Pottery Barn Inspiration Halloween Wreath

As I was scrolling online, I came across this festive Halloween wreath on the Pottery Barn website.

I thought it would be perfect for my door this year, but yikes, I was not willing to pay $59 for it.

I knew I could DIY this for much less. As a matter of fact, I think I like my wreath better.

Supplies Used:

The clip on bats are available at Dollar tree. You get 4 bats in a package for $1. I purchased 3 packages for my wreath.

My twig wreath was purchased at Hobby Lobby at 50%, off so I paid $10 for it. However, if you already have a grapevine wreath, you could just add twigs to it.

The LED lights I had purchased several years back for a party. I found them at the dollar spot at Target.

Lighting a Halloween Wreath

Adding fairy light to Halloween Wreath.

The inspiration wreath from Pottery Barn was lit and I knew that lighting the wreath for Halloween would create a spooky atmosphere for my front porch.

Fairy lights or LED lights are readily available on Amazon, however I found mine several years ago in the dollar spot at Target.

LED lights are great for holidays or parties. In fact we’ve even used them for a wedding to light up the centerpieces on the tables.

How to Make a Bat Halloween Wreath

Begin by securing the end of the LED lights and then wrap around the twig wreath.

I switched my lights on while wrapping around the wreath. By doing this I could easily see where the lights were placed.

Once the lights are wrapped completely around the wreath I wrapped the remaining wire around one of the twigs on the back.

Next, I secured the battery pack to the wreath with wire.

Adding Bats to Halloween Wreath

Dollar Tree Bats

Now we’re ready to add the bats. I found the bats at Dollar Tree. There are 4 bats per package. Such a steal!

Each bat has a clip on the back, which makes it super easy to attach.

I simply clipped the bats randomly around the twigs on the wreath. Three packages were plenty for my wreath.

    I have to say, I love them both! I actually think making your own was the best idea because it costs to much to purchase theirs. I do like that they have painted theirs black but what I would have done is painted the middle black and then just a little way up some of the branches but not all. I think the black just gives it a richer appeal. Again, that’s my take on it and I love them both!

      I love your idea Shirley of painting part of the way. I do love to use black. I chose to not paint mine, because I wanted to reuse it for other season. Thanks again for your creative idea.

    I love your wreath. I’m new to this. I’m having a hard time with anyone answering my questions. I’ve placed several and never get an answer. So if you don’t mind, I’ll ask you. I’m trying to tell me where I can find the posting for the pastel coffee filter wreath. I’ve looked in the find a project and cannot find any wreaths posted in there. I looked in windows and doors, outdoors, etc. and can’t find any wreaths. Could you help me? Please? Thank you even if you can’t find it.
