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.
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.

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?
