My Halloween Wreath

I've linked up with Kristen's Works For Me Wednesday. Be sure to stop by and see all the great things she has going on!

Like every good crafter I snuck a few minutes in my craft room to throw together a Halloween wreath. I love my craft room with its stainless steel counters and extra helpers ready at my bark er beck and call....

Yeah, so. I made the wreath on my bed. Yes, that is a cookie sheet. But oh to be a gal with a crafts room one day. Anywho - Max was incredibly helpful as he walked around the bed wondering what Mom was doing. The little plastic spiders I had laid out kept clinging to his feet and was beyond funny. Do you think Martha has to deal with this kinda stuff?

I really wanted to make a snake wreath that I had seen in a few other blogs but I wasn't able to find any snakes. I did find flies and roaches though so that is what I went with. They don't photograph well but look great regardless. To help make them standout against the black wreath I glued the bugs to some of the shiny ornamental balls that I purchased at Michael's for 50% off. Michael's also had their black wreaths on sale for $3.99 this week.

I have read a few tutorials on using ping pong balls to make scarey eyeballs but I had these left over party favors I bought a few years ago and they worked out great. I just popped the eyeball part out of the frame and hot glued them on the wreath.

I just love the way it looks! And the total cost was $4.99 plus left over burlap scraps for the bow - and That Works For Me!

This handsome fellow is just hanging around...get it? Hanging. I crack myself up sometimes. So what have you been up to?



What sort of wreath do you put up for Veterans Day or Columbus Day?
