Halloween Wreath

Hi there! More Halloween/Fall items have been arriving at our stores and they are awesome! Today I'll be showing you how to make a Halloween wreath using some of the picks and flowers we have. 

You'll need the following supplies:
- 14" Styrofoam wreath
- black yarn or wide black ribbon
- 2 Halloween sprays
- 1 bunch of black flowers with purple centers
- Glue gun

First, glue down one end of your black yarn or ribbon.  Ribbon is faster to wrap if you're in a hurry but the yarn looks great if you have extra time. 

Wrap the entire wreath then glue down the other end of the string or ribbon. 

Next, fold the stem of your sprays in half.  Place them on the wreath in the opposite direction with their stems next to each other. 

Glue them down with the glue gun.  Pull 3 of the flower heads off the stems.  Place them in the middle of the sprays, where the stems are touching.  Glue them down with the glue gun as well. 

That's all! I think it looks pretty and elegant.  This is what it looks like hanging in our store.

Until next time, happy crafting!
