I am back with another great craft tutorial using my Cricut Explore. Are you ready to hang this glittered Christmas wreath on your front door? I thought so. Grab the supplies below and glitter up your front door this holiday season. This post is part of a competition hosted by Cricut however all projects and opinions are my own. You can also find more glitter crafts using the Cricut Explore at the bottom of this post.
What happens when a box of random craft supplies shows up at your door? The Krylon Mystery Box Challenge of course! Krylon is sponsoring this post and provided a big box of the most random things for me to make something with. My metallic let it snow sign is the result and I must admit that I love it!
It is time once again for the Krylon Mystery Box challenge. This time I made a glow in the dark Halloween wreath that is cute and spooky….at the same time! I was sent a box of mystery ingredients from Krylon as they are sponsoring this post. However you can find these same items at a craft store near you to recreate this wreath for your home. So lets get started.
I was looking to add a touch of fall to my door. This floral monogram fall wreath was the perfect solution. You can make this easily with supplies from Dollar General. Trust me this is a simple fall wreath that anyone can make. However it makes a BIG statement on your front door which I personally love.
A fun carrot spring wreath for your home decor at Easter or throughout the spring season. Make this wreath in just minutes by following the directions below. This one is super easy and will make a unique statement on your front door. The cones for our crafting were provided by FloraCraft as part of our Crafty Hangouts series.
- Cut a StyroFoam ball in half and add to the top of the cone with hot glue.
- Cut a piece of felt into a funky or fun shape and stick into the top. Secure with a little hot glue.
- Start wrapping at the very top with orange yarn. The top will need to be secured in a few places with hot glue so it does not slide off. After that you can wrap the rest rapidly without securing.
- At the bottom use hot glue and quite a bit of yarn to create a carrot “tip”.
- Wrap a frame in burlap or strips of any fabric for a wreath form.
- Tie the carrot on with jute twine and secure with a little hot glue as well to hold in place.
- Tie on a fun spring saying to your wreath as well.
- Hang on your door.
Enjoy this carrot spring wreath all season long. Be sure to see all of the other cone crafts at Crafty Hangouts. What would you make with a cone for spring?
- Cover a large cone with wood grain contact paper. I picked up mine at the dollar store. Trim any excess with a pair of scissors from the side as well as the top.
- Add reindeer moss to the top of your cone with hot glue.
- Add in these great burlap flowers from Consumer Crafts randomly in the top. Secure with hot glue.
- Form an 18 inch piece of floral wire into a handle like shape and turn it in (90 degree angle) about 2 inches from both ends. Push those ends directly into the cone at the top through the contact paper. Push into the cone about 1 inch down from the top on both sides.
- Add a ribbon to the top and you are ready to hang this one on your door.
Trick or Treat Halloween Wreath Supplies:
- 12 inch Wreath Form
- Acrylic Craft Paint (white, black, poppy orange, and sun yellow)
- Mini Canvas Triangles
- Burlap Flower
- Jumbo Craft Sticks
- Halloween Embellishments
Paint the canvas triangles with paint to resemble candy corn. I free handed the paint onto my pieces.
Hot glue craft sticks together into a “sign” shape large enough for any scrapbook embellishments that you will use.
Cut the craft sticks off with a large pair of scissors into a “sign” shape.
Use a dry brush and very little black paint to give your “sign” a distressed appearance. Allow to dry then add on scrapbook embellishments. Place the sign and burlap flower onto your Halloween craft wreath with hot glue. Add buttons to the center of your flower.
Add your candy corn triangles around the edges of the wreath, again with hot glue.
Add this trick or treat Halloween wreath to your front door. It will great the trick or treaters in just two short weeks. This is the perfect wreath for any lover of candy corn. I want to know y’all….do you love candy corn or hate it? Give me the details!
Now it is time to break out that duct tape. We are going to start by making a duct tape flower. You will need a small square of duct tape plus one long strip.
Fold your long strip over about 2/3 of the way as shown below. Also as shown below, it does not have to be perfect.
Gather your long strip onto your square as shown below. Continue wrapping around and around until you run out of strip. The longer the strip, the closer to the outside of the square you can start, and the larger your flower will be.
You will end up with a gathered flower something like this.
The back does not look as pretty but we are not worried about that! Note that if any of your “square” peeks out around the edge of your flower, just fold under to hide it.
Now attach those flowers to your wreath with hot glue.
I also added a couple of buttons to the center of my flower. They added just the right amount of bling.
Now we need to make that duct tape “Welcome” banner. You will need string (I used baker’s twine), duct tape, and foam letters.
Start with a square of duct tape and fold it into a point as shown.
Then fold the sides of your square in to make a mini pennant flag.
Add your foam letters to each pennant flag.
Tie the baker’s twine onto your wreath. Add the flags by folding the duct tape over the baker’s twine and securing the flap with hot glue.
It is really that simple! Add a cheerful touch to your front door with this duct tap flowers wreath.
Or just add to a fun frame wall if your little girl loves ladybugs!
The fishing pole is a toy from the Dollar Tree that I thought was the perfect size for a wreath.
I cut the fish from various pieces of scrapbook paper that I had on hand. I just folded the paper in half and cut a fish like shape.
I used hot glue to secure all of the items to the front. Including the one fish that is on the hook.
