I was given a small Dollar General gift card so that I could chose some Halloween and craft items to create my own DIY Halloween project. I went shopping and was amazed at how many choices I had. They have everything you need for Halloween at Dollar General. There was tons of Halloween decor, fall decor, and craft supplies. I could hardly decide on just one project but I was inspired to go with a DIY Halloween wreath.

DIY Coat Hanger Halloween Wreath Tutorial
This DIY Halloween wreath could be customized in so many ways! I went with an orange and gold pumpkin theme and added a bit of spooky with a spider web backing and a spider. The materials for the wreath are items you probably already have around the house or inexpensive decor items I got at the Dollar General.
DIY Halloween Wreath Supplies:
- wire hanger
- gold glitter craft tape
- wide decorative ribbon with wire
- glitter foam pumpkins
- glue gun and glue sticks
- fake spider web
- fake spider
How To Make A Halloween Wreath With A Coat Hanger Base:
First, untwisted the top of the hanger and straighten the whole length except for the hook.
Measure and cut 40 inches of glitter craft tape and place the straightened hanger in the middle of the sticky side so that it covers the length of the hanger.
Measure and cut a second 40 inches of glitter craft tape and slowly cover the metal hanger while making the two sticky sides meet.
Now you can bend the wire into a circle by hand or by wrapping around a large pot. Use the pliers to twist the wire back together at the close of the circle.
Create a big fluffy bow for the top of the wreath. You can do this by taking the wide decorative ribbon and folding it into 4 waves and add hot glue at the bottom of each. Hot glue this half of the bow to the top side of the tape right below the hanger hook. Now create the other half of the bow in the same manner with 4 waves hot glued together and hot glued to the tape on the other side of the hook.
Now wrap the wide decorative ribbon around the center of the bow to cover the wires and keep loosely wrapping it in a circular motion till you get back to the top.
Add the glitter foam pumpkins to the wreath by hot gluing them to the ribbon every time the ribbon crosses the tape. (The pumpkins I got were in the fall decor section on sticks. We pulled out the sticks and pulled the ribbon bows off the sticks. We hot glued the ribbon bows onto the pumpkins just below the stems.)
Stretch the spider web out behind the wreath to create a spooky element and hang a spider in the middle of the wreath.
You just finished making your own inexpensive DIY Halloween Wreath! Great job. Now you can use the hook to hang it on your door knocker.
