This is another wreath that took several tries to get it right.  At first I wanted to make a tulle wreath like this one, but it was such a craft fail.  I used black, green, purple and orange tulle.  It looked like the circus vomited on my door.  I took all the tulle and made four little Halloween tutus for my four little girls.  Waste not, right?
I decided I needed to stick with the classic orange black and white. I started over again on my wreath. I stopped at Michael’s (“Mom, do we have to?”) when I was out grocery shopping and got a grapevine wreath.  I sprayed that puppy black. Then I added a orange glitter spider from the target dollar spot.

I had this little spooky sign I got from Target (the day after Halloween) for 50 cents a few years ago and never found a good spot for it.  It was the perfect size but the letters kind of disappeared on my dark door.  So when I was at Hobby Lobby, (“This is not my favorite store, Mom.”) I couldn’t find any striped or chevron orange and white paper, which is what I really wanted.  It all had black in it, which I thought would make it hard to read the letters. So I found this orange and white damask and went with that.  I hot glued the paper to the back, trimmed the excess paper off and hung it on the wreath. 

 I loved the flowers on the our best bites wreath, so I grabbed the orange glitter leaves (while I was buying the wreath at Michael’s) on clearance for $3.00.  I made a few flowers with fabric I already had and I also stuck on these 10 cent zebra stripe flowers from Hobby Lobby’s summer clearance.  A few sprigs of tulle tucked here and there and it was done!
I love it!  It’s worth it to keep going until you get it right! 🙂
