I know. I know what you’re thinking. After last week’s 30-minute vintage Halloween wreath with the styrofoam base, you thought I was over grapevine wreaths. Well, NEVER! I love a good grapevine wreath and the pirate Halloween grapevine wreath I am sharing with you today is no exception! It’s the perfect addition to my pirate themed Halloween porch.
Pirate Halloween Grapevine Wreath
I picked up most of the items for my pirate Halloween wreath at Hobby Lobby. Where possible, I’ve linked to the actual product purchased. Most of the items are actually in stock year round. I take my time shopping with Hobby Lobby and often return multiple times for one project to catch the items on sale. All of the items I purchase for my wreaths I buy at 40-50% off. This wreath cost under $25.
Here’s what you will need to recreate this pirate Halloween grapevine wreath:
- Grapevine Wreath Form
- Spanish Moss
- Metal Captain Sign
- Metal Anchor
- Metal Turtles
- Black Magnolia Stem x 2
- Botanic Poppy Spray x 2
- Black Ticking Ribbon
- Extra Fine Gold Glitter
- Mod Podge
- DecoArt Bright White Paint
- Foam Skull
- Floral Wire + Wire Cutters
- Hot Glue Gun + Glue
How to make this pirate Halloween grapevine wreath:
- Place the grapevine wreath base on a clear work surface. Remove any tags and hooks.
- Tuck the spanish moss into the grapevine wreath base, using hot glue to secure the moss where necessary.
Note: Don’t worry about securing a majority of the Spanish moss. It will naturally tangle itself around the branches in the grapevine wreath and items added later will help secure it.
- Alter metal pieces as desired.
Captain sign: Brush DecoArt’s bright white paint on the captain sign and then wipe it down so that it looked like a weathered beach sign. Once the white paint is dry brush DecoArt black paint on the letters so they stand out.
Turtles and Anchor: Brush with Mod Podge and sprinkle with extra fine gold glitter.
- Glue and wire metal pieces to the wreath form.
Note: These metal pieces are pretty heavy. I used a significant amount of wire to ensure they’d stay on the wreath. The wire also helps to secure the Spanish moss.
- Add floral stems to the wreath.
- Cut foam skull in half so back lies flat. Attach to the right side of the wreath.
- Twist some of the black and white ticking ribbon around the wreath (add to the top as a wreath hanger, if desired).
Hang your wreath and enjoy!
