Halloween Skeleton Wreath


One “21 Roll Deco mesh
3” or 4” Styro ball
Black acrylic paint Paint brush
2” Ribbon (make a bow)
1 Pipe cleaner
Two 8” pieces of contrasting 21” wide deco mesh (for arms and legs)

Starting with the top ring on the work wreath, open up a pair of pine boughs. Grab a hank of the Deco Mesh, scrunch it together and place it in between the two pine pieces. Then, twist-tie the deco mesh into the wreath using the pine pieces to secure. Measure out 6-8 inches of deco mesh, scrunch, and secure in between the next two pieces of pine.
Continue placing bunches of Deco Mesh into the pine boughs all the way around the top ring of the wreath.
When you are done with the top ring, continue on to the bottom ring and add deco mesh the same way.
