Simple & Fun Fall Craft Idea: DIY Halloween Owl Wreath

While I’m not usually one to go all out with seasonal and holiday decorations, I do like to put out a few fun pieces each year once the fall season rolls around. Along with a couple new pumpkin-and-apple scented candles, Halloween-themed art pieces and owl throw pillows, one of my favorite additions to this year’s collection is the super cute DIY Halloween owl wreath Stephen and I made using a $20 kit from Paper Source.


Even for novice crafters like us, the instructions were relatively easy to follow, and although it did take a bit longer to complete than we originally expected (mostly because we had to curl each flower petal one at a time), I absolutely love the way it came out. Plus, at just $20, this paper wreath was a bargain compared with a few more elaborate ready-made designs I had recently been eyeing. Overall, it was a fun and simple project, and as you can see, even Molly and Twix had a great time getting in on some paper scrap action! 


Have you done any fun DIY projects or put up any new decorations this fall?

  4. Ok that wreath is awesome. I love it! This is the first year that I'm not sure if I'm putting out our fall decor. It's just that I've unpacked for months and to take the decorations out of their storage just sounds unappealing. Hopefully I'll suck it up and just do it.

    1. Thanks, Faith! I totally hear you about being tired of unpacking things, especially after your move. I really only put out a handful of decorations, since I just don't have the space to store it all or the patience to pack and unpack it all. We do put out a bit more at Christmas, though. Hope you've had a great weekend!
