This year for Halloween my obsession has been bats! I wanted a wreath that went well with the rest of my Halloween decorations. So, I went searching for a cute bat wreath that would fit perfectly with my style and colors.
I always gravitate towards black and white décor, but I couldn’t find a wreath with those colors and in my taste.
For my inspiration of course I looked on Pinterest and found a lot of ideas that I really liked.
I went to Joanns and found this branch wreath ($12.99) along with the beautiful beaded spider ($5.99) and black crow($2.50).
The dimensional bats I found at Target for ($3.00) and white spray paint I purchased at Walmart ($3.00).
First I sprayed the wreath with a coat of white paint very sparingly. I didn’t want it to be completely covered in paint and be opaque I wanted it to have a variety of colors.
After spraying it still had some of the original branch color peeking through with some white/grey areas giving it a cobweb look.
The package of 18 bats came with 3 different sizes: small, medium and large bats.
I laid the bats down on the wreath before gluing them down to see the placement of each bat and made sure the larger bats were placed evenly.
When I started to glue the bats I found that the easiest way to glue them was to put the glue directly on the branch.
For the beaded spider I turned the wreath over and hooked the string to one of the branches and hot glued it down for a more secure placement.
I hung the wreath with a clear Command hook that I purchased at Target.
I just LOVE how it came out and how it makes my blue door pop!
My pumpkins at the bottom are also a super quick and simple diy.
I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of this easy diy Halloween wreath. It goes well with the rest of my decorations and it is definitely what I envisioned!
