Say goodbye to generic seasonal and holiday decor and make your own beautiful pieces with budget-friendly easy DIYs inspired by global style and modern trends. Hello there! Welcome to The Global Styler hosted by Casa Watkins Living.
If you are new to the series, the gals of The Global Series share a themed-globally inspired DIY or decorating tip on the first Monday of each month.
This month we decided to create a Fall/Halloween door (or wall) hanging. I wanted something modern with a touch of global that would be easy to make for under $10. Read on to learn how to make a modern Halloween wreath with a floral crescent shape. You’ll be amazed at how simple it is!
DIY Crescent Floral Moon Wreath with Brass Bells
So we are still transitioning into our beautiful new home. I still haven’t shared pictures because it is mostly empty and a bit dark. I’m waiting for our final household shipment from Japan with my tripod and decor items (and our mattresses!). But it is a single-story ranch in a beautiful neighborhood in Fort Worth and I already love it to pieces.
The previous owners did such a fantastic job with updates and renovations including the paint colors! I knew having a bold dark front door would be the perfect backdrop for a minimalist Halloween wreath and a white floral crescent moon shape would be a lovely contrast.
Here’s what you need for a modern halloween wreath:
- A piece of cardboard.
- A large embroidery hoop or metal hoop wreath, 12-16″.
- White small faux flowers (two bunches). Find at your local dollar or craft store.
- Hot glue gun and sticks.
- Brass bells/hanging.
How to create a crescent moon template:
- Use the hoop as a guide on a piece of cardboard to create two half circles. Trace your first crescent shape and then move the hoop over 2-4 inches making sure the ends of the half-circle touch the hoop at each end.
- Trace the second crescent shape. Carefully cut it out with a box cutter and trim off rough edges with scissors.
- Prepare the flowers by removing the heads and snip off the stem or flower closure so that it lays flatter. Be careful to no cut too close to the petals so the flower doesn’t fall apart. 😉
- Lay them out on your crescent shape lining the edges first and then filling in the middle. Hot glue each flower head into place.
- Attach the floral moon with cardboard back to the hoop with more hot glue, let dry, and then hang.
- You can add a beautiful piece of ribbon to the top for a hanger or attach a little bit of wire to the hoop behind the flowers. It might help the floral crescent wreath stay straight as the flowers do make it a little unbalanced. I have a larger decorative hook on my front door and was able to hang the wreath straight with no problems.
Adorn with brass bells for an eclectic global vibe! I found mine at a garden center in Japan but places like Cost Plus World Market, Home Goods, or your local craft store will most likely have something similar.
- A piece of cardboard
- A large embroidery hoop or metal hoop wreath, 12-16" wide
- 2 bunches of small white faux flowers from your local dollar or craft store
- Brass bells (optional)
- Hot glue gun and sticks
- Floral-wire cutter
- Box cutter
- Lay your piece of cardboard flat. Use the embroidery hoop to trace a crescent shape (partial half-circle).
- Move the hoop over 2-4 inches making sure the end of the half-circle touches the hoop at each end. Trace a second credence shape.
- Carefully cut out the completed crescent moon shape with a box cutter and trim of rouches edges with scissors.
- Removing the flower heads off the stems by cutting or pulling them off. Cut the knob at the back of the flower head so they lay flatter but not too close to the petals so the flower doesn't fall apart.
- Lay the flower heads out on the crescent shape cardboard lining the edges first and then fill in the middle.
- Hot glue each flower into place.
- Apply hot glue to one side of the embroidery hoop and place the floral crescent moon on top until the hot glue hardens.
- Let completely dry and hang!
- You can also add a piece of ribbon or wire for a hanger and embellish the wreath with brass bells to complete the look.
I love how lightweight the final wreath is! You can easily hang it anywhere but make sure it is protected from the elements if hanging outside. Ours does just fine on the covered front porch.
