While this video isn’t exactly the same as the materials, we think it showcases how to make a Halloween wreath stylish without being over the top scary!
Stylish Halloween Wreath Directions:
- Give the flowers and greenery a couple of coats of the black spray paint. Don’t bother if the original colors pop up here and there because it will rather add texture to the wreath.
- If you have some white or ivory flowers, spray paint only at the center of them. It will give them a weirdly sinister look. Let them dry.
- Wrap the foam wreath with black yarn. Use pins and hot glue to keep the yarn attached.
- Cut the stems to your preferred length. Layer them starting with the greenery on the back and then placing the flowers next. Attach the bigger flowers first and then the smaller ones on top of them. Use pins and glue to secure the greenery and flowers.
- Then, attach two or three white flowers and secure with pins or glue.
- Spray paint a black plastic raven with silver paint. Let it dry.
Attach them with floral wire to make the wreath look more festive and Halloween-ish.
- Make a loop with a piece of black or silver silk ribbon and use it to hang the wreath.
Outdoor Halloween Decorations
The style of outdoor Halloween decorations has changed a lot over the years. However, Halloween silhouettes are always a favorite, and you can buy free patterns to cut a skeleton, witch, or ghost that will stand out in your yard. If you like seasonal decorations more, Better Homes and Garden is here to help you with various types of Halloween pumpkin decorations.

Halloween Yard Decorations with Wreaths
A bone wreath gracing the neck of the skeleton in your yard and a raven wreath hanging on the garden gate will be a stroke of genius. However, you can make the Halloween decorations more attractive and apparently scary with this spider web wreath from Go Make Me (or follow the video tutorial above). Hang the wreath from a low-hanging branch of one of your yard trees and be delightfully scared at night!
