Trick-or-Treat Halloween Wreath



The Trick-or-Treat Halloween Wreath from Heather Valentine is the perfect way to greet all the little ghouls and goblins who come knocking at your door on Halloween! Learn how to make a wreath that is spooky, or just fall festive! This Halloween wreath craft project will get you in the holiday spirit. Create a Trick-or-Treat Halloween Wreath for your door or the wall. Guests of all ages will love the way this easy Halloween craft idea brings some stylish spookiness to your door.

Trick-or-Treat Halloween Wreath


  • Wreath form (I picked up a 14-inch straw wreath from my local craft store.)
  • 1/2 yard muslin
  • Colored T-shirts (I used cream, orange, and black.)
  • Straight pins
  • Scraps of fabric
  • Sewing machine (or needle and thread)
  • Sequins/buttons (optional)
  • A few plastic spiders (I used a few rings from last year.)
  • Bits from an old worn-out wig (again, from last year)
  • Spray glitter

Trick-or-Treat Halloween Wreath


  1. To cover the wreath form, I ripped the muslin into 1 1/4-inch to 1 1/2-inch strips. Just clip the fabric at the selvage and rip from side to side. This will create a frayed effect and help create the “mummy” look. (No ironing is needed!)
  2. Using straight pins, pin the end of the muslin on the back of the wreath. (I even left the plastic on mine. This way it will not break down.) Wrap the muslin around and around; pin in place. Repeat until the wreath is covered. (You could use hot glue, but I like the option of "reusing" the wreath!)

  3. Cut your T-shirts and scraps into strips 1 1/2 inches wide. (Note: I made one black strip 3 inches wide. It created the big flower.) If you would like to use printed woven fabric for this step, be sure to fold it in half, wrong sides together, and then stitch. This will give you the print on both sides.
  4. Using your sewing machine on a basic straight stitch, stitch down the center of each strip lengthwise. Be sure not to backstitch and leave long tails at each end. (*If you do not have a sewing machine, this step can be done with a needle and thread.)
  5. Pull one thread of long tail to create gathers in each strip.
  6. One strip at a time, pin to form at the stitch line. Wrap the strip around the center and continue to pin in the center. Don't worry, the fullness from the fabric will hide the pins. When the flower is the desired size, trim the strip and pin down behind the fabric.

  7. Alternating fabrics, continue to create flowers around the form. I applied flowers to the lower portion of the wreath.
  8. Once you have applied the desired amount of flowers, you can create a ”hanger” from the strips of ripped muslin. Just take one strip and create a loop at the top edge. Pin in place at the back of the wreath.

  9. Now, if you want to make your wreath a bit more spooky, you can add spider webs and a few friends. Cut a few thin sections of the wig from the underside. Tuck the strands between the flowers. Pin if needed. Wrap the strands under and over until you have desired web. (Note: You can also use store-bought web.)
  10. Since my web is black, the spiders did not pop. So I found a can of spray glitter in the art closet and added some sparkle! A few blasts and they were all set. Just simply tuck in place.

The flowers on this are so pretty, but the black yarn web makes it look like it isn't finished. Maybe it looks better in person.
