Unlike Shellie’s wreath, Ashlie made hers instead of repurposing something she already had (she likes to make things difficult). Saying “homemade” seems intimidating, but this was super simple and fun. In fact, a 2 year old helped with the creation.
She took a styrofoam wreath and wrapped it with burlap. Any type of material will do if you don’t have burlap on hand. A glue gun was used to attach the burlap to the wreath.
The flowers were very easy to make and there are tutorials all over blog-land and Pinterest on how to make these specific flowers. We wish we could take credit for coming up with them, but sadly we aren’t that talented. Large circles of different sizes were cut out and burnt around the edges with a lighter to make them crinkle and give them a dark edge. Then they were layered together to make them resemble flowers. Large ivory buttons were used in the center of the flowers and then grass was glued in-between the flowers to add more texture.
The Happy Halloween sign was purchased at a local home décor store.
A ribbon was then used to attach the wreath to the door. This wreath needed to be very simple with everything else that is going on around the door. Can’t wait to share the rest of the porch with you. It turned out so much fun! The kids in the neighborhood love to stop and look at all of the “spooky” Halloween decorations.
