How About A Creepy Halloween Wreath

Halloween Bloody Eyeballs
Ping Pong Ball Wreath

Who doesn't like a little something a little gory for Halloween.

The base of this wreath is a 14" straw wreath.  I wrapped the form with black duct tape for a couple of reasons.   It makes the wreath a little stronger and also I wanted a black background behind the eyes.

I used 80 or so ping pong balls that were individually glued to the wreath.  I added googly eyes to each of the ping pong balls.   To enhance the look of the wreath I used red acrylic paint and splattered it all over the ping pong balls.  

The completed wreath measures about 18" wide and 5" deep.  I did add a small hanging loop to the back of the wreath.

The Beautiful Colors of Fall Captured in a Deco Mesh Wreath

Fall Colors Apple Orchard
Deco Mesh Sunburst Wreath

I absolutely love the bright, warm, vivid colors of fall. Unfortunately I live in South Louisiana so we really don't notice the color of the seasons other than green to brown. But, I still love the colors.

The base of this wreath is a 12" wire wreath form. I used 5 different Fall Colored Deco Mesh: Browns, Reds, Oranges, Golds, and Moss Greens. I also included a beautiful plaid Fall Ribbon.

I added a wood Apple Orchard sign to the center of the wreath to bring it all together.

The completed wreath measures about 25" wide and 10" deep.

This is the perfect wreath to keep up through the Fall Season.
