Halloween is coming and what better way to welcome any guests or trick-or-treaters than a Spooky Feather Halloween Wreath on your door? And on top of that, this Halloween Wreath is so easy and inexpensive to make that you won’t believe it. The more spooky embellishments you’ll use, the spookier your wreath will be, so choose carefully! Leaving the wreath without any embellishments would be a great option, too, especially if you intend to use the wreaths to accompany other decorations, for example above a Halloween inspired Buffet. Read on to find all the information you need to make the feather wreath in less than an hour!

- Wrap the pipe cleaners around the wreath and boa to it to your wreath.
- Repeat with the second (and third if necessary) boa so there is no part of the foam wreath visible.
- Use some wire or your hot glue gun to attach your decorative items.
- Hang your wreath with a black ribbon or a wreath hanger.
- Tip: if you are worried that you will have blank spots in your wreath, try painting the foam wreath black before attaching the boas; that way the blank spots won’t be visible at all.
If you don’t like the all-black look, you can easily use two different colors of boas to interchange them and achieve an interesting look. Another idea is to just glue a few different colored feathers here and there with your hot glue gun to break up the blackness a little bit.

In case you can’t find a foam wreath, don’t be discouraged! You can use any other wreath to make it, like grapevine wreaths or wire wreaths. Another idea is to use a piece of a pool noodle and attach its ends together with duct tape to make a wreath form. Paint the pool noodle if needed, or just wrap it with black duct tape in order to be sure that no annoying colors will be visible when your feather boas are attached to it.
Keep in mind that if you like the technique, don’t hesitate to use it for making feather wreaths for other occasions, too, by using different colors of feathers, like gold or silver for New Year’s Eve or green and red for Christmas. The options are truly countless and adding some fun seasonal embellishments will make the wreaths even more up for the occasion.
