I think I have decided that some people are scary-Halloween people---and some aren't. We are in the aren'ts category. I took our youngest who is 2 into a display store last week to get some grid-wall pegs and he started freaking out over all the life-sized witches and crows and bubbling cauldrons that were EVERYWHERE. I ended up carrying him on my shoulder with his head buried in my neck and every time he would peek out he would say...."Let's get out of here."
I have to admit...they were pretty creepy. And I don't like to be scared. Not. One. Bit.
So, with that little fact about our family....a cute Halloween wreath was in order this year.
And not a scary one.
If you want to make the same Halloween wreath (or Fall colors would work great too), here is what I did......
I bought an 18" wreath form at Hobby Lobby (with a coupon....who knew styrofoam wreath forms were close to $13 dollars?), a spool of wide ribbon, and a yard of muslin.
I ripped the muslin into 2 inch strips and wrapped the wreath form in it.
I then made the flowers like I showed HERE...and glued those on where the seams of the muslin met. (The pom poms are vintage and HUGE, which I love....but I am not sure you can buy pom poms that big?)
I then added the ribbon and a bow at the top and called it good.
The total was about $13 dollars total, but if you use a smaller wreath form you could get it down a bit. I just really like a big wreath on a front door.
