A Very Scary Wreath

I made this wreath using THIS tutorial.
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...

After all that I decided to make just one wreath.  I have mixed feelings about selling this one.  I love it, and I hope it doesn't sell so that I can hang it up at my house!


  1. Why don't I check your blog more often??? Can we be friends??? I love your style. I so wish I knew how to sew more then a straight line!!! Everything looks fabulous!

  2. Thanks Tricia! I don't post very often...so it helps if you only check once in a while, then you won't be disappointed- ;)

  3. I made one, too. I spray painted a grapevine wreath black and then put spider web stuff all over it. I plan on taking pictures of all our Halloween decorations soon. Love you and miss you!
