5 Decorative Halloween Wreath Projects for Kids
Candy Pattern Wreath1 of 6
Starting with a decorative ceiling medallion, such as a lightweight Fypon medallion, available at most hardware stores. Cut the orange and black licorice candies to equal sizes and then attach to the medallion using a hot glue gun. Create your own pattern for the holidays. The rope-like twisted effect of the candy makes this project resemble a big, elegant lollipop when completed. You can also try creating a pattern using candy corn, or other treats. When creating wreaths with food items, give the finished wreath a coating of clear polymer spray to protect the items on the wreath for long-term use.
Creepy Peeper Wreath2 of 6
Purchase a grapevine wreath at a craft store and a bag of candy eyeballs (typically chocolate wrapped in tinfoil). Stick pieces of wire through the back of each wrapped candy and then twist the wire to various points on the wreath. The finished product will resemble a mass of creepy eyes staring out at your guests. This one's especially fun if you won't be home and plan to leave a bowl of candy for trick-or-treaters. Be sure to add a note that reads, "Only take one. We're watching you!"
Spider Invasion Wreath3 of 6
To set the spooky mood for Halloween, create a spider wreath on a ceiling medallion. Simply paint the inside ring of the medallion a deep orange of exterior paint (and mix in some glow-in-the-dark paint for added fun), then glue on individual black plastic spiders that can be purchased at any craft or seasonal store.
Caught in the Web Wreath4 of 6
This one's probably the easiest project to complete. Simply purchase a grapevine wreath at a craft store and some decorative Halloween webbing. Wrap some of the webbing around the wreath to resemble a spider web. Then attach some black plastic spider rings to complete the look.
Autumn Accents Wreath5 of 6
Purchase exterior paints in autumn colors and add to embossments on a ceiling medallion. Dark shades of orange and yellow painted on an elegant style medallion then be hung as a standout feature in an entryway. You can use orange and black paint to make one for Halloween, or use some more neutral autumn colors and keep your decoration up well after October 31.
