Spooky Bookish Halloween Wreath Tutorial

A fun and festive Halloween wreath that's great for both indoor decor as well as your front porch decorations.


  • Wreath form I used a foam one I found at the dollar store
  • Mod Podge Outdoor
  • Brush
  • Scrapbook Paper/Letters and skull cut out
  • Ribbon
  • Book to destroy I always buy them at the dollar store
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Stiffy fabric stiffening agent
  • Glue


  • Tear some book pages into strips. You can do it smaller if you like that (you can see an example in my book page ornaments) but I wanted it to look more wrapped. I use double sided tape just to hold the pieces in place. Set aside
  • Measure how long you want your “banner” to go adding some room for ripples. Paint the ribbon with a generous amount of Stiffy. It comes out looking like watery glue. Then position to add some ripples. Allow to dry completely
  • Cut your scrapbook paper. I did mine on my Cricut. The skull is from the “monster bash” cartridge. You can just as easily use pre-cut letters and images from the store.
  • Paint your wreath with a generous coat of Outdoor Mod Podge.
  • Repeat with your letters and skull. Allow to dry completely.
  • Glue or tape your ribbon in position on your wreath.
  • Glue the letters in place.
  • Make your ribbon by folding both colors in a few loops.
  • Then with a smaller piece of ribbon tie a knot around both loops. Then leaving a little space between tie another knot. This will be how you slide the ribbon onto the wreath hook
  • Look your hanging piece of ribbon and tie two knots like you did for the bow and then a third to secure the outer knot.
  • Hang the wreath and top with the bow.
  • With a piece of double sided tape or some glue attach the skull
