Spooky Sparkly Owl Wreath
Spooky Sparkly Owl Wreath
Every new holiday calls for a little front door flair! This Halloween I've crafted my spooky sparkly owl wreath to welcome ghouls and ghosts of every kind.
It's easy to find Halloween inspiration everywhere with the change of colors, early nightfall and lots and lots of spiders and their webs covering walkways and bushes in our yard.
I also love a trip to my dollar store to find supplies that inspire. A recent visit to the shop did not let me down. I browsed the aisles with a spooky bird wreath in mind and landed on this spooky sparkly owl wreath.
What makes this wreath especially fun is the price! For just $12 I have an all season wreath that's unique and a delight (if a little spooky!) to come home to as well as well guests and trick-or-treaters at the end of October.
I loved creating what I think are high-impact bow and feather clusters with a dollar store boa and 6" wide decorative mesh that I can always find in seasonal colors.
The boa came with gold accents that I easily removed by hand to give the wreath a more cohesive color scheme. I wanted a dark black wreath with just one accent color and opted for these orange sparkle branches to give the feeling of an owl perched upon her branch.
And the best part about featuring owls instead of the more expected ravens is that their eyes light up! When lit the owls match the orange branches perfectly.
Here's What You'll Need for your Spooky Sparkly Owl Wreath from the Dollar Store
- Wreath base
- 2 spools black decorating mesh
- 2 sparkly owls
- 4 sparkly branches - 2 black and 2 orange that you can snip for easy placement
- 1 black feather boa
- 2 clusters black roses with stems, leaves and spiders! (use the spiders for a Halloween tablescape or other festive decorating)
- Glue gun and glue sticks
Make Your Own Spooky Sparkly Owl Wreath
Start by wrapping your wreath base with one roll of black decorative mesh. This will give you good coverage.
Next, place your black and orange sparkle branches on each side of the wreath. You can easily thread the stems into the mesh and wreath frame. Add a little hot glue to secure on front and back.
Now, it's time to make your bow clusters for the top and bottom of your wreath. Start by making 3 figure eights and securing with a pipe cleaner or twist tie in the middle of the bow. You'll end up with a bow with 6 loops.
Glue your bow clusters to your wreath with hot glue.
Now, attach your owls to the branches making sure that you can easily access the on/off switch of each owl.
Fill in each owl's 'nest' with a length of feather and some black roses.
Thread a small black ribbon to the top of your wreath to hang on your front door, over your mantle or in front of a large scale mirror in your home. If hanging indoors, use a removable Command hook for easy decorating.
I hope you try this easy Halloween wreath to enjoy all season. Be sure to add your own personal touches to make it your own.
Add more animals or another type of sparkly flair. Either way, enjoy!
