Halloween Wreath: Nevermore…

halloween wreath, Poe-inspired wreath

My theme for Halloween decorating this year is elegant, but creepy.  So, I took my famous recession wreath {named solely so it can be interchangeable throughout the seasons}, and made a Halloween wreath inspired by one of my favorite authors Edgar Allen Poe.


  • grapevine wreath form
  • creepy cloth ala Dollar Tree
  • crow
  • 20 gauge floral wire
  • hot glue
  • fabric flowers {some homemade, and some from Forever 21’s accessory section}
  • my grandmother’s broken pearls
  • white spray paint
  • stick stolen from Mother Nature
  • various gems and such
  • leftover berry picks from momnivore’s dilemma’s most popular project: the tabletop pearled Christmas tree

  1.  Spray paint small stick for crow to stand on. Set aside.
  2. Drape creepy cloth over wreath form, and cut away excess in the center.
  3. Arrange flowers and berry picks.  Use clips or dabs of hot glue to hold them in position.
  4. Center stick across the middle of the wreath. Use a short length of jewelry wire to set in place.
  5. Twist pearls around the stick.
  6. Use same wire to fixate the crow’s feet.  No, I’m not talking wrinkles here.
  7. Stand back, and admire.
