How to make

Step 1
Take the black twig wreath base and lay on a flat surface, spread out the elements as desired and decide which section is going to be the top of your wreath.
Step 2

Take one of the bat garlands and position the loop on the back of the wreath, at the top (this is what will be used to hang the wreath on your door).

 

Working clockwise, start wrapping the remainder of the garland around the wreath positioning it in between and around the items already attached to the wreath base. Roughly speaking, one garland should reach round half the wreath.

 

Top Tip: If needed secure the end of the garland with a small amount of glue from a hot melt glue gun

Step 3
Repeat step two with the remaining garland, this time working counterclockwise.
Step 4
Secure the loops at the top of the wreath using a small amount of glue from a hot melt glue gun.
Step 5

Add sprigs of fern to the wreath base; use wire cutters to remove small stems from the black fern pick, then secure these in place with a hot melt glue gun.

 

Top Tip: position all the fern stems in place before securing with the hot melt glue gun

Step 6
Once all the fern sprigs are secure and the glue has set, position the wired elements on the wreath (i.e. bats and twig elements) as desired.
Step 7

Your wreath is complete and ready to hang; hang in pride of place on your front door, or why not make it the focal point of your indoor decoration?!

 

Top Tip: to create an even spookier wreath, why not wrap and weave faux cobwebs inbetween the wreath elements
