Halloween Crafts: Make a Cheesecloth Wreath

Just wrap & hang – it IS that easy!

Gotta love craft projects that barely warrant instructions! Just take a look at our finished cheesecloth wreath and you can see how easy it is to make. The base is a foam wreath, which we wrapped in cheesecloth. Fray the edges with that favorite sewing supply of yours, the seam ripper. Embellish it with store-bought critters and other Halloween decorations. We had extra time and cheesecloth, so we took it up a notch and draped the front porch, too. Want to see? It’s spooky cute …

4) Tie on your ribbon and hang it up! (We created a loop around the wreath and tied a bow around the loop, linked like a chain.)

5) Get crazy. (We did!) We tacked and draped the extra cheesecloth we had on-hand to the covered porch. Nice ghostly effect, huh?
