While a handful of Halloween decorations have popped up in stores, there isn’t nearly what I had hoped for. I haven’t seen a single fake pumpkin anywhere and so much of my Halloween crafting involves those. I’ll be better prepared next year! I’ve managed to cobble together a few random supplies, though, and have been creating my own Halloween. With just a few supplies and half an hour, I made this fun and spooky black rose Halloween wreath. It’s hanging next to our front door and I’ve been asked multiple times where I bought it.

(These are all similar but not exactly what I used–my supplies all came from random New Zealand shops.)
Wrap the wreath in the black yarn. If you’ve seen any of my other yarn-wrapped wreaths, you know how much I love using a chunky yarn. I’ll use smaller yarns at times, but for a wreath like this you just can’t beat how fast it is to wrap with the chunky yarn.
Prep the black roses. The only black roses I could find came on a vine and I felt like I was Morticia Addams as I was snipping off the flowers. I had way more fun with it than I should have.
Using your hot glue gun, glue the back of each skull’s head. Place the skull in the center of each flower.
Glue the flower onto the wreath. I chose to make six flowers (mostly because that was how many came on my garland!) and I placed them along the bottom of my wreath. You are obviously able to make as many flowers as you want!
I felt like my wreath needed just a bit more, so I wrapped some cream colored stripes around the top. I just thought the cream yarn helped to balance it out a bit.
Halloween decorations are definitely on the spookier side here–not the cute stuff I usually have around. The girls don’t mind this black rose Halloween wreath, though–they’ve asked for the extra skulls for their own projects.
