DIY Halloween Candy Wreath – Great For Trick or Treaters!

This Halloween candy wreath craft is pretty easy, it involves a foam wreath, clothespins, and a few decorative touches, plus a few things you may already have at home. Check out my Halloween wreath tutorial and make one of your own!

Materials Needed:

spray painting black clothes pins

Step 1: Spray paint the clothespins

Start by spray painting the wooden clothespins black. Arrange each one on a piece of newspaper outside and thoroughly spray all sides with your black spray paint. Allow them to dry for 15-20 minutes, turn each clothespin over, and spray the remainder of each one until they are completely black.

Step 2: Wrap your wreath with tulle

Glue the end of your¬†orange tulle roll to what will be the back of the wreath and wrap it around and around and around, overlapping multiple times to cover¬†the green (or white) color of the floral foam wreath ring. I personally love how the tulle looks, but if you’re using ribbon, you’ll do the same thing. Once you get around the entire wreath, cut the tulle/ribbon and hot glue¬†the end in the exact same spot that you started on the back of the wreath.

Step 3: Attach the ribbon wreath hanger and the paper sign

Measure out a piece of ribbon to your desired length and glue each side to the back of the wreath, preferably at the same glue site as the tulle.

Grab your decorative paper and trace the outside of the wreath onto it to make a 12-inch circle, cut it out. Cut a smaller circle around the “trick or treat” sign, and¬†hot glue¬†it to the middle of the 12-inch decorative paper circle. Run a line of glue¬†around¬†the outer edge of the back of the wreath and press your paper circle FACE DOWN so that the sign will show on the front. Trim any excess paper off around the outside edges.

Step 4: Glue on the clothespins

Take your black clothespins and arrange them around the wreath as desired, all open mouths of the pins should be facing outwards, and the pinched side will be on the inside of the wreath. To make sure all pins are evenly spaced, I suggest starting in the lower middle of the wreath, around 6 o’clock, and going up from there. To glue, put on a nice generous dot of hot glue for each clothespin, and make sure that the open sides face OUT! Allow about 20 minutes for the glue to dry and the pins to set.
