DIY Skull Halloween Wreath with Dollar Tree

October 15, 2018 0 Comments

“It’s getting spooky in here!” I may have shouted to my husband as I decorated the house for Halloween. All Hallows Eve is quickly approaching, so I wanted to share a really fun, ridiculously easy DIY Skull Halloween wreath tutorial with you guys today!

October has always been my favorite month – the air chills and the leaves start to turn. We had our first cool morning at the beginning of the month and I walked outside and just felt invigorated. It also doesn’t hurt that October has arguably the most fun holiday too.

Growing up, my brother and I were always dressed and made up to the nine’s for Halloween. I have so many fond memories of getting my costume put together. Since I don’t have kids yet, I like dressing up my house instead.

My secret weapon to scary cute decor is Dollar Tree. I love using their products as a base for DIY projects. I created my DIY Skull Halloween wreath with just 3 items, for less than $10 and in less than 10 minutes. You seriously can’t beat it.

DIY Skull Halloween Wreath

Materials Needed:

  • Plastic skulls (I laid mine on the floor of the store in a circle until I had the size wreath I wanted)
  • Black Wire
  • Halloween or black ribbon


  1. If you’d like to paint your skulls a different color, spray paint them before you start. I ultimately left mine as is, but was super tempted to paint them metallic gold.
  2. Poke holes large enough to feed wire through on both sides of each of the skulls. I used a soldering iron because it was super easy and quick.
  3. Take your wire and thread each of the skulls on.
  4. After you have all of your skulls threaded, pull the two ends of the wire together as tight as you can and tie the wire together as many times as needed to secure the wreath. Wrap ribbon around the wire and hang!

That’s it! How easy is that? Plus, I only spent $9 total on the supplies to make my DIY Skull Halloween wreath. Make sure you hit up Dollar Tree soon because they’re already making way for Christmas decor.
