Easy enough I thought, I think I'll make two I thought.
Four or five hours later and 4 glue sticks, 600 little scalloped circles, and a very tired hand later I was finished with the main wreath. I added the black paper rose just because I had it lying around (another pinterest tutorial I had tried). And I made the web with the hot glue on some wax paper- I just cut away the wax paper when the glue dried. The cute little spider is made of beads and was part of a bead necklace I had for a Halloween candle- from back in the day when I sold candles...

The Graphics Fairy website. I love that site. AND I love Halloween. So I printed out a few of the Halloween images I loved and set to work. For two of the pieces I hand-painted the art using the picture as a guide and for the framed piece I just printed out the graphic, Mod Podged it to a canvas I painted orange and then framed it using some left over molding and my miter saw. I painted the molding black before attaching it to the canvas. I just glued it on using silicon glue against the canvas and wood glue at the mitered corners. I did fill the cracks with some wood putty and then painted over it, but it wasn't really that necessary. I love how they turned out, my mother-in-law wants to buy them from me and my five year old daughter said it looks like a "real artist" made them. Thanks, I think.?
