DIY Pirate Wreath {free template}

Sharing is caring!

My oldest reached the age to decide for himself what he wants to be for Halloween. Once the decision was taken I did my best to keep his mind set on it. I heard stories of kids drafting from one idea to another, which makes it hard when handmade Halloween costumes are involved, which is our case. I create not only the family costumes but also enjoy creating new decorations every year. I love themed Halloweens and this year’s theme is pirates.

DIY pirate wreath - great for a pirate Halloween or birthday party- at Non Toy Gifts

This DIY pirate wreath is great for a pirate themed Halloween or a birthday party and if you replace the white and black combo with cheerful colors and drop the cranium it will turn into a beautiful boat steering wheel for a nautical birthday party.

What you need to create a DIY pirate wreath

-straw wreath

-black crepe-paper streamers

-clear tape

-3  thick (6-mm) white foam sheets

-1 regular white foam sheet

-1 regular black foam sheet

-craft knife

-hot glue gun

Steps to create a DIY pirate wreath

Step 1. Start by winding the streamers around the wreath and secure in place with tape at the back.

Step 2. Cut out the two parts of paddle sticks from the tick white foam sheets and glue them to the wreath, the big ones to the outside and the small ones to the inside. Try to align the two the best that you can.

Step 3. Cut the two circles from the black foam sheet and the cranium from the white foam. Glue the cranium to one circle and then glue the circle inside the wreath. Glue the other circle to the back of the first to keep all the paddle sticks in place.

Find here the template which includes the two parts of the paddle sticks, circle and skull.

Have fun creating your pirate wreath!
