Around this time of year every home should have a garlic wreath to make sure no vampires can enter and drain your family’s blood.  We can’t have that.  Plus it makes an awesome Halloween decoration.  This wreath was very easy to make, using only garlic cloves, a straw wreath form, raffia for the bow, and greening pins from Michaels.

Purchase a small-ish size straw wreath.  The one I chose had space for 9 garlic cloves.   I bought Ashland greening pins to stick through the garlic, into the straw.  I tied a simple raffia bow at the bottom, attached wire at the top for hanging, and that’s all there is to it.  Nothing could be simpler, and isn’t it important to keep your family safe during Halloween?
