Melissa, over at Huckleberry Prairie blogged about the most adorable Halloween Hoedown Wreath and then was nice enough to provide a tutorial. My Mom and I decided to give it a go. Check out our end product!
Isn't it gorgeous? We were thrilled with how they came out. We opted not to go with a Halloween theme so that we could leave it up until after Thanksgiving. We each made one as well as one for my Grandmother and her friend. They were so easy to make and a lot of fun. If you love the look then you should try it for yourself! I promise you will love the results.
I have also seen a lot of bloggers out there grabbing a can of black spray paint and going to town on Halloween decor. I decided to try this trend as well. What do you think?
I scavenged through the woods behind my house to find the perfect sticks, which I then spray painted black. I stuffed them into a vase full of candy corn, tied some ribbons on the branches and covered the whole thing in cobwebs. I also painted "BOO" on my little pumpkins. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I think that next year I will add some more items to my mantle, but for now it's just fine.
I also painted our street number on a pumpkin in front of our house.
I have been having fun! I am already gathering my supply list to tackle some crafty Christmas projects too!
