Halloween Wreaths

Postby amandap80 » Mon Oct 10, 2011 10:34 am

Anyone else out there a fan of wreaths? I love making them! Here is my latest creation for craft fairs:

I do lots of work with florals for halloween and fall, especially with owls and crows. This one didn't sell unfortunately, so I just may have to display it on my door :P
Whenever I have to urge to run through my yard naked, I drink some Windex. It keeps me from streaking.

I've seen a few autumn wreaths in my neighborhood, but they're not Halloween-y enough for me. They need a bigger dose of pumpkins, owls, or crows. So you have the right idea!

Love it! I like doing crafts like that. I do have a wreath on my door but it is more of a general fall theme instead of Halloween. I usually keep it out through Thanksgiving.

I made one last year... It's a grapevine wreath, and I put a spider web in the middle with a little plastic spider. I put a small crow on top, and hooked garlic on the bottom. I'm pretty proud of it... I'll try to take a picture to post soon.

I had a fall wreath on my door from about the end of August, but I took it down last week and switched it out for a Halloween wreath (which I made while watching Addams Family).

Took it with my phone, so it's not the best picture, but you get the idea. I had wanted to spray paint the wreath black, but I live in a dorm and decided it probably wasn't the best of ideas.

Not terribly long, maybe 2 hours.
