made of Yarn, Fabric or Craft Paper.

- Note: you can play around with different branded yarns as far as they give the synchronous flow of the pattern using a constant crochet hook.
- You can either go for the yarns with the same recommended crochet hook OR decide the yarn and change the crochet hooks along with the tightness on the crochet stitches as you proceed with the pattern.
