How to Make a Halloween Tulle Wreath
You’ll need to gather together a few things to make this wreath.
You’ll need a pool noodle, of course. I used a black one, because, well, Halloween.
Since you’re repurposing pool noodles, you may also want to repurpose some of your old decorations like I did here.
Past decorations were getting boring, so using them in new ways gives them a fresh look and a new life.
You’ll need a few more things to make this tulle wreath for Halloween and I’ve listed them below.
Here are the things you’ll need
Hot glue gun & glue
4 rolls of 6″ Tulle – These are the ones we used – 4 colors, orange, purple, green and black
Embellishments – we used old Halloween decorations. Check out Amazon for some ideas.
Ribbon or wire for a bow or hanger

If you haven’t made one before, you can use our tutorial.
Next, cut the tulle into 20-22″ strips. The ones on our wreath were 22″.
Tie the strips onto the pool noodle wreath. We knotted them. You can see this in the video below, too.
You can alternate colors or make a section for each color, whichever way you prefer. We made a section of each color.
Add embellishments like this ghost decoration we salvaged from an old project.
You could add a bat, a pumpkin, or any other scary or non-scary Halloween object.
Then tie on a ribbon at the top to use for hanging your Halloween Tulle Wreath.
How cute is that?
Tulle can be static-y. In order to reduce the static and the “stick-together-ness” of the tulle, we just wiped on it a little with a dryer sheet.
That did the trick, for sure.
Tie the strips close together to start with instead of trying to move them after the fact like I did. It’s easier to tighten them up when they’re already pretty close together.
Use lots of glue to hold your embellishments, but keep it hidden.
If your wreath is outdoors or on your door for Halloween, it might get a workout.
You don’t want parts falling off into a trick-or-treaters bucket!
So, be sure to glue it well!
That’s it! You have a cute little wreath for Halloween, you saved a landfill from a pool noodle and you got crafty with me!
