Halloween Wreath

The ‘witching hour’ is almost nigh. . .

Soon, yes very soon; the crow will caw. . .

And the bats will fly!

Little goblins that look so sweet. . .

Will soon be saying, “Trick or Treat”!

Sweet goodies they will gladly take. . .

Chocolate, gummies, even a cupcake.

 

I made my fun Halloween wreath at a workshop held at my hairdressers salon.

It was a fun ‘girls night out’.  We were served delicious bread and soup while we enjoyed a night of visiting and creating.

We pinned layers of paper, coffee filters, tissue, and paper doilies onto a straw wreath. (Tip:  wrap the wreath with tuelle so it won’t be so messy)   This created the base.

Then we made and tucked in black and orange tissue paper flowers and other fun objects.  Last of all we added tuelle, burlap, and cute fabric strips.

Perfect Halloween addition to my chippy green door!

Less than a week a way until the fun day!

Great project Jann! And it looks like a reasonable low cost one to make. Love the bat and crow stuck in there.

You've got a little bit of everything tucked into your wreath, Jann! Is that an eye of newt I see? hehe

I found a very similar beadboard door and I can't wait to hang a wreath on it....as soon as I find a place to hang it! Happy Halloween!

Debbie Lynne Malison said...

That is a major wreath! How fun to get together like that. My favorite thing is the old picture of the little boy and girl!! Love it!

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

That's a perfect wreath! The colours are traditional and the textures make it very intersting. You were truly inspired.

Art and Sand said...

What a fun wreath. I have done no Halloween decor - just kept it simple with fall - but maybe I will do something fun to decorate for the next 4 days until Halloween.

Julie Marie said...

What a sweet little tale this was! The photos are perfect with every line.

Nancy said...

I get my Halloween fix right here at your blog, Jann. So much fun. I really love that vintage Halloween card. So sweet.

Lulu said...

Now this wreath is something I would very much like to make. Such a fun idea, and with the paper flowers, I see that it would have to hang inside.

Diane Writes said...

Hi Jann! Been a while since I last visited your blog :( I've been very busy with work lately to the extent that I don't often had the chance to visit other bloggy friends.

What a unique and cute wreath. I like it! Your creativity never fails to inspire me.

Have a great week!
