So the crafting gods took over me this weekend and I channeled my inner Martha by making, what I think is, the cutest Halloween wreath! Since I have the shortest attention span ever, instead of wrapping my wreath form with yarn, like a lot of other people do, I opted for ribbon – ribbon covers a larger surface = faster wreath making haha. I started off by pinning down my ribbon with dressmakers pins we had around the house. Then, I just continued to wrap the ribbon around.
Since the ribbon came in rolls 3 yards long, I had to buy two and join them half way through my wreath form. I wanted this to be as seamless as possible so I used the seamstress pins again. I lined up the start of the second roll, pinned it (and the very end of the first roll) down and then flipped it over the pins so they’d be hidden and then continued wrapping the ribbon around.
Once I got done wrapping the ribbon around, I grabbed a sheet of white foam and free handed a little ghost dude. Cut him up some eyes from some old construction paper I had and then I hot glued him onto the wreath. Then, I hot glued the black letters onto the wreath and voila! ~30 minutes later I got me a cute little Halloween ghost wreath!
I’m really happy with how it turned out! I think it’s freakin’ adorable, I wanted something simple and halloween-y and I think this fits the bill perfectly. Bonus points because it was super easy since I decided to use ribbon instead of yarn and it was fairly inexpensive as well – $4.20 for the wreath form/foam at Michael’s (I had a 40% off coupon on my phone), 90 cents for the foam/ghost, $1 for each of the letters, and $8 total for the ribbon for a total of $16.10! #win. Now I’m all riled up for wreath and have been pinning all sorts of wreath I want to make, lord help me haha.
