Black and White Striped Halloween Wreath

It shouldn’t come as any surprise by now that I love stripes. I LOVE them! I have created a number of striped projects over the years, but the one that I keep coming back to are striped wreaths. I love them! I love having a different striped wreath for each season and holiday. It just feels right! This black and white striped Halloween wreath was meant to happen. Nothing screams Halloween to me more than classic black and white.

If you haven’t ever made a wreath before, don’t get too scared about making one. They are easy, fun, and typically cost a lot less to make than you have to pay for a finished wreath.

How to Make a Halloween Wreath

To get started, glue the end of the ribbon to the straw wreath and wrap the ribbon around. Keep wrapping until you run out of ribbon. Glue the next piece where the last one left off. Do this until you have wrapped the entire wreath with the striped ribbon.

For these wreaths, I always like to start with the more flat, bulky items that are basically there for a background. In this case, I used the velvet leaves. I love the texture that these leaves bring, but I didn’t want them to be the main focal point of the wreath.Black and White WreathI glued the leaves to the bottom corner of the wreath to create a canvas area of where I would be putting the rest of my wreath decorations.

Next, I put in my larger items. I went with the pumpkins because I had multiple pumpkins I was trying to incorporate. I spaced them out throughout the black leaves and glued them into place.

Black and White Halloween WreathMaking your own Halloween wreath shouldn’t be intimidating! It is such a fun, creative experience! I love how this one turned out. The lack of color was perfect for the holiday and black and white is always a good idea in my book!
