Its already the middle of October and If your like me you’ve already started Christmas crafts.
Today I am sharing a wooden coffin shaped wreath stand.
This works up in an afternoon and by now Halloween wreaths are highly discounted, a perfect weekend project, or pin it for next year.
We made this early in the season, it was added to our to do list for Halloween back in the spring.
RE USED THE WOODEN FRAME FROM AN OLD HALLOWEEN SIGN,ADDED A DOLALR STORE SKELETON AND SOME CROCHETED FLOWERS AND MADE THIS WREATH, NEXT YEAR IT WILL BE JACK SKELLINGTON TO GO WITH THE ZERO DOG HOUSE WE HAVE BUILT THIS YEAR. THE SCARECROW IS MADE FROM PINE BOARDS MY BROTHER IN LAW GAVE ME. I THINK NEXT YEAR HIS HAT NEEDS SOME FLORAL.
It is made with fence boards 6 ft long, you need 5 of them- 4 for the front and 1 to cut for the back.
Black or Grey outdoor paint or can be left natural because fence boards are treated wood meant for outdoor use.
Hook to hang your wreath from
1.1/4 inch screws
Lay your 4 boards side by side and on the 2 outer boards mark to shape your coffin

Using your jig saw cut the outer boards
Lay them out side by side and now use your 5th board and cut it to fit width wise on your coffin and use your screws to attach them to your planks. Use 3 boards spread apart, and 2 screws into each board.

Paint both sides and then attach your hook and place a wreath on it.
