more halloween wreaths

i finished a couple more wreaths. these ones are WAY faster than the other, only about half an hour each. amazing what a time saver the glue gun is!

they're both made of a flat wood wreath form from the dollar store that i painted, then wrapped garland around. (each wreath used two garlands to cover them)

the orange wreath

a black cat wire garland, little plastic pumpkin ornaments, orange mardi gras beads, black spider rings with the rings cut off, and halloween ribbon.

the fang wreath

(the flash made a few of the irridescent bats look orange, but they're not)

i got those cheapy plastic fangs and drilled holes in them, then used black embroidery floss to tie them into a biting shape. i threaded them onto a third garland to look like they were biting it, and wrapped that around. i added the irridescent bat garland, the purple spider rings with the ring part cut off, and the little purple flies.

i think they're so fun! and they were pretty cheap. i have a ton of halloween stuff already, so the base supplies were about $3 or $4 each, and then the extras. i probably spent about $10 for the two of them.

i've still got one more like this to finish, but i need to go buy more black garland. and then i have a grape vine wreath that i want to put halloween ATCs on too.

Hi, I'm a Halloween fan as well. I love these wreaths. I never would have thought of decorating with fangs this way - very fun.

Where did you find the black garland? I am having a hard time finding it.

i found the garland at a canadian dollar store chain called dollarama, though they're already starting to run low on their halloween stuff, i'm not sure how much they have left!
