This black wreath is a simple, classy way to decorate for the Halloween season. It features montone colors with just a pop of lighter color with the skull in the center. Deco Mesh wreathes can seem very intimidating from the outside, but after you make a few, you will realize just how easy they are to make and will want to make them all the time!
If you have any questions while you make the wreath, you can watch my video wreath tutorial below.
You will need:
- a wire wreath form
- six rolls of short black mesh
- black roses
- a skull (Oriental Trading has a great selection)
- wire cutters
- a pipe cleaner

Tie the end of one of the black rolls to the outside ring on the wreath. You can also use pipe cleaners to secure it to the frame.

Pinch about three inches of mesh into a loop and push it through the top opening in the wreath. Pinch another three-inch loop and push it through the second opening. Pinch a third three-inch loop and push it through the third opening. Repeat the whole process, starting with the top opening again. Repeat over and over until you run out of the roll and then start over, tying this new roll to the frame before starting the loops again.

Cut the black roses off of the bunches with a pair of wire cutters and slide the stems through the mesh and upturn the end of the stem after you slide it through to keep it from coming back out.
Twist a pipe cleaner around the back of your skull and then twist the pipe cleaner around the wire wreath form to keep the skull in place at the center base of the wreath.
