Enter if you DARE...wreath

Here's my creepy new wreath for Halloween.. 
Pin It
uggh I just GAVE Up.. the kids won.. we are decorating BEFORE the 1st!
Now this is a stashbusting inspiration project to all of you who are considering joining my October Overhauling!
This was made from ALL items in my stash.. 
Want to make one?  Here's how!
Spray paint
Acrylic Paint
Scrapbook Paper
Wood (I used an old Pallet)
Vintage Lace
Creepy black cheese cloth
I started by spray painting my wreath 
BLACK of course!
Next I added my black spooky cheese cloth and hot glued my little crow on the top with a lacy ribbon to hang it.
Then onto the sign.. 
Start with wood and scrapbook paper.
Paint the edges. 
Then Mod Podge the scrapbook paper and the words "ENTER IF YOU DARE"
ohhh.. just gave myself the chills!
And of course add some lace tied to the creepy vintage key and a big SCARY spider.
Now for those of you who are NEW here.. I am a HUGE handmade flower gal.  I put them on everything!
So, I just HAD to add some beauty to the macabe..
Then I glued in my wood sign for real.. (love my glue gun!)
Added some spider webbing.
And hung it on the door!
Ohhhhh.... spoooky!

  1. You are a genius! It's beautiful, but creepy, too! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  2. Genius! I seriously would have never have thought to spray paint the wreath! I mean, I consider myself the Queen of spray paint and have never ever thought to do that! Love your spooky wreath. All of the perfect creepy elements.

  3. That's cool that you made the project from stuff you already had! And I liked how you described your black cheesecloth as 'creepy' before it even was used in this project!

  4. Ooooh, I love this! I've been really wanting to make a Halloween wreath. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Thanks for stopping by our blog today! I am now happily following along with your lovely blog, as well. Have a great week!
