Creepy crawlies wreath

Bug has started talking about Hallowen. A LOT. Everyday, she has been telling me it's tomorrow. And everyday I have to explain again that there is still a while to go. But hey, we can start decorating right ?

I pulled out  last year's felt pumpkin and will be making a couple more 

 I already had that foam pipe insulation Amie and I bought at Home Depot a couple of weeks ago. Another stash dive yielded perfect colors for Halloween out of my pile of Kona Solids and a baggie of plastice spiders that I bought last year on clearance. And that's how this Halloween wreath came together...

So after braiding another wreath, my glue gun got some action gluing all the creepy crawlies.

A lot of them ...

And for once I was not worried at all about the hot glue "strings".. they add to the result in this case.



  1. What a great wreath! You can't have too many spiders at Halloweeen, right?
