Monster Halloween wreath There’s only 2 little weeks left until Halloween, but that’s still plenty of time to transform your home into a trick-or-treater’s best nightmare. Take these DIY wreaths, for example. While the wreath is typically used around Christmas time, this makes it perfect to transform for ghastly Halloween usage. People expect traditional pine boughs and red ribbon when they think of wreaths, and you can catch them off guard with spooky adaptations that include monster fur and fake gore. It is the ability to change the mundane into the macabre that has made Halloween so popular.

Gore Halloween wreath Both of these projects are incredibly simple, and don’t require sewing. Just a quick trip to your local Halloween store or Joann’s, and about an hour of construction and you’ll have a Halloween wreath that’s far creepier than anything available at the stores. There’s also a tutorial for a Trinket Wreath at Craft Bits that’s as easy as plugging in a glue gun. For more inspiration, there are some unique Halloween wreath images on Google, as well as some creative takes on the Monster Wreath on Flickr.

    […] I have plenty of those left over, so they’re coming out again this year. It continued with building my own tombstones, though that’s more prop building than crafting. Because I can’t sew (no, really, I can’t), I’ve never really considered myself a crafter. But then came the hot glue gun. I made this Monster Wreath, and now I’m hooked. Yay, glue! […]
