Cut 2-3 inch strips of fabric to wrap around your wreath. Don’t worry about frayed edges here. The frays add to the Halloween look and feel (like a mummy).

Wrap the fabric around the wreath, overlapping the edges so the white styrofoam does not show through. Continue wrapping until the entire wreath is covered.

If you have extra fabric left over, create a loop at the top and secure it with push pins. If you don’t you can still create the loop- just cut a short piece of fabric and secure it with push pins on the underside of the wreath.
