I know it's not even October yet, but I thought I would get a head start on a little Halloween decor.
I just love Halloween. It's not necessarily the costumes or candy or spooks. I think it's just because my birthday is the day before Halloween, and I associate all things Halloween with the happy memories of my past birthdays. As soon as I start seeing black witch hats, orange pumpkins, candy corn, costumes, spooky spiders, and ghosts, I know that something fun is coming for my birthday.
Anyhoo... I made a Halloween wreath that I thought I'd share with you guys. (Plus, I thought I'd show you how I made it.)
Here it is...
I started out with a few supplies.
(I didn't use everything pictured because the wreath sort of evolved as I worked.)
You'll need a wreath form, orange yarn, black yarn, black ribbon,black glitter foam, and some little foam Halloween decorations (bought or make them yourself).
Start by wrapping the wreath form with orange yarn.
Then hot glue some pieces of black yarn across the wreath, making sure all lines intersect at one point. Create the web by tying another piece of black yarn to the center and working your way around, tying to each strand along the way.
Create a bow out of the black ribbon, and hot glue it on, cut out and glue your foam letters, and add your foam ghosts and bats. Viola! You have a super snazzy Halloween wreath!
Hope you guys like it!
