How about another dollar store decoration for Halloween this year? Dollar store skulls seem to be my decoration of choice this Halloween and this easy dollar store skull wreath is no exception. It is REALLY easy and cost me $17 to make all in except for the hot glue with the glue gun and a little black spray paint which I already had.

I began with a plain MDF wreath frame. I found mine at Michael’s, but they are sometimes out of them. In that case you can find them on Amazon. I used an 18 inch frame.I gave my wreath form a quick spray with black spray paint . This doesn’t have to be a fine finish, it will really be covered with the skulls and the tulle. Now is the very easy part, just begin gluing the skulls to the frame. I made sure that I glued the flat part on the bottom of the skulls so they would adhere well.Just keep adding skulls. You will want to try them out before you begin so you have an idea of how close together you will want to glue them. I spaced mine about an inch apart. The cool thing was this would have my wreath include 13 skulls! 13 is a great number for Halloween, right? I got all of my skulls glued on and left a space for me to tie the tulle to hang the wreath. You could space your skulls closer together if you want and add additional skulls so you have no gap, or you could put a Halloween bow in that spot. This is just how I chose to make mine. I took my decorative tulle and tied a tight knot in it and glued it to the frame where the gap for my hanger is. Next I took the tulle and loosely wove it in and out, front and back of the skulls. With an odd number of skulls, when I got all the way around, I was able to continue weaving it around, so each skull then had the tulle both in front and in back of it. Above you can see how the tulle is woven around the skulls, both back and front. I wrapped the rest of the tulle around the wreath frame in the gap, tied a loop to hang it from, and I was done!
This dollar store skull wreath was an easy Halloween project that will leave you with a fun way to greet guests or trick or treaters who arrive at your home!
