Halloween Wreath

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Thursday, October 20, 2011

I wanted to share with you a wreath that I made for our front door for Halloween today!

Recently, my Mom, daughter and I joined a group of girlfriends for a weekend at the beach.  Each of us brought a craft project to teach during the weekend, and this was what I taught.

I found the idea for this fun wreath at Pinterest (I'm a PROUD Pinterest addict!) and I adapted it just a little bit to fit my style.

The original just had letters that spelled out "BOO", but I used a big fancy bow and fun wooden halloween decorations instead.
I used a simple 13" wreath from the $1 store and spray painted it black before tying on the burlap strips.

We had 2 little girls (age 6 & 7) with us at the beach, so I brought 2 smaller 9" wreaths for them.  This is the one that my Emily made for her bedroom door.

As you can see, I had different types of ribbon for everyone to choose from, and different decorations, too!  Emily loved the skeleton!  The glittery spiders were lots of fun, too and I decided to add one to my ribbon after I took my picture.

I used to make a lot of wreaths and I think I'll get back into that hobby.  I would love to have a new wreath to display for each holiday.  I already have an idea for a Thanksgiving wreath that I am hoping to work on this weekend...
