Hey Friends! I can’t believe that I’m finished decorating for fall – well almost. And I’m already pulling out the Halloween decor and dusting it off.  Today I’m sharing an easy Halloween wreath update. The best part? It can be done in 3 easy steps!

We all have those decor items that have seen better days.

Usually I donate them or pass them along to a new home.

Not today!

I made this Halloween wreath back in 2018.

This year, when I pulled it out of storage it looked a little wilted.

I knew it was time for a little update.

Updating the Wreath

Step 1

Take off the bows, bats, lights and sign.

Once I did that I could tell that it was in better shape than I had originally thought.

I pulled out the Halloween ribbon and made the wreath a new fun bow.

If you need to find fun, inexpensive, and great quality ribbon try here.

Halloween bulbs

Step 2

I found these pink, green and purple Christmas bulbs at Hob Lob.

Yes, they are in the Christmas section!

I strung one of each color on a 12 inch piece of twine and tied them tightly together.

Step 3

Place the bulb cluster on your wreath.

Then pull the twine to the back side and tie the bulbs to the wreath.

Continue this all the way around your wreath until you have the wreath decorated.

TIP: Use twine or wire for easy removal of decor later.

I’m calling my wreath done!

I could easily add more to the wreath, however since it’s going above my mantle this year – and my mantle is going to be a little busy – I’m calling it done!

It was easy, inexpensive and took less than 15 minutes.

Moral of the story?

Don’t get rid of it, update it!

I hope that you enjoyed my easy Halloween wreath update and were inspired to update some of your fall or Halloween items.

Until next time…
