Wicked Halloween Wreath & Entryway Display

Wicked Poisoned Apple Entryway Display #Halloween #spookyspaces

I am so excited to show off my entryway display for Halloween! It is all kinds of spooky and fun!

The main focus of the display is my new Wicked Halloween Wreath. It has a gorgeous lace overlay and it shows off this fabulous poisonous apple.

The wreath is a really fast one too, which I love. I also love spiders apparently.
Well, plastic spiders. Let’s not get crazy here.

Wicked Wreath for Halloween

I wanted my wreath to be indoors, so I hung it inside this yummy giant black frame, with some striped ribbon and a satin flower. I love the contrasts in this!

Framed Halloween Wreath

The tutorial for the wreath is super easy and all of my supplies came from Jo-Ann. Handy dandy!

You’ll need:

  • 1 Styrofoam wreath form
  • White Satin ( I used about 1/3 yd of 54″ satin)
  • Black Lace Fabric – 1/2 yard
  • 1 6″ doily
  • Moss
  • Apple
  • Spray paint (optional) and glitter paint
  • Plastic Spiders
  • Paper and printer for pennant
  • Pennant Pattern
  • ribbon for pennant and hanging (optional)
  • Hot Glue
  • Optional: Glitter for stem and wire for adding apple to wreath

Start by cutting your satin into 3″ strips. Wrap your satin around the wreath form. (You can also use satin ribbon if you want. Check the prices, for me the satin fabric ended up being cheaper since it was on sale. Woot!)

wrapping satin around wreath

Lay the satin covered form onto the wrong side of the black lace. Cut a small hole in the center, then cut notches into the center to allow it to wrap around the form. Hot glue the lace to the inside of the wreath.

Wrap the fabric on the outside around the wreath and glue onto the back of the wreath. Trim the lace on the back side.

Lay your doily over the bottom center section of the wreath so the doily hangs down off the wreath a bit. Glue in place.

Doily on black and white wreath

Glue down a little bunch of moss over the doily.

Gluing moss to wreath

To give the faux apple a little more of a “poisoned” look, I did a light coat of burgundy spray paint, then a light coat of black. Cover the apple from top to bottom in red glitter craft paint. Use long smooth brush strokes so you don’t end up with clumps of glitter.

Glitter paint on apple

Add a 5″ length of wire if you have some on hand to attach the apple to the wreath to the bottom of the apple. If you don’t have wire, you can just glue it in place.

Adding wire stem to apple

Add your apple to the wreath by pushing the wire into the wreath. Glitter up the stem if you’d like. Glue some little spiders into the moss to up the creepiness factor. These were a bag of spider rings that I picked up. The ring part just unscrewed from the bottom of the spider so they were easy to add to all the displays.

Adding apple to wreath

Print out your pennant and trim the pieces. Glue onto a piece of ribbon.

Wicked Pennant

Pin the pennant ribbon to the back side of the wreath. Sewing pins work great for this.

If you are adding your wreath to a frame, you can glue a loop of ribbon around the frame. I also made a sweet little bow and satin flower to add to the top of the frame.

Wicked Hoop Display

I love it!

I added a few other items to the display to continue with the Poison Apple theme.

Candles and Halloween Display

The candlesticks were plain white candles that I glued glitter ribbon to. I also tied some ribbons and pendants to the lamp shades so they’d fit a little better with the theme.

Halloween Rose

This rose was a little too bright red, so it got a dusting of black spray paint to darken it up a bit.

Spooky Crystal Ball

I’m also super in love with my spooky skull crystal ball. The tutorial for him will be coming tomorrow!

Halloween Frame and Hoop Art

I’m so in love with the fabric for the hoop art! I think they really stand out and add something fun to the display.

Rhinestone embellished hoop art

I even got a little crazy and added some red rhinestones to the hoops that had this fabric in them.

    I have just found Pinterest and thank goodness I didn’t find it before my Halloween party October 5th. I already have a dozen ideas for next years party from your blog—Thank you. I LOVE the crystal balls, the eyeballs, spider mummies and the fact that you like “shiny”. You can accomplish a lot with spray paint and glitter. I did a similar mirror several years ago and removed the silver with a razor blade although I don’t know that would be any easier than oven spray. Thank you for your ideas and will be checking back often.

    This is a really great display. I’m putting together a kit to make your crystal ball candles. Sometime this winter I’ll be knee deep in Halloween. Lol
