Halloween Wreath

So.. I'm back.. even with all of my grief.. I just CANNOT sit still.  I have to keep busy.. so the kids and I have been trying to decorate the house for Halloween.. you know get into the spirit.  So this morning I sat down and made a super spooky upcycled wreath. 
It started out as this wreath..
But it ended up as this one:
So here is a quick tutorial so you can make one too!
First I started by adding the purple ribbon to my wreath.
  Then I cut a big cirlce out of my gray felt and glued it underneath the wreath.
Then I used this paper
 to cut out the shapes of the cemetery , dracula and the tree from black felt.
Next I glued it to the gray felt background.
Then I used my bat craft punch
 to make 3-D bats for the background and outside of the wreath..
I used some old fancy popsicle sticks to make a fence by painting them black.
Last I glued the fence on and had myself a new spooky wreath.
Hope you have fun making Halloween decorations!
