It’s one of our most popular wreath boards because there’s just so much you can do with it. Making wreaths with our boards is just so fun, easy, and satisfying. You’re going to love that DIY feeling!
Read on to learn how to make your Halloween wreath on our Character Board!
Start Your Halloween Wreath with the UITC™ Character Wreath Board
Making a Halloween wreath all begins with a UITC™ Character Wreath Board.
The UITC™ Character Wreath Board is a solid round design made from 100% recycled plastic. It’s also 100% weather-proof, made to withstand all kinds of outdoor conditions. This is very important in the chilly, wet, and windy fall months! You can even re-use the board if you’d prefer to make another design. It’s durable and constructed to last.
This board is 16″ in diameter unfinished and creates a finished wreath approximately 20-32″ in diameter depending on the materials you use.
The centre of the Character Board is where the magic begins! This board is designed to have an image affixed to the middle; it could depict a character’s face, scenery, or a theme. Whatever you choose to put in the centre, from a monster face to a fun Halloween greeting, will be the “star” of your creation. Ultimately, the image selection will be the anchor for your design choices… And we’ve got so many options for your wreath centre!
Image Inserts: Add “Character” To Your Wreath
At Unique in the Creek, we offer a wide selection of image inserts that you can affix to the centre of your Character Board. No matter what character or theme you choose for your Halloween wreath, we probably have an insert for it! Our inserts come in three types to best suit your needs: Vinyl (the most popular), Paper, and Digital.
Our vinyl inserts are so easy to use — just peel and stick!
Each vinyl insert is entirely laminated so it is protected from scratching, UV rays, and harsh weather conditions. Your image will stay as vibrant as the day you purchased it!

The UITC™ paper image inserts are high quality colour and laser printed. Simply cut to size and decoupage your image to your Character Board. No wiring required!
We also have digital image inserts, which you can download and print right at home. The purchase includes unlimited usage of the image. You can print the image over and over again for all of your workshop and craft show needs!
Add Materials & Accessories
Once you have your chosen image insert affixed to the middle of the board, it’s time to add materials and accessories to your wreath!
You can decorate the outer rings of the board with deco mesh, felt, fabric, ribbon, or other materials and accessories. This will give your Halloween wreath the decorative dimensions that make those amazing finished wreaths you see on Pinterest so dynamic. What’s more, you can get all this and more in our online store!
You can also browse your local craft or dollar store for extra materials to make an eye-catching wreath for the lowest price possible. It’ll look like a million bucks when it only cost a few dollars. You can find some great things for your Halloween wreath at the dollar store, including fall florals, spiderwebs, costume elements, and more!
We recommend using cable ties (zip ties) with all of our DIY wreath boards to attach your materials. You can use any material you wish as long as you can zip a cable tie around it. This helps you use fewer materials so that the wreath making process is more cost effective and environmentally friendly. (No need to wrap materials around the board, thank goodness!)

(Or, you can flip the whole thing around and put your materials on top and your image insert below, it’s totally up to you!)
