With dozens of neighborhood kids (and their watchful parents) visiting your home to trick-or-treat in a few weeks, the best place to get festive is on your front door. Mae Armstrong created this super chic wreath – perfect to dress up your home this holiday.
Start with a foam wreath and wrap yarn around it. Mae used orange yarn as the base color first, then added black to create stripes around it. To create the shapes for the banner and decorative and circle tags, Mae used her Silhouette SD. Then she used the PSA Romance Peel and Stick stamp set to spell "B-O-O" and then used decorative tape on top for the banner. To get the effect she did, punch each corner and thread the natural twine through the holes. Attach to your wreath and glue ends.
For the spider accent, Mae used Skelanimals Thomas & Friends Peel and Stick stamps. Then she used her pre-cut scallop tags and stamped the spider right in the middle. Then she also trimmed a 1" strip of Halloween theme pattern paper and used her Scor-Pal to add the crease for a star-burst layer. Glue ends of the strip and attach scalloped piece right on top.
This wreath is sure to be one to save and bring out each year! What another impressive project, Mae.
