Spooky Skull Wreath {Dollar Store Decorations}





I meant to put out a fall wreath, I really did... But the Halloween decorations are out and I couldn't resist!

I got everything for this wreath at the Dollar Store. I started with two bunches of black roses and spiders, spooky cloth, and one light-up glitter skull. Before I was finished, I went back for two more skulls, some ribbon, and a sign. If you're counting, that is $8 for this fun and spooky wreath.


I wrapped the wreath in the spooky cloth.



I separated all the flowers and spiders, cut into long enough pieces to attach them to the wreath. I used some wire to attach the skulls - they were a little top-heavy and I needed to turn them on and off, so I also is a little duct tape.





Welcome to the nighttime pictures - I apologize for the terrible quality...





I love these skulls! They eyes flash a bunch of colors and they look great!





I tried to place them on our front door, but found out the skulls were too big to fit between the doors.



Plan B: put them on another door with a pre-existing hook! Oh, and add that sign!
