If you're enjoying my Halloween posts, be sure to follow with GFC or Facebook... I'm doing another 31 Days of Halloween series this year!
I hope you are well into your Halloween decorating! Let's continue our 31 Days of Halloween series with a spooky wreath for the front door!
Last week, I showed you my Bat Garland, which I made out of a black plastic tablecloth. I had a lot leftover, so I decided to use it for this project instead of fabric! I love when I don't let something go to waste AND I don't have to make a trip to the store. Win-win.
I cut the tablecloth into strips of various lengths. These were for making rosettes, so different sizes isn't a bad thing. I grabbed a foam wreath and my tablecloth strips and got to work.
Hang it up somewhere to let the glue dry.
Next, I made rosettes from the strips of tablecloth. Here's what I'll say about this part: It would have been much easier using fabric. You can't hot glue the plastic because it melts... so you have to use regular glue, which takes a while to dry. Using fabric would have been much faster and easier, but I'm a girl who likes a challenge. Also, as previously mentioned, I didn't want to go to the store.
I think everyone knows how to make rosettes by now, don't they? These have been sweeping blogland for forever... I laid out the strips of tablecloth and put some glue at one end.
From there, I made a rosette like normal... folding the edges and twisting and folding into infinity or until you reach the end. I glued the ends and taped them in place until the glue dried. Once it did, I had a pretty little rosette... or a million.
