make a black wreath.

For Halloween, your front porch will be the first thing that people notice while they are trick-or-treating. When those kids come up to knock on the door, have the door look festive with a spooky black wreath! :) For our door, we bought the 4-dollar black wreath at Michael's and tied a big orange bow on it.. so cute! And it immediately made our front yard look like it was in the spirit of Halloween! While our wreath was super easy and effective, here are two other variations on the black Halloween wreath that I absolutely adore...
Martha, you've done it again and wowed me! I am in love with this wreath. Using silk roses hot glued onto a Styrofoam wreath form, the entire thing is then spray painted black to give it a gothic feel. Tie it up with a big black ribbon and it is perfection! :) And of course, what a way to re-use those old silk flowers you probably have laying around somewhere, right?!
I found this amazing black wreath here. Scroll down about halfway down the page to get the instructions, but the basic idea is super simple. You take a Styrofoam wreath shape and literally tie a bunch of black grosgrain ribbon all around it to form this cute wreath, perfect for Halloween!!
Tomorrow, I will be posting about a few cute kids crafts for the week of Halloween.... very simple, yet so fun for any age! :) xo!
