Did you see our new Tutu Halloween Wreath on Instagram? We showed a sneak peek at our creation. Well; the good news is that it is done! And today we are sharing our wreath tutorial with you! Yeah!
I first started planning this craft in September! Crazy right? Way too early for Halloween am I right? But for the life of a crafter or blogger, we always have to be preparing for the holidays months in advance.
Actually, September is still a little slow getting started with Halloween decor. Many bloggers start creating Halloween crafts in August! That’s just the life of having to do holiday projects 3 months early so they will be ready for our amazing readers like yourself.
But don’t worry, just because this was created early, you still have plenty of time! I’m going to show this easy to make Halloween Wreath tutorial that can be completed in about 30 minutes!
So as long as Halloween hasn’t ended, you still have time to complete this easy to make Halloween Wreath.
If you remember our Christmas Wreath tutorial or our DIY Turkey Tulle Wreath Tutorial; today’s Halloween Tutu Wreath will look a little similar since you will be using the same method. It is so easy. You can easily get this Tutu Halloween Wreath done in half an hour or two if you tie a little slower. Plus you don’t need to be professionally craft savvy. Even beginners can create this one!
Tutu Halloween Wreath Tutorial
Gather all your materials to make the process going quickly. You will need
- 30-50 yards each of Purple, Black, Orange, Lime tulle rolls.
- Glitter Halloween colors ornament balls (found mine at Michaels)
- a 12″ foam wreath
- hot glue
- A spooky or Witch sign of your liking (I found mine from Hobby Lobby)
- Rotary cutter
- Cutting mat
To begin, start by cutting your tulle into 15″ strips. I did it color by color. Because I didn’t want to end up with a lot of cut tulle strips leftover like I did with the Christmas Wreath. I did 5 of each color, tied them onto the wreath and then cut more. By the end, I ended up actually using
- 25 strips Orange tulle
- 25 strips Purple tulle
- 25 stripes Lime tulle
- 75 stripes Black tulle.
Take a strip of tulle and wrap around the wreath so both ends are even on either side and do a typical Right over left, left over the right knot. Proceed around the entire wreath.
I did black after each color and each section is 5 strips. But you can do it any order you prefer. Or if you don’t want a color included, just omit it all together. My design pattern follows 5 orange, 5 black, 5 purple, 5 black, 5 lime, 5 black, then 5 orange again. Continue this pattern until you get all the way around the wreath.
Pick a side you want to be the top. Use the black tulle to create a hanging hook.
Pick the two black sections you want at the top and you will be squeezing one more knot of tulle into each color block. Instead of using a pre-cut strip of tulle, use the tulle still on the spool. Tie the first knot like normal in the first black section leaving a tail long enough to blend with the rest of the tulle in the color block.
Measure how long you want the hook and then tie another strip around the 2nd black color block that is at the top of the wreath. Measure out enough tail to match the rest of the tulle around it and then trim off from the spool. The result is a seamless hook for hanging.
If you end up thinking the hook is too long. That is OK. You can simply untie one end of the hook and shorten it. Re-tie and trim off the excess to match the rest of the tulle on the wreath again.
Now if you want, you can just leave the wreath as it is. It is still fun and colorful and festive. But I like accessories. And crafting is no exception; so I decked mine out. Get your glue gun ready!
Lay out your Tutu Halloween wreath with the accessories you want to add. Before you glue anything down, play around with different layouts. See how everything looks. At first, I thought it would be fun to use some glittery flowers on the wreath. So I laid them out.
I ended up not liking them and changing them out for more Halloween colored ornament balls. That is why it is very important you lay everything out before you begin gluing. To ensure you like how the final result will look.
Once you have everything laid out and you like it, now you can begin gluing. Take one piece at a time so as not to mess up exactly where you had laid all the other accessories. Put some hot glue on the bottom and replace on the wreath and allow to cool.
Once you have glued all the pieces in place let your tutu wreath sit for about 30 minutes while it dries and cools. Then it should be golden to hang!
