Bandage it

We love this mummy-inspired wreath by The Chic-Adee Shop. To get the look, purchase a straw wreath form from your local arts and crafts store, and wrap with cheese cloth. Then tie with black ribbon and add mini hanging decorations such as spiders, bats, or mummy hands, which can be found at most dollar stores.
