I am big on all Holiday’s, I believe festive activities and decorations brings imagination and memories into a kids life. My son loves going through tubs of decorations with me. It’s like Christmas in October for both of us – Usually, my thoughts are, “How cute! When did I buy this?” I can’t control myself when I see decorations, Something I will be forever working on. On top of shopping, I enjoy making decorations especially if they are cheap.

So here is a cute and simple wreath that anyone can make with a few simple items:

  • Styrofoam Wreath
  • Ribbon of your choice (9 + Foot Roll)
  • Spiders/Skulls (What items you think match your ribbon best)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors

 

Step 1: Glue the first part of the ribbon to the styrofoam wreath. Like so :

Step 2: Wrap the ribbon throughout the wreath:

Step 3: Cut off the excess ribbon (Be sure to leave enough to cover the styrofoam) Hot glue the ribbon to cover it. Then cut the remaining ribbon into two pieces :
