a wreath with a skull for a Dia de Muertos concept

It’s October, and that means it’s time to get ready for Halloween! The Courtland Towers blog is here to help with ideas for DIY wreaths to hang on your front door. Greet your guests with a cool or creepy wreath that is fitting for this fun and spooky holiday.

Sugar Skull Wreath from Crafted Sparrow

This wreath is fabulous and super adorable. The contrast of the colorful flowers against the black and white striped wreath stands out brilliantly. Following the traditional style of El Dia de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, from which Halloween originated, this wreath is perfect for this holiday.

Wriggling Snake Wreath from Easy Life Hacks

This jet black wreath won’t soon be forgotten by your apartment guests. Make it from a plain grapevine wreath, some plastic or rubber toy snakes, black acrylic paint, black spray paint, and some floral wiring. Store it in a box wrapped in tissue paper and use it again next year!

Candy Corn Wreath from Woman’s Day

This colorful and festive wreath is made from styrofoam wrapped in black duct tape and pieces of candy corn glued onto it. Attach a black ribbon to easily hang it on the front door of your apartment.

Spooky Spider Wreath from Chicken Scratch NY

This wreath is more adorable than anything else we’ve seen this season. With the combination of orange and black colors, it is sure to stand out! To make it you will need a grapevine wreath, black spray paint, large fake spider, wooden letters to spell “BOO”, orange craft paint, floral wire or hot glue, white yarn, and a blunt needle.

Googly Eyes Halloween Wreath from No. 2 Pencil

With a whole lot of ping pongs and googly eyes, this eyeball wreath is fun and only slightly creepy. Anyone who comes to your door won’t be able to shake the uncomfortable feeling that they are being watched.
