30 Crafty Days of Halloween

Hi there! I’m Kara, the creative mommy blogger behind Mine for the Making. I share crafts, recipes, kid-friendly ideas, DIY projects, party planning, mom fashion, printables, and more over in my tiny corner of the blogging world. If I’m not knee deep in three projects and homeschooling, you’ll find me designing wooden signs for my shop while binge watching Netflix or daydreaming of our family’s next adventure. I am so excited to be here today… I just adore Vanessa and Halloween, so I seem to be in the right place!

Today I am going to share one of my favoritest ever Halloween projects with you… my Front Door Halloween Hoop Art! I needed a new Halloween wreath for my front door and after a few days of brainstorming, I came up with the perfect idea! I picked out some pretty Halloween fabric at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores and couldn’t wait to get started.

Are you as in love with hoop art as I am? It’s such a fun and easy way to decorate…I have several “hoop art walls” in my home. I thought creating one for the front door with a Halloween vibe would be so fun! 


1/2 yd of Halloween fabric

1/4 yr of a complementing Halloween fabric

Iron on glitter vinyl

12 inch hoop


Hot glue gun and sticks

Silhouette (optional)


*I bought all of my crafting supplies at JoAnn.

First you want to take the outer hoop off of the embroidery hoop. Cut the 1/4 yd of fabric in 2 inch wide strips. Wrap the outer hoop with the strips of fabric, overlapping a bit so the hoop doesn’t peek out. I left the ends long at the top of the hoop so I can tie it in a bow later. 

Using your 1/2 yd fabric, stretch and cover the inner embroider hoop and slip the outer embroidery hoop over the top. Tighten the outer embroidery hoop and make sure all the fabric is pulled tight. 

Hot glue the fabric around the inside of the hoop to secure. Trim off excess fabric carefully with scissors.

Cut out the word “BOO” from your iron on vinyl (be sure to read the directions to your iron on vinyl). I used my Silhouette cutting machine for this but you could easily trace or free hand the word and cut it out. 

Following the directions on your vinyl, iron “BOO” onto the center of your hoop.

Tie the pieces of fabric at the top of your hoop into a bow. 

Add any other embellishments you want. 

Hang your hoop art on your front door!

I love the combination of polka dots, plaid, and glitter! I think it all works so well together.

Have you decorated your front door for Halloween yet? I just LOVE this time of year!

Thanks for letting me pop on by today! I’d love to have you over at Mine for the Making for more Halloween and Fall inspired projects!
