I went with a classic Freddy Krueger Halloween wreath, complete with the striped shirt, for our all things Halloween Movie Monday Challenge.

This month’s challenge was. . . . HALLOWEEN!!!! Everyone was allowed to choose their own favorite Halloween-themed film for this challenge.  

I made a Freddy Krueger Halloween wreath.  Let me tell you, just looking at photos of Freddy brought me right back to the 10th grade when I saw this at the theater with my then boyfriend.

I swear I had nightmares for weeks! I guess that is a sign of a good Halloween movie right? Eek-look how scary he is!!

This came at the perfect time as my daughter asked me if I could make a Halloween wreath for her apartment front door.

She didn’t want something fall, but rather something scary and I think this fits the bill.

She loves the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, as do her room mates, so they were excited when I told them that a Freddy inspired wreath would be hanging on their door!

Here is the finished project and then I’ll share how I made it.

I was really trying to come up with knives for the fingers, but I wanted to keep costs down, so I went with the skeleton hands.

It does give the effect I was going for and definitely is Freddy inspired with the red and green sweater and fedora.

I didn’t use the Freddy doll shown in this picture. It was too small for the wreath.

First, cut strips of felt in alternating red and green to represent Freddy’s sweater.

Then add hot glue to each end overlapping the colors until the wreath is covered.

As the brim of the cowboy hat was too big, I just cut it down to look more like a fedora.

For the sign, I just gave it a wash with dark wax and used a Sharpie Paint Pen to write Elm Street.

I covered the wire wreath with the black and orange mesh then used twine to attach the smaller red and green felt covered wreath to the center.

The hands and sign were then added also using twine. The fedora was simply placed on top with hot glue. As it is foam it is not heavy at all so it seems pretty secure.
