Halloween Bandana Wreath- Easy Last Minute Craft

Hey friends, I have fun and oh so easy craft to show you. It’s a cute Halloween Bandana Wreath you can make in only 10-15 minutes.

We don’t get too many kids trick-or-treating at our house because of our hilly neighborhood.  We get a few so I keep the outside decorations kind of minimal  That’ll probably change once I have grand kids 🙂

I found some awesome bandanas in Halloween motif so I decided on the spot I was going to make Halloween Bandana Wreath.  I grabbed 6 of each color not knowing how many I’d actually need.

Please pardon the poor quality process pictures.  I actually recorded while I made the wreath and forgot to take pictures.  So I snapped some screenshots from the video for this post.  You can watch the cute video I made below.

You can also update it with painted wooden boo letters.

For this project I actually used 4 orange and 3 black bandanas. You’ll need to use more if you use a bigger wreath form.  Also, more bandanas will produce a fuller look.

For starters open and unfold the bandanas until they have only one fold down the center.  Run your fabric scissors up the side to cut the bandana into two halves.

Next, cut up the center lengthwise of the bandana so you how have 4 pieces.  Don’t worry if the fold from the factory isn’t perfect.  Once you get them on the wreath no one will know.

Do this for all the bandanas that will be on your Halloween Bandana Wreath.

Determine the pattern you want for your wreath.  I alternated colors on mine.  To attach the bandanas to your wreath take one length of bandana and fold it in half lengthwise, then fold it over on itself to make a loop.

Slide the open end of the bandana under the wreath form and then slip the two loose ends over and through the loop.  Pull tight.

Keep working in alternating order 1 black bandana and 1 orange bandana until your wreath is full.  You might have to push a bunch out of the way to get the last few in.  Since I used an odd number of orange I slipped those in randomly.

After you have all of the bandana pieces on the wreath go around and pull on and snug up the loops against the wreath form.

Slip a doubled up piece of raffia around the wreath form similar to the bandana lengths and use that to hang on your door, mirror, or anywhere it will look beautiful.

This is my first bandana wreath but they are by no means new.  The first time I saw one my friend Denise at My Thrifty House made one for The 4th last year. 

Then I started seeing them pop up all over Pinterest and pinned a few to my Wreaths and Door Decor Board.  I decided I needed to make one too and was so happy to finally find the bandana display.

Hi Cheryl, I got them at my local Walmart store. I included links to some on Amazon in the original post I wrote in 2017 but it looks like they don't carry them now. So I updated the link as I found some other Halloween designs that might work for you. I also included a link to some on Walmart's website that might work as well. If you make one I'd love to see it. You can email it to me if you want at [email protected]
