This once upon a midnight dreary wreath was created with materials from a crafts store, then sprayed it a raven hue and accented with 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


  1. Remove stems from roses, then attach blooms to wreath form with a hot-glue gun.

  2. Lay wreath on a piece of newspaper in a well-ventilated area, and spray with black floral spray. Let dry for 30 minutes.

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