Halloween Silk-Flower Wreath

This silk-rose wreath -- from once upon a midnight dreary -- is made with materials from a crafts store, and then sprayed it a raven hue and added a silky taffeta ribbon.

  • 25 to 30 four-inch silk roses

  • 16-inch wooden wreath form

  • Hot glue gun

  • Black floral spray

  • Black taffeta ribbon

  • Flat thumb tacks

  • Wire cutters


  1. Use wire cutters to snip silk roses from stems; affix blooms to wreath form with a hot-glue gun.

  2. Working in a well-ventilated area, lay wreath on a sheet of newspaper and spray with black floral spray; let dry for 30 minutes.

  3. Cut about 54 inches of ribbon, and tie a large bow; affix it to top of wreath with glue gun.

  4. To hang, cut a second piece of ribbon to the desired length. Use tacks to fasten one end to the back of the wreath form and the other to the door stile.
