As my sweet loving hubby would say "Easy & Cheap, just like you!" Yes he thinks he's a comedian! But he always makes us laugh!
I've been drooling over all the lovely burlap creations on Pinterest lately and I finally picked some up this weekend at Hobby Lobby.
Here's the How To on this SUPER EASY HALLOWEEN WREATH -
1. $ store pool noodle - join ends with duct tape
2. 1/2 yard burlap - cut 2 1/2" strips and wrap around wreath securing with hot glue.
3. $ store spider web - secure with thread to top and bottom of wreath and stabilize with hot glue
4. $ store ribbon - make bow and glue on to wreath
5. $ store spiders - glue on
Total cost was less than $7 and if I wasn't so lazy I probably could have made the spider web with yarn and saved a buck, but that just seems like too much work!!!
I made this to go on top of this giant framed medallion over our fireplace and used a small command adhesive hook to hang it on top of the glass.
Sorry for the crummy picture - cannot figure out how to shoot this without the glare.
It looks so much better than what you see here. Once I've got the mantel decorated, I'll try to snap a better shot, but I think you get the drift. I took this picture standing on a stool making it look off center, but when you see it when standing on the floor it looks centered - really - I swear it does!!!
This is a little bit better picture -
All in all, it turned out really cute and does exactly what I wanted it to do - make the picture look a little more in the spirit. Think I'll do something like it for Thanksgiving too - maybe with leaves and acorns.
I may need help with my Dollar Store addiction soon - anyone have any ideas?
Almost Friday! (Thinking about doing a happy dance, but too darn lazy!)
