It’s the third Halloween Wednesday, and I’ve got another Halloween DIY for you! This one is kind of a combination of my two previous ones, but it’s a DIY Halloween Wreath.

Instructions:

Start by making a bendy twig into a large circle. Twist the ends around the twig to make it stay together.

Wrap wire around the circle to make it more sturdy and enable you to shape it a little. (My twig wasn’t bendy enough so it was hard to shape it, so start with a skinnier one.)

Then start gluing twigs to your base. This takes a while but just keep building.

Use both bigger and smaller twigs to give a messier look to the wreath, we don’t want it to be tidy and ordered. Make them go all over the place.

It should now look something like this. Crazy and big.DIY Halloween Wreath » Jessica Andersdotter Make a spooky wreath for your door this Halloween, featuring a raven and a moon. Time to paint it black. This is probably easier with spray paint, but this works. It takes time – so much time – but it works. I didn’t want to buy spray paint because I’m lazy and didn’t have time. Hehe.DIY Halloween Wreath » Jessica Andersdotter Make a spooky wreath for your door this Halloween, featuring a raven and a moon.

Time to start working on the decorations! I decided to make a bird and a moon. Make a raven or a crow or a spider (ew spiders) if you want. I just transferred this picture of a crow (I decided it’s a raven though) onto white paper from my computer screen because I was too tired to draw my own one. :)))))))) It works this way too hehe.

Cut out the white bird and use it as a template on your black paper. It’s hard (impossible) to transfer to black paper, so that’s why we’re doing this extra step.

It looks great! 😀 This french second hand store in Oslo actually had real, stuffed ravens for a while. They were so cool and so creepy. But my boyfriend is so afraid of birds I couldn’t get one. Would be so Edgar Allan Poe-esque to have a raven in the book shelf.
