How to Spookify a Spring Wreath
I wanted to make a new Halloween wreath this year. But I didn't want to spend any money. That meant I had to make one from stuff I already had.
Remember this wreath I made in the spring from split peas? Well it had gotten pretty faded out. I thought this would make the perfect Halloween wreath. But not looking this way. It needed a makeover.
So I pulled off the daisy flower & pulled off the green ribbon.
I spray painted the entire wreath with black paint that I already had on hand.
I then made a paper fan or what ever you call it from some scrap paper I had on hand.
Then I spray painted the lid off an orange juice can. Printed out a cat graphic I stole off the Internet.
Hot glued it all together.
Tied it to my white frame with some spider Halloween ribbon I picked up at Dollar Tree. And that is how you makeover a wreath for Halloween for free (or almost free).
I'm really enjoying decorating for Halloween without getting out my old crap and not spending much money.
