I knew I was going to make a Halloween wreath on this picture frame after the late summer picture frame wreath was so popular. It is so fun to start with a creative base like these inexpensive Ikea UNG Drill frames.

I know this looks a little stark with a white wreath on a white door, but I will be putting this white frame on my dark green front door, so keep reading! In this case I decided to hang the frame upside down, so the larger ornamentation is at the bottom. You will see why as we progress. For now all I did was drape a scrap of red fabric on one side of the frame. I cut about 1/3 off of a block of Sahara dry floral foam. I took the larger piece and wrapped a piece of chicken wire around it. This will keep the foam from cracking apart as you start to stick your florals into it.
Secure the chicken wire frame around the floral foam with chenille stems and leave them long to use to attach this to the picture frame. Use the chenille stems to wire your block of floral foam securely to the top of the frame.
This is what you will have at this point and you will begin adding your florals now.My first step was to add some long black florals that will define how long my arrangement will be.The next step was to add some of white leaves with black veins on them. I cut these off of the stem they came on so that I could add them in small clusters or individual leaves.
To give my red roses a spooky look, I gave them a light spraying of black spray paint.
I began to add the roses to my wreath. I filled out the rest of arrangement with the rest of my red roses. I used a couple of better quality silk roses and filled in with red silk roses from the Dollar Tree store.
I finished off my wreath by filling in any holes in the arrangement with Spanish moss attached to the floral foam with “S” pins. Then I added a spooky key with a skeleton head that I picked up from Michael’s.
My wreath is ready to greet Trick or Treaters as they come close to ring the bell at my house!
My entryway is ready to greet anyone who is coming to visit! Will you be hanging a Halloween wreath or do you just hang a Fall wreath? I will be changing things up for Fall in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned!
