There are so many spooky craft projects that are fun to create. Today I’m showing you how to make one of my favorites. This Eat, Drink, and be Scary Halloween wreath is so festive and adorable.

Many of y’all know that Halloween is my favorite holiday for craft for. And I know that, for many of you, this eat, drink, and be scary Halloween wreath embodies your favorite parts of the holiday. Eats, sweets, and beverage treats! In the video below, I show you how to use deco mesh and a super cute ghost sign to make the perfect Halloween creation.

Do It Yourself Eat Drink and Be Scary Halloween Wreath

Eat Drink and be Scary Halloween Wreath

One of the things that I like best about this project is that I get to use a TON of different ribbons, y’all! I use separate patterns for the bows and the ribbons tails. I also use up some scrap Halloween ribbon by adding single strips of them to my bow. Not only is this a great way to use up leftovers, it also adds variety and dimension to your bows! If you want more tips on how to use your extra craft supplies, I have a post that will help you out!

Because I use my extra ribbons for this wreath, not all of my bows are exactly the same. That’s okay y’all! When you make yours it will look different from mine and that’s okay too! Listen, when it comes to making wreaths just make sure that your ribbons match your sign in some way and all will be well. Plus, with Halloween, there are so many ribbon patterns that follow the general color scheme of the holiday that it is hard to go wrong.
