Halloween decorating can get expensive quickly! However, the price of this Pottery Barn knock-off Halloween wreath is anything but scary!

Cute, spooky, and sophisticated is what comes to mind! Isn’t that how everyone wants their Halloween decorations to be? Ha!
However, I can’t spend an arm and a leg on new decorations every year. Because of that, I’m always on the lookout for cheap Halloween decorations or ways to knock-off a more expensive item.
While browsing around Pottery Barn’s Halloween section, I saw this adorable and chic Halloween wreath! The moment I saw it, a light bulb went off in my head, and I thought, “I could totally make this!”
I already had a grapevine wreath that I had purchased at JoAnn Fabrics a while ago, so all I needed was to find some “adorable” bats (if bats can be adorable)!
On the hunt for “adorable” bats, I came across a couple of inexpensive possibilities:
The little guys above are kind of cute. Right?
They are furry and you can’t really see their horrifyingly sharp teeth! That’s why I picked the second bat for my wreath. If I had to make it again, I might get two large furry bats (second image) and two small ones (first image) like the Pottery Barn wreath, but I still LOVE my Halloween wreath! I might even add some black polka-dot burlap to make a sweet little bow at the bottom…if I have time. Ha.
If you are looking for your bats to be a little scarier, check out these possibilities below! These bats really resemble the real thing with their red beady eyes and freaky looking faces! Yikes!
After I finished this EASY DIY Halloween wreath, I hung it on my front door above my DIY wicked witch legs doormat. (You can read about that DIY project HERE!) I have a few more things that I want to add to my front porch area, and then it will be complete!
DETAILS to DIY the Halloween Wreath:
2. Fake Bats (These are the ones I used.)
Cut the black string in half that is attached to the bat. Repeat for all bats. You will use this string to tie the bats to the grapevine wreath.
Place the bats on the wreath where you would like them and tie them to the grapevine.
Use the glue gun to place some glue under the bats so that they are secured to wreath. Even though the bats are tied, I’m a belt and suspenders kind of gal, so add the glue just in case!
Hang your wreath and enjoy!
