Halloween Chevron Wreath {tutorial}!!

{{Happy Halloween}}
lol – I know it’s a little early but I just can’t help myself!
I think I’ve ordered every chevron color that is in existence. 
Yes, I
may have a problem.
 
But I thought — how cute would it be to make a
Halloween wreath out of THREE of my favorite things — CHEVRON, BAKERS
TWINE
and GLITTER???

 

So that’s what I did. And let me tell you — this is a fast and easy project. And the end result is a whimsical tribute to one of my favorite holidays!!

Here’s how to make one:

  
 1. Supplies — Wreath Form. Fabric cut into 3 inch wide strip, black cardstock, bakers twine, black glitter and coordinating fabric to hang the wreath.
2. Wrap the wreath form with the chevron fabric.
3. Hot glue bakers twine onto the wreath. I get my baker’s twine from Twisted Sugar Twine. Pull the twine tight.
4. Cut out bats. I made mine with my Silhouette. But you could punch them out with a punch too.
5. Glitter the bats. I Mod Podged them and then sprinkled the glitter over the top.
6. Hot glue the bats to the twine.
7.Hang the wreath with some ribbon, or I hung mine with a couple strips of black and white chevron.
8. Hang up the wreath. I used 3M Command Hooks. That way if I want to take it down later, there is no hole or damage to my Aqua Pantry Door!

 

So tell me — have you started making Halloween projects? What are YOU making?? I would love to know. I made ANOTHER Halloween Wreath today — with materials all from the Dollar Store. I’ll be sharing that one next week :) It’s kind of a Gothic/Glam Halloween Wreath!

xoxo

And speaking of Halloween — have you seen the Haunted Mirrors floating around blogland?? I made one the other day and it inspired me to make a Spooky Mirror round up over at Babble. Check them out – they are SUPER spooky and fun!!

    I know I’m about a year behind these comments but I made this wreath today.

    How much fabric did you use?

    I had to use 3 strips 42″ long and 3″ wide. Your instructions just said strip of fabric 3″ wide.

  9. Hey Jen, I just wanted to let you know that I used a picture and linked to your chevron fabric wreath as my “pinspiration” for the Pinspired and Rewired Wreath challenge tonight. My post was on the Butterfly Paint Chip wreath I created, and ever since I saw your wreath at Halloween, I’ve been wanting to do my own version of a fabric-wrapped wreath. So thanks for inspiring me!!
