If you read this blog often, then you know two things – I love Halloween and I love wreaths. I find that every year I get more and more into Halloween, and I’scared m, I’m one of those people who draw on this dependence shows.
you’ll find a lady with glasses, a pug and bat wings in “my special space” filled with purple and orange crap. But you know what? I’ll be happy – that is how much I love Halloween.
Anyhoo, before we go down this path, let me show you, this vintage-DIY Halloween wreath that I made! I took a different route, the combination of vintage paper with circles and a couple of dollars article. Honestly? I raided my stash for this.
I had everything on hand. So, before you buy anything, check out of your hiding place! Here’s how I create this Halloween wreath.

color of your floral craft ring with Pure Black. You should give some of the layers on the front and back and allow it to dry.
Then do the same thing with the Extreme glitter in Black, let it dry between the layers. Allow it to dry.
Trace your wood circles on the back of your scrapbook paper. Cut them and set them aside. If you are really keen like me, you’ll use a yellow crayon (or if you can’t nothing else to find). After tracing the circles of scrapbook paper, paint it with Pure Black and drylet.br> Mod conglomeration of the paper on the front of the circles and flatten. Let it dry for 15 to 20 minutes. You give the circles a couple of layers of Mod-hodgepodge on both sides. Dry circles set aside and the Mod Podged.
Now you are going to your small skulligan frame. You take the skeleton and cut out the back of the head. You can do this with the cutter or scissors. Trim so that it is even on both sides and then paint with Pure Black.
Remove the back of the decorative frame. Cut a piece of scrapbook paper in the picture. Replace the back and set them aside.

room, the circles and the decorative frame around the floral ring – you can see the finished photo of my DIY Halloween wreath, like I did). Tie a ribbon to the back, at the top through one of the holes, then glue the circles and the frame to the bottom. Let it air dry. You're almost done!
To finish it, glue the spider down with craft glue. If your spiders are not shone pre -, add glitter as you with the skull. Hang your wreath and enjoy.
