If you’ve never made a wreath with Duck Tape before, you’re missing out! This DIY Halloween wreath is very simple and can be made with any pattern of tape.
If you haven’t made a wreath out of duct tape before, you are missing out! There are so, so many colors and patterns of duct tape out there, you can make one to fit any theme, holiday, or color scheme. I decided this year it was time to add one to my Halloween decorating.
This DIY Halloween wreath takes about 45 minutes to put together, which is the perfect amount of time to get in the latest episode of whatever Netflix show you happen to be hooked on. And you can make one with any pattern for any holiday or season!
DIY Halloween Wreath
- wreath form
- duct tape (I used one entire roll)
Step 1: Take your duct tape, and cut a length that’s about 3.5″ long (a bit longer or shorter is fine, there’s no need to measure it exactly). Fold it over, so that you have about 1/2″ of exposed tape (you’ll use this to attach the tape to the wreath) and flatten.
Step 2: Attach your tape to your wreath form (it doesn’t matter where you start). You’ll need about three of these, laid side by side and overlapping a bit, to go around your form. You’ll want the front and sides covered; the back doesn’t need to be covered as thoroughly.
After you’ve completed your first row, begin on your second, overlapping your second row with your first so the form is completely covered. Because a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s what the wreath looks like after I’ve done two rows (6 lengths of tape) . . .
Step 3: Work your way around your entire form, cutting, folding and adhering lengths of tape.
When you’re done, hang with a piece of ribbon, fabric, or, if you’re like me . . .
. . . . a scarf! Just fold the scarf in half, attach the folded part to the top of your door (we use pushpins), and tie your ends around the inside of your wreath.
