Easy Decorating… a Halloween Wreath

[Click on any photo for a larger view]

In October, you may have noticed these very open, spiky, textured wreaths  in the boutiques and craft stores (I found mine at http://www.terrysvillage.com).  They look great displayed on their own, for Halloween, but I also want to show you a few more easy decorating ideas to try:

First, you could simply add a bow (check out my SHOP! and holiday decorating DVD for super simple, designer bow-making instructions, like those shown in this post… using a lasagna box).  And before you hang it up, suspend a Halloween decoration first, to line-up with the wreath’s center.

You might also consider looking for super-sized wiggle eyes,   in a craft store, and hot gluing them (individually or in pairs) to a few of the wreath branches, spaced evenly apart.

From year to year, you can change the ribbon combinations and maybe add a painted die-cut wood ghost or clip-on accessories like these glitzy spiders, and possibly add a theme-coordinated saying in the center…. wherever your mood takes your creativity! (see below)

Enjoy the Creativity!
