Creative Halloween Wreath & Thanksgiving Decorating Ideas

Fall is one of the very best times of year to be creative with your home decor. With Thanksgiving it’s all about the abundance of the fall harvest and with Halloween you can go cute, creepy, or scary. There are just so many creative Halloween wreath and Thanksgiving decorating ideas that we’d love to share with you, so let’s dive in!

Are you more of a Halloween wreath type of person…

Here are just a few creative Halloween wreath ideas!

…or do you get more excited by the fall harvest and Thanksgiving decor?

And here are just a few Thanksgiving decorating ideas!

Or why not choose both Halloween and Thanksgiving? Around here, we love all of the fall holidays and all of the creative home decor possibilities associated with them.

Choose Your Own Halloween & Thanksgiving Adventure

There are just so many fantastic crafting opportunities this time of year and every decision you make is an opportunity for CREATIVITY. From your wreath board to your mesh, ribbon, colour choices, and all of your accessories like wreath signs and attachments, every item will contribute to making your wreath unique and personal.

At Unique in the Creek, we now have ELEVEN different types of patented wreath boards! The shape, size, and design of each wreath board lends itself to a new opportunity for your unique ideas. This is where the creative magic starts! Which wreath board will you use?

The UITC™ Wreath Board is the beginning of your wreath making journey. The principle is simple but brilliant: Use zip ties to load your board and then you’ll be able to attach any materials you’d like to create your Halloween or Thanksgiving wreath.

Here you can see Laurie attaching yellow mesh to a board that she has loaded with zip ties to create a beautiful sunflower, perfect for fall:

With this clever and easy system, you’ll get beautiful results every time!

Halloween Wreath & Thanksgiving Decor Materials

Next you’ll pick your colours and materials, which usually begins by choosing up to three colours of mesh. You may just choose one colour of mesh, while designs like our Ombre Flower Wreaths use three colours. Also remember that you can make your wreath with other materials like ribbon, fabric, etc.

Keep in mind that the mesh that’s shown here is simply a default selection of the most recently added to our shop. We add new mesh and materials to our shop every day and we have literally THOUSANDS of products to choose from with a massive selection for fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving designs.

Next, choose your other materials, ribbons, and accessories. Again, please keep in mind that the products displayed here are simply the most recently added to our shop. Browse our huge selection and be inspired by the extensive selection!

A perfect finishing touch to a Halloween or Thanksgiving wreath is often a Wreath Sign. You won’t be disappointed by our selection here either! There are so many options to choose from and your choice will help add personality to your finished design.

Types of Halloween Wreath & Thanksgiving Designs

Some of our favourite styles of wreaths for fall are the ones that incorporate a cute and seasonal face into the middle, like our signature Scarecrow Wreath.

This type of wreath is usually made on a UITC™ Character Wreath Board! If you ever see a cute pumpkin wreath or a bewitching witch wreath with the face set back in the centre, the maker likely achieved that look by applying a vinyl decal to the centre of the Character Board.

Here are just a few examples of some fall and Halloween vinyl decals:

Be sure to check the latest selection of Vinyl Decal Centres here.

We’ve written an entire blog specifically about how to Make a Halloween Wreath Using the UITC™ Character Board so we won’t go into all of the details in this blog. Be sure to check out the Character Board blog here.

But the possibilities don’t end there! Again, we have ELEVEN different wreath boards to choose from and each type of board lends itself to new creative possibilities. We recently added the new UITC™ Rectangle Board to the shop, which we’re really excited about. With this new “swag” board, which comes in a 2-pack, not only can you create rectangle-shaped wreaths, but you can also put the rectangles together to make new creatively-shaped wreath designs and centrepieces too!

Just look at this stunning piece of Thanksgiving home decor that Laurie made made using the Rectangle Board! It can also be placed on your dinner table as a centrepiece.

Laurie isn’t the only creative mind at Unique in the Creek. We recently held our second edition of Wreath Wars, this time between Tanya and Tina Kelly. Though Tanya isn’t even a wreath maker herself, she gave Tina Kelly a good run for her money in this friendly little competition!

Tanya’s wreath on the left used the UITC™ Rail Board and Tina Kelly’s used the UITC™ Rectangle Board. Which one is your favourite?
