Halloween Wreath

It's all started with one of my discontinued cabinetry catalog. The pages were nice and thick and I've decided to use them for something crafty vs. giving up for recycling.
Well, step 1

Paint each page in two colors: one side black and one side orange.

Step 2
Roll paper cones and secure each roll with hot glue. Trim edges to make them look nice and even.

Step 3
Arrange all your cones in a nice circle and glue them to a base of your choice.

You can see mine - it is a cardboard where I've cut a center

Step 4 (optional)
Embellish each cone. In my case I am using a decorative border from this napkin.
Cut the border and glue it to each cone

Step 5
Paper plate flowers tutorial you can find here. Add your flowers to the wreath. In my case I've used black plate and painted it orange on the back.

Step 6 (Optional)
I added a Witch on a Broom (my Dollar Store Find) and a cute Free Printable "Boo" Sign

Step 7
I've used a fishing wire to hang my wreath. The final width is 36" and it makes a very nice statement. Now that my front door is done, I can finally see the finishing line for this Halloween Fun Marathon:)

Have a great day!

  1. Very Pretty, I love your wreath and the flowers add a nice touch. Great idea, well done. I have a bunch of discontinued wall paper books, I wonder how how that would work for the cones? Have you ever tried that? I may test that out. I have been looking for some things to use them for.They are great to use for many things and they are usually free.
