Halloween is on its way! I don’t know about you, but I am getting ready to make some new spooky decor and this Green Man Woodland Wreath is sure to frighten your neighbors! For more creepy decor see my Halloween page. 

Halloween Wreath, Make this simple but scary tree man to scare your neighbors this Halloween! Green Man,Tree Man, Woodland Tree Spirit, Forest Man, tree creature,

Each season before I start shopping, I like to look around and see what’s popular. I try to get a feel for what’s trending, what I should buy or what I can make. I love looking at Grandin Road’s website for Halloween decor. I think they have a classy way of showing you how to display your Halloween decor, haunting your house or just a haunting cocktail party.

Searching around their site this year I found a tree man wreath. (Sadly it is sold out)! This wreath just hit me, we go to Asheville North Carolina a lot and we love the Green Man Brewery.  They have tons of green man masks hanging all around inside the brewery. I decided I needed to make one for myself and I may just keep it up year-round.

The Grandin Road version, to me, looks like the character Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. I wanted to model mine more like the traditional Celtic Green Man masks.

This is a really easy wreath to put together. All I did was find a tree sculpture mask on Amazon, painted in the eyes and mounted him on a grapevine wreath. Then cover the mask with natural green moss and surrounded it with floral fern stems. Let me show you how it’s done!

Green Man Woodland Wreath

Supplies:

Instructions:

The mask I chose was one of the resin tree faces you can buy to nail to a tree outside. My mask did not have any eyes painted on it. I decided he’d be way more creepy with the eyes staring at you. This is Halloween after all!

Paint a tree man mask

Fill in the eyes with white acrylic paint.

 

all eyes to a tree man mask

Paint a black circle in the center of the whites of the eyes.

Paint a green circle in the center of the black circle.

Tree man mask with painted eyes

Paint a black circle in the center of the green circle, leaving the edges green. Paint to white dots randomly in the center of each eye.

I wanted my mask to look a little bit more like tree bark. Using a dry brush method, lightly paint on gray acrylic paint to the bumps and edges that stand out on the mask.

Adding paint to a tree man mask

Dry Brush Method: Added small amount paint to a dry stiff paintbrush. Wipe off excess paint on a paper towel. Lightly brush on paint.

How to Mount a mask on a wreath:

how to mount things to a wreath

Cut two strips of the chicken wire ribbon the same width of the wreath.

Add floral wire to a grapevine wreath to stabilize it

Use floral wire to fasten the chicken wire to the back of the wreath. Position the mask and use floral wire to attach the mask.

add tree mask to center of wreath

Thread the floral wire through the holes on either side and top and bottom of the mask and tie them tightly to the chicken wire ribbon.

glue moss to a wreath and tree man mask

Add small amounts of hot glue to small pieces of moss. Glue the moss to the corners of the eyes, mouth, and edges of the mask. Add moss to the wreath between the vines and glued to the outer edges.

Add the wood sticks behind the mask by weaving them between the chicken wire. Add fern picks and random long leaves around the head. Add moss on either side of the mask to hide the chicken wire.

Fill in any areas that show with extra leaves and moss. Once you have everything where you want it, add hot glue to secure them. I find hanging my wreath when adding embellishments makes it easier to see the finished product.

I have to say the eyes are probably the spookiest thing about this wreath. They seem to follow you wherever you go!
