10 Unique Halloween Wreaths
Orange Boo Wreath
Brighten your door with this bold orange wreath. Start by wrapping orange yarn around a wreath form—you can use one made of foam or straw. Then create a web pattern across the wreath with black yarn. To accessorize, cut out Halloween-themed shapes and words from felt or foam (or buy the ready-made kind), and glue to the wreath.

Spooky Owl Wreath
This wreath is both sophisticated and festive. Elegant black and white gets the Halloween treatment with yarn and a wreath form. Wrap white and black yarn around the wreath, and then glue on ribbon, branches, and a cute owl to give it a finished, spooky look.

Bixby the Black Cat Wreath
Visitors will actually be happy to come across a black cat’s path when you’ve got this cute wreath on the door. Wrap black ribbon around a foam wreath, and glue four black feather boas to the piece to create the “fur.” The ears are made from felt scraps and wooden dowels tucked into the foam, while the whiskers are made from jewelry wire. You can even add eyeballs to the cat with foam balls, paint, and a black marker.

Canning Lid and Washi Tape Halloween Wreath
Recycle those old canning lids to create a festive, patterned wreath. Cut an opening in the wreath and wrap the whole piece in black ribbon. Then slide the canning rings through the opening and glue the wreath back together. Loop a ribbon around as a hanger.

This one is a slightly lighter take on the skeleton motif. Glue glitter to a store-bought skeleton using Mod Podge. Then wrap orange ribbon on a wreath form and attach the skeleton to the bottom of the piece. Accent it with a pretty ribbon bow beneath.

Sugar Skull Wreath
Celebrate Dia de los Muertos with a traditional sugar skull on your door. Spray paint a grapevine wreath white. Then paint a skull cutout purchased from a craft store (or you can make your own from cardboard). Glue that and fabric flowers to the wreath and hang it with a ribbon.

Pinecone Monster Halloween Wreath
This silly wreath is a fun way to incorporate a fall classic: pinecones. Glue them to a foam wreath and spray paint green. Then create eyeballs out of foam balls and attach them to the top part of the wreath. Cut out “teeth” from a white foam board and create a bow from fabric.

Pumpkin Patch Wreath
If you’re not too crazy about having skeletons or monsters on your front door, go the natural route with pumpkins. Wrap green fabric around a wreath form and glue moss on top. Then spray-paint pumpkins gold or decorate with other accents. Attach the pumpkins to the bottom portion—you can also add twigs or berries to complete the look. Use a pretty orange bow to hang your wreath.

Nevermore Halloween Wreath
For a darker look, try this gothic-inspired door accent. With black crepe paper, cut out feather shapes and glue them in layers on the wreath. Take a fake raven (found at a craft store) and glue to the wreath. Create a long bow out of crepe paper and attach it at the bottom of the piece.

Halloween Bat Wreath
To create this easy-to-make door decor, all you need is a foam wreath, yarn, black cardstock, and washi tape. Wrap gray yarn around the wreath shape—you don’t have to glue it if it’s wrapped tightly, so you can use the bare wreath form for a different season. Cut out bat shapes in the cardstock and attach them to the wreath. To finish, string yarn across the middle of the wreath and add washi tape to it, so it looks like bunting.
