EEK!

Wreaths are one of my favorite things to make. They're fast, inexpensive, festive, and fun!

A little sneak peak:
You can use any color tissue paper...I used zebra and orange. Cut rectangles out of tissue paper- mine were about 4 in x 6 in. Stack about 8 on top of each other, and fold them into a zig-zag.
After you've folded into a zig-zag, tie a knot in the center of the tissue paper.... I used dental floss- for no reason, other than that's what was close.
Start pulling the tissue paper towards the floss string. Pull one side, then the other. When you've done both sides, you will have a flower. Now, make a bunch more!Hot glue onto a grapevine wreath! I added little skeleton heads that I found at DOLLAR TREE(!), and the spiders are from Target (last year).

I think Fritz likes it:)

  14. Love it! Are those skeleton heads rings? They look bigger than the skeleton head rings I've seen around but I guess those would work if I can't find bigger ones like the ones you used. Thanks for linking up.

  15. Thanks! They aren't rings, they are about 2 inches big. They came in a package of about 12.

  16. I can't find a place to email you at and have a question about how you made the small thumbnail boxes with each day you link. Can you email me at ktbright7@aol (dot) com? I'd like to do something similar on my blog instead of posting all the links on each of my post! ;)Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
