Here's what you'll need to make this Dead Rose Wreath:
• 8" Foam Wreath Form
• 3-4 Black Rose Bunches
• Black or Gray Ribbon
• Glue Gun & Glue Sticks

Foam wreaths are awesome for projects like this, but the hot glue can melt the foam if you add something directly to it. So first you need to cover the wreath with some ribbon. It doesn't matter what kind or color, but I usually go with a wide ribbon in a coordinating color. Add a glob of hot glue to the wreath and attach one end of the ribbon to the wreath form. Wrap the ribbon all the way around the wreath so you don't see any foam showing. Glue the other end of the ribbon down.

Cut the flowers from the stem using some wire cutters. If your stems don't have wire, you can use regular craft scissors. I also cut off the leaves from the stems. Add some glue to the bottom of a rose and place it down on the front of the wreath. Next I would place another rose right next to it (without glue) to see where it looked/fit best. Then add some glue and stick it down. Repeat until the wreath is covered and looks how you want it. For any empty spaces or in places that need a little something extra, I stuck leaves down and in between the flowers.  

The best part about making a wreath for Halloween? You don't have to worry about removing all of those glue gun strings! They will look like cobwebs tangled between all of the dead roses, lace and leaves.

Hang the wreath up to decorate your home, office, or favorite space for Halloween. I hope this tutorial has left you feeling inspired to make on for yourself. The wreath is spookily beautiful for only spending about $5 for everything!
