October is almost over! I decided to put together one more Halloween decor project to celebrate the upcoming holiday. Learn to make this Elegant Ravens Nest Halloween Wreath Tutorial to glam up this holiday!
I was actually digging through some of my floral remnants. Believe me, I have a lot of them hanging around the workshop, and I came across one of my wispy wreaths I had taken apart. I used pliers to pull apart some of the twigs for another project and discarded the leftover wreath in my to-do pile. When I picked it up and it struck me that it looked sort of like a moon or a hoop wreath
Well, that got me going on a hunt for more items. I pulled out my fabulous rooster feather boa that I use for Halloween costumes or sometimes hanging around the background of my Halloween vignettes. The boa’s feathers reminded me of crows or ravens feathers. So I pulled out my faux crows and went to work!
This wreath takes only a few minutes to put together. So if your up for trying a unique wreath for Halloween that’s easy to make, this is the one! Here’s how I made it!
Ravens Nest Halloween Wreath
- Large Wispy Twig Wreath (Michaels)
- Black Feather Boa
- Gray Spanish Moss
- 1 Bunch of Halloween Sparkly Black Floral Stems
- 3 Faux Crows: 1 large, 2 small
- Floral Wire
- Hot Glue & Gun
Use pliers to remove 2 -3 sections of the wispy wreath. This will leave a wire hoop center on one-half side of the wreath.
Use floral wire to secure the hanging part of the twigs to the hoop. Add your feather boa to the center using floral wire. You can cut it off to fit the center or tuck it up to make it fuller. As you can see I like to hang my wreaths when I work on them to give me a better perspective.
Ball up a small amount of moss in the shape of a nest. Hot glue the nest down to the center of the boa.
Using pliers cut apart the Halloween stem bunch and insert them around the nest. Once you have them arranged, glue them down so they are secure.
Add the crows. You may need to use floral wire around their legs to help secure them to the branches. The crow in the nest, I just removed is feet, added wire and glued him in!
And that’s it! Super easy and a fun way bring some spooky elegance to your home this Halloween!
This wreath would look great in my Gold & Black Halloween Entryway! Did ya see it?
