Yet Another Halloween Wreath

When I was cleaning last week, I found some frames with no glass and decided to find a way to reuse them. Because we all know I just can't throw anything away...

I dug through my big box of Halloween junk, checked Pinterest, and then headed to the store for just a teeny tiny bit of fabric.

I swear. I only bought half a yard.

First, I tore the fabric in to strips and wrapped them around the smaller frame. Then, began gluing on assorted creepy the one legged raven, after I amputated removed the leg. Like I said, I have trouble throwing things away.

Added some black roses from the dollar store and a little creepy crawler...

Ta Da!

 A little creepy crawly tucked up in the flowers...

This project cost me less than $2 to make since I had everything (except the fabric) on hand from other projects.

I had enough left over to do one more fun Halloween "recycle" project... But you'll have to come back later for that one :)

Speaking of coming back later...Next week's featured Iron Chef Mom ingredient is CHOCOLATE! So start thinking of your favorite chocolate recipes...

  1. Oh, I love making these kind of "wreaths". I did a whole bunch of them in the Spring. It feels great to reuse these old frames, doesn't it? Your wreath came out great, too. Best wishes, Linda

  2. What a great idea to use the picture frame :) Love it!

  3. Very cute! I could probably make a wreath every week, but I don't think my hubby would appreciate it! :o)
