Make a sugar skull wreath the decorate your front door with this Halloween. This is a sponsored post but all ideas and opinions are my own.
Add some spooky color to your front door with this festive sugar skull wreath. Inspired by calaveras used in Dia de los Muertos celebrations, this colorful wreath combines creepy skeletons from the dollar store with brightly colored flowers to create a piece of Halloween door decor that is muy festivo!
Supplies used to make this sugar skull wreath:
- Darice Black Colorado Pine Wreath Seasonal Decor
- Plastic skeletons
- Oly-Fun Fabric in a variety of bright colors
- Flower dies and die cutting machine
- Hot glue gun
- Skull battery operated light strand
Step one: Cut rectangles of Oly-Fun fabric. Place the flower dies on the fabric and use your die cutting machine to cut out multiple flowers.
Step two: Assemble the flowers. I like to use a toothpick to start the process. Roll the fabric strip around itself, starting at the narrow end. The larger end gets hot glued to the bottom of the fabric roll to help hold the flower together. Make all the flowers (the number of flowers will depend on the size of your wreath!)
Step three: Wrap the wire for the skull light strand around the wreath. Tuck the battery compartment behind the wreath.
Step four: Hot glue the smallest flowers to the skulls of the skeletons to make a floral “crown. Then hot glue the skeletons to the wreath.
Step five: Hot glue the medium and large flowers to the wreath.
The Halloween sugar skull wreath is creepy and colorful at the same time! The Oly-Fun fabric is water resistant and doesn’t fray, so this wreath will hold up well. The lights give it an eerie glow when the sun goes down. Have fun crafting and creating your own holiday decor! If you love sugar skulls, check out all my tutorials with calaveras!
