For my Halloween wreath this year, I wanted something glam and blingy, but that still had a spooky feel to it.  When I found this fuzzy owl at Dollar Tree, inspiration struck.  I grabbed some boas and feathers to match the owl, and got started crafting a girly Halloween wreath.

Supplies: (almost everything came from Dollar Tree)
  • Styrofoam Wreath Form
  • Boa
  • Feathers
  • Sewing pins
  • Owl
  • Diamond table scatter
  • Alcohol Ink

Step one:  Wrap half the wreath with the black boa.  I used a white wreath form so I first wrapped it in black fabric.

Step two:  Using the wire that is in the owl’s feet, attach the owl to the wreath form.

Step three:  Pin the feathers onto the bottom half of the wreath.  I arranged 4 feathers in a flower shape and pinned them on.  You could also hot glue them on.

Step four:  Color the table scatter with alcohol ink.  Wrap the end of the scatter with wire and press the wire into the wreath form.

Your glamorous wreath is now ready to be displayed!  It’s perfect for Halloween without being gory or scary.  If you don’t like owls, crows are another option.  You could use yellow boas and orange feathers to create more of a fall themed wreath that you can display from September through November.  Have fun crafting and creating!
