First start with this:
I could have spray painted it black but spray paint was $7 at Michaels so I opted for the $2 black yarn that was in the clearance bin. Yes, it was time consuming but totally worth the $5 in savings- plus the styrofoam won't show. Wrap yarn around the wreath- this took me a good hour but I did it while watching Bones. It got me in the spooooooky mood....haha:
It doesn't have to be 'perfect' because the flowers, etc will cover it.
The 'STASH' of goodies I intend to use: (black flowers, pumpkins, spiders, skeletons.) Everything was about $7.
Next grab your flowers and start plugging them in....figure out where you want them. My flowers are black with a metallic purple and silver. I know the picture quality
is great stinks - Please click on the imagine to view them better. This is what mine looked like when completed- I used a hot glue gun for the skeletons, pumpkins and spider:
Pumpkins and Skeletons
Well, this is my SPOOKY wreath! It was about $15 to make this- which I think beats the $29.99 that I was seeing in stores, plus it's homemade :) We'll have this for years! The frame I made (see THIS POST) is now on the wall and this hangs on our door! Hope you like it! What have you made? Leave me a comment! I'd love to check it out :) Come back tomorrow to see what I did with my leftovers! Yes! I had leftovers!!!
