Halloween Rat Wreath

October 2nd, 2014 | Halloween, Learn How, Seasonal

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.

Creepy DIY Halloween Rat Wreath



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.
