My latest craft project was to create a Halloween witch wreath. Poor Hilda ran smack into my front door! In addition to an aspirin for a bad headache, she’s Gonna Need a New Broom.
It’s been pouring down rain the last few days, so I decided it was a good time to work on a few craft projects and fall wreath orders for my new Etsy shop.
After retiring from my job as a marketing consultant at Boeing, I launched Debbee’s Buzz at the end of October last year.
My first post featured another witch wreath, Bewitching DIY Halloween Wreath. That was followed by, DIY Trick or Treat Halloween Wreath.
Since I only had a handful of followers at that time, I thought you might enjoy revisiting those two Halloween posts, along with my latest witch wreath project.
Hoping the trio of Halloween wreaths will inspire your own seasonal decorating.

Looking at You Kiddo
Rather than make the round of craft stores, I decided to go through my own stash of Halloween craft supplies.
I already had everything I needed to create a new witch wreath; with the exception of a package of black pipe cleaners.
How do you like it?
The Gonna Need a New Broom design was built around the witch’s dangling legs. They were found in a clearance bin last year at Pat Catans.
I love the black and white bloomers and large purple bow on her backside.
All the other mesh, ribbons, and even the eyeballs were leftover from last year’s two Halloween wreath projects.
When I make wreaths, I like to use a variety of ribbons, embellishments and materials.
With the latest witch wreath, I also combined several deco mesh techniques.
If you like what you see, the Gonna Need a New Broom witch wreath is available at debbeesbuzzboutique.
Bewitching Witch Wreath
Last year’s witch wreath design also had dangling legs.
I made twins, one for myself and another for a client. Both hang on a black front door.
Inspiration for last year’s witch wreath came from the Come in My Pretties sign.
My first ever blog post is a seven-step tutorial on how to make your own witch wreath.
See the complete step-by-step process at Bewitching DIY Halloween Wreath. Have you ever made a mesh and ribbon wreath? If you are the least bit crafty, I encourage you to try it.
Which witch wreath do you like best?
Trick or Treat My Sweet
For the Trick or Treat wreath, I started with a ghoulish green mesh base to give it a vibrant glow. That mesh is the same underlying foundation of the Gonna Need a New Broom witch wreath.
Like the other Halloween wreath designs, I used a variety of materials. However, it’s the first wreath project where I incorporated mesh string.
For complete instructions and illustrative photos, see DIY Trick or Treat Halloween Wreath.
Shortly after it was created, the wreath sold out in my Etsy shop.
How will you decorate your front door to meet trick or treaters?

This wreath is adorable Debbee…I love your imagination and inspiration!
Thanks Kari, I went for whimsical vs ghoulish as to not scare off the kiddos!
The Gonna Need A New Broom wreath is truly adorable! I love how the witch looks like she crashed in and the eyeballs! The trick or treat one is too cute with all the tied bows and accents. You really are creative and do a wonderful job on these wreaths!
Thank you Liz — crashed is exactly what I was going for! That’s why I almost named the wreath, “Splat!”
Love this wreath
Looking forward to all for fall
It is my favorite time of year
I love this time of year too. Looking forward to sharing a couple of tables, crafts and maybe a decorated house “tour.” You should come see it in person — open invite!
Witcheroo to you my friend. I need more doors so all my witches can put the kettle on before they fly off to Blue mountain for the annual meeting. Ms Wreath Maker, you are the best. Any idea how many hours go into each wreath?
My thoughts are with your sis in SC.
Would still love to see a photo of our twin wreath hanging on your front door! The number of hours varies, and I usually break it up over 3-4 days. Not counting shopping for materials, I’d say 5-6 hours on average.
Thanks for your kind thoughts about my sister. They are altering evacuation plans from Columbia, SC now to Florida to stay across other family members’ homes, including my youngest sister. In addition to 6 adults, there are 3 cats and two dogs! It’s closer than driving to Pittsburgh.
Fun ideas to start the Halloween prep. I wouldn’t have thought to use the mesh tubing, you always something creative going on. So glad you started your blog, look forward to seeing your latest.
Hi Leanne, always so nice to hear from you. I saw the mesh tubing used on a Christmas wreath and went on a search to Michaels, Hobby Lobby and Pat Catans and came up empty. Imagine my surprise to find it at Dollar Tree!
P.S. Check your email today, there’s a special message from me — I’m excited to hear back from you!
Oh my gosh absolutely adorable! Have a great week! XO
Hi Barbara, thanks for stopping by.
This is so darn cute! Thanks for the inspiration.
My witch wreath is looking pretty tired, you’ve inspired me to get busy! So cute!
