Boo! Wreath - Part Deux
My younger sister recently moved back to Texas after living in California for a few years. I decided she needed a feathery Halloween wreath just like mine for the front door of her new house. Jake and I made a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and found a wire wreath form, a black feather boa, a small wooden Boo! sign, and a package of glittery purple spiders. This time around I used small pieces of black pipe cleaners to twist-tie the boa to the wreath form. They blend right into the feathers and you can't even see them. I used a few dabs of hot glue to attach the Boo!, the spiders, and a few of the glittery black bats leftover from my wreath. I thought about attaching a big black gingham bow at the top, but couldn't get it to look right, so this wreath is ribbon-less.
I'm still finding tiny black feathers all over my kitchen, including inside my toaster! But my sister loved the wreath and it looks great on her front door, so this one goes down as a crafty success.
