I found a white branch wreath at a garage sale for $3. It was perfect - but it was white. Spray paint to the rescue. I painted it black, along with some artificial flowers I had on hand, and started creating my wreath with my trusty glue gun. (I had finally found my much-loved original glue gun packed away in the very last box we hadn't unpacked from our move. It had been labeled "board games" by the movers. Thanks movers! I would never have thought to look for my glue gun in there. Humph.) I rounded out the wreath by adding lights, an EEK! glitter sign, a spider web and a big orange spider. All these items were in my Halloween stash just waiting for the right project.
And here it is, hanging in our foyer with the shabby window frames as a backdrop.
The cat and mouse wall decals were another item I had in my Halloween stash from Target's clearance last year. Just a fun touch.
That orange spider on top is very fun - my favorite part, I think.
The wreath came together so fun. My boys love how spooky it is, especially at night.
Our foyer is looking very much like Halloween now. My favorite holiday!
Thanks for looking!
Update - I was featured on One Tough Mother's Not So Tough Tuesday Linky Party. I'm honored! You can check it out here...
