For the first time EVER, I’ve made a Halloween wreath that isn’t of the cutesy, sparkly variety! It has bones. It has spiders. It has moss, webs, and twigs. There isn’t anything orange or purple or pink or any other bright color on it. At all. It’s a first for me. I kinda like it! It matches well with the brick and stone exterior of our house, an unplanned bonus! It’s a mossy skeleton wreath!
Here it is: (click on photo to enlarge!)
The supplies were simple enough: (around $20 and around 20 minutes) a $5 grapevine wreath, bag of bones from WalMart for $9.97, Spanish moss for $4 from Hobby Lobby, burlap ribbon for $1.99 from Hobby Lobby, artificial spiders, craft letters leftover from another project, hot glue. (see next photo)
The details: (click on photo to enlarge)
So, there it is in all its glory, my first non-cute “scary style” Halloween wreath!
It’s already hanging on our haunted house!
