It’s official! We have Halloween decor! I got the idea from this super creepy wreath in the October issue of This Old House magazine. I had wreaths that I bought a few years ago with the intention of covering them with yarn and giving them as Christmas gifts but, after doing one for myself during a craft party, I wasn’t about to do two more. They are a ton of work! At least they are for me. I saw this creepy one and wanted to give it a try. I had no idea I would love the way it turned out as much as I do.
I used black duct tape to cover the straw circle because I wanted to give it an edgier look. With the right circle, you could spray paint it black and use more of the zip ties to cover it.
I am not a glitter person but I thought it would need something a little sparkly to break up the harsh black. It’s just the right amount. I used fishing wire to hang the letters to make them look like their floating in midair. I drilled very tiny holes into the letters to string it through.
I think the zip ties give it a Hellraiser creepiness to it without being over the top. The crow just ties it all together.
For some indoor decor, these super
cute spooky ghost candles are perfect! I used white tissue paper, black construction paper, and Mod Podge.
Keeping the threading on the top uncovered, I was thinking we could replace the candle with a glow stick, cover them, and put them on our porch during trick-or-treating.
