Spooky (and Easy) Woven Halloween Moon Wreath
Turn inexpensive craft-store materials into a stylishly spooky Halloween wreath you can display either indoors or out.
A full moon always gets all the spooky Halloween attention. Give that full moon a run for it’s money with this easy DIY yarn-wrapped crescent moon wreath.
In almost no time, and with the help of yarn and embroidery hoops, your front door or interior wall will be Halloween ready. This project can be made larger with items like hula hoops or even smaller with metal macrame rings.
Check out this episode of DIY This With Jennifer Perkins to watch how this project comes together.
- large embroidery hoop
- small embroidery hoop
- hot glue and hot glue gun
- stiffened craft felt
- black yarn
Take apart the embroidery hoops. With the larger hoop, use the one that has the hardware. For the smaller hoop, use the smooth hoop without the hardware. Set aside extra parts for another project.
Cover both hoops entirely with yarn. Join the hoops together at one side so the space between the two hoops begins to look like a crescent moon. Attach with more yarn or hot glue.
Once you have joined the two yarn covered hoops, begin wrapping both hoops in a random pattern with more yarn.
There is no real rhyme, reason or pattern to the design. Add as many or as few wraps as you want.
Embellishments like felt stars and paper bats can be added to the wreath.
Hang on a wall or door. Consider making a series with all the moon phases to hang all year long.
