How to Make a Sugar Skull Wreath

 Make this super easy sugar skull wreath using dollar store faux flowers and a pool noodle.

Halloween is just around the corner and although we had our Day of the Dead party back in September now is the perfect time to display this wreath.  Plus it's colorful and fresh and not too scary.

I actually borrowed this idea from Rebecca at The Crafted Sparrow who shared a beautiful version with felt flowers here.  I swapped out the felt flowers for faux silk flowers and used fabric in place of ribbon.  I'll show you how down below.

Supplies:
  • 12" wire wreath form
  • foam pool noodle
  • black & white stripe fabric strips or ribbon
  • sugar skull wood cut out (Michaels)
  • vibrant colored faux flowers (dollar store)
  • hot glue gun

Step 1: Using an old pool noodle cut lengthwise I attached it to a wire wreath form using the fabric strips.  Fold over the raw edge of the fabric for a finished look and hot glue the end in place.

Step 2: Pull the flowers off the stems and hot glue in position on the wreath.  Super easy and fast!
