DIY Nightmare Before Christmas Wreath @Crafty_ZooAll you will need is:

*most of the supplies you can get at your favorite craft store. I got my garland at the local Dollar Store*

Stept by Step Tutorial Nightmare Before Christmas Wreath
Big boy helper! Love our little hands at the Zoo!

Step one

Paint the wooden circles white and let dry. Pick out your favorite Jack Skeleton facial expressions and draw them on the circles once the white paint is dry. For those whose free hand skills are not up to par, you can print off stencils and use them. The paint over with black paint and let dry.

Step two

Lace the garland trough the wire wreath. I secured mine with twine but that is optional.

Step three

Place the finished Jack faces where you like on the wreath. You can glue them down if you like, however I hot glued some twine to the back so I could just tie them to the wire wreath.

Once the faces are secured your wreath is ready to hang.

Optional DIY Spider Web

My four year old decided that we needed a spider web in the center. I had extra hot glue so I made a web out of hot glue (use hot glue and parchment paper to do that. Simply glue the web to the parchment, once it is dry you can carefully remove the web.

We painted it first then removed it once it was dry. I just hot glued the web to the back of the wreath…honestly it would have been just as easy to buy fake webbing from the dollar store, but I didn’t want to make another trip into town or spend any more money)

I had a few things in our Halloween decoration supplies that I could have added as well. Like the purple twigs that I tied to the top. You can add whatever Halloween decor you choose and make it as original as you like.

The kids loved helping with this. I let them choose the facial expressions, wrap the wreath in garland, and let them pick where to hang it. (Although my son was convinced it would look best in his room. Lol.)




Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure. I look forward to continuing to share my life through word and pictures with you and love hearing your feedback! Thank you for taking the time to read and allowing me to share! I look forward to reading your comments!
