Festive Halloween Rag Wreath
I love this delightful Halloween Rag Wreath. It makes me happy. Made with colorful Halloween fabric cut or torn into strips, it's easy to make and welcomes guests to your Happy Halloween Home.
Instructions/tutorial can be found at: budgetdecorating.
Burlap Rag-tied Halloween Wreath
Another fun and easy wreath. Burlap is so appropriate for this time of year, but using black gives this one a kind of country elegance. A slightly different effect could be created with natural burlap.

Halloween Cupcake Paper Wreath
You might not know at first that this wreath is crafted with cupcake paper liners. I love how people can make humble everyday things into something beautiful and elegant. There are endless design and color possibilities with cupcake papers as the main medium. Quick, go find some cupcake liners and start creating.

Black Cupcake Liners
Newspaper Halloween Wreath
I don't know why, but this one became my favorite. I think because the black and white newspaper created a monochrome look that reminded me of film noir. This basic wreath could form the backdrop for many different styles of embellishment. The sunflower pictured here warms it up. You could go very creepy with this one for a haunted house feel, or you could make it even more elegant with more black and white. I could see a happy ghost peeking through the center of the wreath. Almost a blank slate to work from.

Striking Elegance from the Dollar Store
Another example of humble beginnings. Use very inexpensive craft materials to make this very classy Halloween door wreath. Or of course you could make a natural one with the falling leaves in your neighborhood.
Inspiration Wreath: frivoli-tea.
Halloween Mask Wreath
This is one of those that makes you catch your breath and think, "Why didn't I think of that?" Simply uniform dominoe masks glued together to form a wreath.
Inspiration Wreath: mardigrasoutlet.
Black Tutu Tulle Wreath
How striking is this one! Easily made with black tulle and topped off with a simple orange ribbon. Very simple, but Wow!

Orange & Black Tulle Wreath
Another take on the tulle wreath. You'll find complete step-by-step instructions and a whole lot of other Halloween decorating ideas and instructions at : everydayisacraftingday.
Someone's Watching You
I think what makes this one stand out is the wild, scragginess of the wreath itself. You get the feeling of eyes watching you in a dark forest. What an easy idea to turn your front door into one of spooky mystery.
Inspiration Wreath: seasonalhome.
Boo Ribbon Wreath
The simplicity of ribbon is all you need for this streamlined but effective Halloween door wreath.

Halloween Critters Wreath
This particular wreath is crocheted, but critters could be purchased or produced by sewing, knitting, or even wood cutouts.
Instructions for this one are shared by favecrafts.
Candy Corn Halloween Wreath
This one requires a little more work, but what a pay-off. Inspired by traditional Candy Corn Halloween candy, the directions, patterns and turtorial are all included at craescreations.
Get the kids involved in making this one. It can be as simple as Tootsie Pops wrapped in white tissue, or as elegant as using tulle or another more elegant fabric.
Inspiration Wreath: anchormommy.
Fun & Quirky Raggamuffin Wreath
Just a whole lot of ribbon tied to an inexpensive wreath. Notice that not all of the ribbon is a Halloween theme. I think that's the genius of this one.
Inspiration Wreath: ourniftynotebook.
Okay, this one is way too creepy for me. I like fun Halloween stuff, and I HATE snakes. But the idea was worth noting. The snakes are rubber snakes hot-glued to a vine wreath, then sprayed black.
Thanks, Martha. . . I think.
Not Too Spooky Spider Web Wreath
This one captures the spookiness of Halloween without creeping you out. I thought it was very artistically done, and the spikey twig wreath gives it a definite designer feel.
