I finally got around to putting some Halloween decorations together. I had been a total slacker, mostly because it just doesn't feel like fall around these parts, but I decided this weekend something had to go up, or I would miss it. And I didn't want to miss Halloween.
I took a straw wreath I already had (which was wrapped with yarn) and wrapped it in strips of this black and white striped fabric I had gotten at a garage sale a while back.
Let me tell you, I am NEVER EVER wrapping a wreath in YARN ever again! Wrapping in fabric is SOOOO much easier, and I think it looks just as cute.
It took me about FIVE minutes to cut the fabric in 4-5 inch strips and wrap it around the wreath. I simply secured it with two straight pins, so it will be easy to unwrap and wrap again with different fabric.
I used more fabric strips (in orange) to make the messy bow.
I'm convinced fabric wrapped wreaths are the new yarn wrapped wreaths, what do you think?
A simple "Boo!" banner was made by cutting bunting triangles out of construction paper, gluing on letters cut by my cricut, and stringing on some jute.
I love the way it turned out!
Now go and make yourselves some fabric wrapped wreaths and then go crazy over how much time you spent yarn wrappin last year :)
