A Simple Halloween Wreath-I Mean Really Simple!

                      Fast and Easy Wreath? This one's for you!!                             

This wreath is so easy and you can use any seasonal papers to make it.

I started with a Scaredy Cat paper packet (X7185B) $9.95 and 1 sheet of silver Glitter Paper from the Black & Gray pack (Z1829) $5.95.

                                          Materials and Tips:                                                   

  • 4- sheets of paper (your choice).
  • 1- 12" foam wreath ring.
  • Cut all papers into 2"x12" strips.
  • Holding the ends together, cut a shallow triangle from the 2 ends at the same time.
  • Using an adhesive (I use Tombow) and a couple of drops of a very permanent glue (I use Liquid Glass (z679) $6.95-it doesn't let go but it needs about 20 minutes to dry).
  • Match the cut ends together and press. 
  • Alternate the strips.
  • I cut a 4" spider and a 5" bat from my Artbooking Cricut cartridge (Z1906) $99. Images found on pages 70 and 71. I added red sparkles for eyes and a purple ribbon for hanging. 

Starting to adhere the strips around the ring.

All the strips are in place.


                                4 Reasons why I like this project                                      

  • I had a lot of fun doing this easy decoration. 
  • I don't have to store anything big and cumbersome. 
  • I'll cut the paper off after Halloween and use the foam ring for my next seasonal wreath. 
  • This is a great way to decorate using extra or leftover papers, ribbons and sparkles from your stash of stuff.

Thanks for looking!!
