Can you believe Halloween is upon us?
I had to change up from my fall leaves wreath so to ring in the start of this spooky month I thought I would share my first Halloween project, a pretty wreath gone bad when the rats stopped by for a visit!
This rat wreath Halloween decoration is a super easy craft you can put together with just a few supplies.
Plus, my Creative Canadian blog hop group has teamed up to bring you 8 other must see Halloween ideas!
- FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Wreath
- Life like Rats from Darice
- Strip of scrap fabric
- Loops and Threads Silk yarn from Michaels
- Orange Chevron 3/4″ Ribbon from May Arts Ribbon
- Four large corsage pins
Wrap the styrofoam wreath with the strip of scrap fabric, all the way around. This will allow you to use your hot glue gun to attach the yarn, and also reduce the styrofoam mess.
Starting on the outside edge of the wreath hot glue the silk yarn the the wreath. When you get back to the starting point continue around overlapping the edge of the first strip. Continue until you reach the inside of the wreath form.
To attach the rats to the wreath you will use the corsage pins. Arrange the rats as desired, on the reverse side stick the large pins directly through the Life like Rats into the FloraCraft Foam wreath.
Loop a 24″ piece of May Arts Chevron ribbon through the rat wreath and tie in a knot leaving approximately a 2″ end.
I wanted to create a pretty Halloween wreath that looked as if the rats invaded it… don’t they look hungry?!
I think if it weren’t for the teeth, the rats would almost be cute!
