I love wreaths, as I suppose any Pinterest-loving crafter does, so this is my first stab at my "Wreath of the Month." Every last Thursday (or so) of the month, I will be posting a DIY wreath. Ta da! I'm so excited. So for those of you, like me who get sick of decorations fast, can at least enjoy a flare of change at least once a month.
First off, if you haven't gone to JoAnn's in a while.....NOW IS THE TIME. Best deals right before Halloween, especially for fabic. And also Target's "Spot on the Dot" has great $1-$3 Halloween decor.
Everything I bought for the wreath I found at JoAnn's. I'm a fan of anything big and sparkly, hence the boa.
With one yard of the Tulle and 2 yards of the orange netting, my total came to $15.75. Not bad!
I prefer my strips to be chunky, then I layered them for more volume
Most people use pipe cleaners to tie the fabric to the wire frame. I just used black yarn that I found lying around the house. A little more time consuming but saved me a couple of bucks :)
I did the orange first, and then implemented the black into the wreath.
I saved extra ribbon to hang the wreath. And here's the finished product:
As I said before...I LOVE Halloween!
