All of the spookiness you could ever want is at JOANN stores this season! I was floored by the vast selection and styles of Halloween decor. This year I set out to transform my foyer for Halloween and I found everything I needed to create this vignette under the wreath.

Using a cloche from the fall Joann collection, I added Halloween laser wood cut outs, moss and metal ornaments. The haunted house is battery operated so you can safely illuminate the cloche. You can see how I put it all together in this crafty post. 

I gathered the cloches together with velvet candlesticks, skulls and votive candles on top of grey cheesecloth. 

The vintage inspired skeleton char is a simple DIY using an oversized skeleton wall decal from JOANN’s.  You can find the full tutorial here.

I applied the skeleton decal to drapery lining and used a printable iron-on transfer also from Joann to create the title and list the skeleton parts. A free printable of this file is here.

To top it all off I added a large corner black spider web.  Closer to Halloween, I will likely move it outside to our front porch. It will really pop on our light washed brick.

So let’s get back to that wreath! It is the perfect addition to any wall or even a front door. (My front doors are black so it wouldn’t get to shine there.)

How to make a Simple, Classic Happy Halloween Wreath



  1. Trim the extra-wispy twigs of the wreath. 

This is completely a style preference. I wanted the wreath to look more like spikes.

2. Place wreath in cardboard box or tarp and spray the front of the wreath with a glossy, metallic black paint.

Once it dries, paint the back.

3. While the wreath dries, paint the wood cut out with metallic craft paint.

I chose to leave the skull bare.

This will also likely take 2 coats.

4. Decide on position of cut out.

Apply hot glue to the corners and attach to the wreath. 

It was that easy!!

Use your new Happy Halloween wreath to adorn your door or style it over your own creepy vignette!!
