Chic Halloween

Oh my gosh ~~

Has it been 2 weeks since my last post? Shame on me.  Oh boy, I have been busy though.....but...

Enough on that.
How about a Fall wreath project?

I made this wreath last year and just loved it!  It is a take off of a Martha Stewart wreath project and I loved the idea of prettying up Halloween and All Souls Day (The day to remember our dearly departed).  It is SO simple but I love the dramatic effect that is the result.

This wreath is simply a large plywood wreath frame that you can get at any craft store.  You will also need silk red roses (about 24 ~ 30 large) a glue gun and floral spray paint in black.   You will take just the rose heads off of the silk stems, glue to the wreath frame in an attractive arrangement and let dry.  Hang outside and spray with floral paint.  You can put as many coats of paint on as you wish, but a little red peeking through makes for a great effect. 

Wha~la! You have a beautiful new wreath for your Fall door. :)

I hope you are having a busy fun Fall and creating up a storm!

See you soon.....
