Trick or Treat Wreath

Just a few more hours to enter my Bertolli Meals giveaway

My Halloween wreath last year was awful.


This year, I was determined not to let that catastrophe happen  again.

I was inspired by this wreath from Pandora's Craft Box. Isn't it amazing??

And as luck would have it, the only item I had on hand to totally copy it was... a foam wreath. And even then, I had to dismantle another wreath to get at it.

First, I wrapped wire ribbon from the old wreath around the foam.

I didn't have ready made flowers, but decided fabric rosettes would be perfect. I found spooky mesh at the dollar store and a great spider.



Everything is adhered with my trusty hot glue gun.

Still, it was missing something. . .

I found a oval piece of crafty wood and painted it purple. . . And it was clearly time to bust out the scrapbooking supplies I've been hoarding saving for a rainy day.

I seem to use my scrapbooking supplies for everything except scrapping these days!

And...

Ta Da!


Much more awesome looking wreath than last year.

Of course, I keep seeing the plaque in the middle as a giant Halloweeny Easter Egg.
