(I am repeating this post for make you monday over on Twice Remembered and DIY show-offs Fall Festival #4)
and again for Southern Hospitality (fall decor)
Last Halloween, my mom made the cutest Halloween wreaths...
I decided to scale mine down a bit...but I had to have one!
I already had the excelsior, wood stars, fabric, light bulbs, vinyl and paint. I bought 2 wreaths, 2 wood plaques, a packet of sparkly bats and the 1 picket fence (cut in half)...I think I spent a total of $6 per wreath...not too bad.
Each ghost got a funny unique face after a coat of white paint (this was a total pain and next time I will figure out a way to spray paint them). I used a paint pen for all the black then filled in the blue eyes and stippled the pink cheeks.
Each wreath got half a picket fence, a sparkly bat, yellow sparkly stars and a sign with vinyl letters cut on the cricut.
The ghosts were then hot glued into the wreath after they got some fabric around them and the wreath is hung on an inside door with black polka dotted ribbon.
I made an extra for my mother-in-law as a gift for watching Lil D next week while Mr. Thompson and I sneak away (shhhh...don't tell her, it's a surprise)!
