Finishing a Premade Halloween Wreath

Premade wreaths tend to be a little… sad. We picked up this one for Halloween with black flowers and small skulls. Very neat when laying on the counter. Sadly wilted and misshapen when hung on the door. The heat of the sun between the glass storm door and the painted metal door softened the glue, making it no longer look round and full.

Solution: Two bunches of silver glitter edged black roses. Fake flower bunches are great for wreaths as they already include a variety of shapes and sizes, and have stems thin enough to cut through with ordinary wire cutters.

Cut apart the flower bunches.

Depending on the core of the wreath, you can either hot glue in the pieces, or wrap the wire stems around the core to hold them in place. Use all the pieces – the fuller the wreath is, the better it will look.

And voila! With the stems spaced out anywhere there was the slightest hint of a hole, you’d never guess the flowers weren’t all part of this wreath to begin with.
