Halloween Wreath

Hi friends, happy Thursday!
I've been working on my lactation recertification this week.
But, I do have a crafty creation that I wanted to share with you.
Several weeks ago my friend told me about the Halloween wreath she was making and because she's cool like that, I decided to make one too. ;>
Here's the 411:
First, purchase a floral wire wreath and a couple of yards of Halloween fabric/ribbons.

Second, cut your fabric into strips with pinking shears.
I'm a lazy crafter so I folded my fabric and cut it all in one section.

Helpful hint:
Make sure to cut your strips about 6 inches long.
I tried it with shorter strips and it was just too hard to tie.

Now, take your 6 inch strips and tie them on.
Because I'm slightly OCD I chose to tie mine in a repeating pattern.

I tied the first strip around the bottom two wires, the second strip around the top two wires and tied the third strip around the middle two wires.
Then I swapped to a new fabric started again.
I also went back in and added strips of ribbon and black toile.

This is how the wreath looked once all the strips were in place.

Last but not least, here's the wreath with a little added bling!

So, do tell, what do you think?
I love hearing your feedback!
God's blessings on your day, Sarah :D

Yes, I am cool like that. I think your wreath is "Boo-tiful". I was starting to wonder what had happened to you this week. I LOVE IT and am glad to have my friend back in blog land.

I LOVE IT!! I have actually had the wire wreath and fabric for a few months to do a college themed one. I just can't find the time. I need to just do it. Love your blog.
