Jump Start on Halloween








Well I am linking to Nester's Wreath Party and I had no intention of having a Halloween wreath, but I am rolling with the punches. I had intended on doing a wreath supporting the football teams that Dennis and I support, but my crimson Deco-mesh is on backordered. O'well.


I also had planned on doing a larger wreath for our front door for Halloween, but I ran out of black ribbon so I did an indoor wreath. Our Michael's is moving and the ribbon department has already left and of course Hobby Lobby isn't opened today. Hancock wasn't opened today (not real sure why does anyone have a guess?) This is what that wreath will be made of. I can't wait.



I am not quite sure how I feel about it, I have never been a huge orange fan. I also used pipe insulator from Lowes. I cut one in half. I learned this trick from Pinterest. By the way take note you may get smart remarks from men in Lowes telling you it isn't the right time of year to insulate pipes. Thanks!!


I used orange deco mesh ribbon and just regular ribbon that I purchased at Michael's. And yes I can make a bow, but as the rest of this project went I am out of wire and hot glue stick. (How does that happen?)




Hope that you guys stay tuned for our house divided wreath along with our front door Halloween wreath. Think witches feet.


I am also about to have a huge change on the blog so you will have a big surprise in the next couple of days.



By the way we are having a very rainy day. We have had a bit more than 10 inches since Friday....ugh. Luckily the house just has some debris,but our Florida room door is leaking so we will have to check that out. I hope everyone else is doing well from Lee.
