DIY Halloween Wreath (Easy)

This is a quick and easy project if you are still looking for last-minute Halloween decorations. I made this using a 12 in. foam wreath, straight pins, black polyester ribbon, and Dollar Tree Halloween decorations.

I started off by wrapping the ribbon around the wreath. I secured the ribbon with the straight pins (I used this method because I plan on using the wreath at a later date).

I used the straight pins again to secure the Halloween decorations to the wreath.

Finally, I tied black ribbon around the top part of the wreath so that I could hang it from my door.

DIY Halloween Mat

I love doing Halloween crafts, so I bought this $1 mat to decorate for my front door. This project is inexpensive and very easy to complete.

I painted the mat using sponge brushes, acrylic paint, and stencils.

After I was done painting the letters and shapes, I let the mat sit overnight to make sure the paint was completely dry.

Charger Plate and Metal Tray Crafts

These craft projects are easy ways to decorate your home.

For the first project, I used a cheap charger plate I bought at a craft store for $1, gold spray paint, a Sharpie paint pen, and a stencil.

I painted the plate with the gold spray paint. Once the paint was dry, I drew designs on the plate using the paint pen and stencil.

For the next project, I used metal serving trays from Dollar Tree to make useful wall decorations.

I used Krylon Paint + Primer in different colors to paint the trays. Then, I added chalkboard paint to one of the trays.

I made magnets for the other trays using adhesive magnet buttons and mosaic tiles.
