Are you ready for Halloween? I sure am! It is one of my family’s favourite holidays. My kids have been begging me for about 2 weeks to get out the Halloween decorations, and get started on their costumes. To get you all into the “Halloween Spirit” I thought I’d share an easy but cute Halloween home décor project with you this month. It’s kind of similar to the spring wreath I shared with you in March, but even easier!
Here’s what you need:
1. foam or wood wreath base (10-12” in diameter—check the floral dept of your local craft store)
2. Patterned papers punched into large circles and/or scalloped circles
3. Several coordinating journaling spots/die cuts
4. 2 feet of ribbon (divided in half)
5. 5 large black buttons
6. Black twine or embroidery floss
7. Dimensional foam adhesive
8. Craft glue
Here’s what you do:
Glue ends of ribbon to top front of wreath base about 4 inches apart. Allow to dry.
Layer journaling spots, die cuts, and punched scalloped circles on wreath base using dimensional foam adhesive on some to add dimension. Tip: I put one foam square on some die cuts, and stacked two on top of each other on some other die cuts to get even more dimension.
Tie the two ribbons together in a bow for hanging the wreath. You can also dovetail the ends of the ribbon to keep them from fraying.
Thread black twine or embroidery floss through large black buttons to make spiders. Tip: I didn’t have any large black buttons on hand, but I did have some black acrylic paint and large brown buttons—voila!
Hope you’ve enjoyed this fun and easy project. Give it a try and be sure to post a link in your comment if you do. Happy Halloween!
