Cut or break apart the Halloween door sign. You can really use anything to decorate the wreath. There are so many options at the Dollar Tree, for only $1!  

We chose the cute three piece witch door hanger (pictured).  It was connected by ribbon so we just cut the ribbon apart, and now we have decor for our cute halloween wreath.

Take one of the garlands, and wrap it around the wreath form.

It does not need to be perfect.  I just started wrapping! I didn’t even use anything to attach it, but you can use a dab of hot glue to better secure the garland to the wreath form.

Once the first garland is wrapped around the wreath form, add the second garland in the same way.

I used a hot glue gun to attach each piece of the de-constructed door hanger to our wreath. My son told me, he likes the wreath better without the witch parts, but I won!

  1. I made this wreath and bought enough for my friend and I to craft them together. It was easy and fun, and cost was minimal. I could not find the witch hanger so I took some window clings, glued them to paperboard (Cheerios box!) and then cut them out. I also added some foam stickers of ghosts and skulls. Very cute!
