30 days of halloween: our favorite d.i.y. wreath

This is a repost from October 2010.

It’s not often that I feel compelled to create one of MSL’s “Good Things,” but when the October issue landed at our house, I fell in love with this creepy Halloween wreath idea. The project is simple enough: Pick up a twig wreath at Michaels. Spray paint it black, and then glue some creepy crawlies onto it. (The magazine suggested using florist wire to twist them on, but a glue gun works okay, too). Martha’s was focused on snakes exclusively, but I branched out (pun intended) and added some spiders, rats, bats and bugs (all found at a Dollar Store). I am pretty pleased with the results, and plan on packing it away to use year after year. Coming soon: A spooky, cob-web covered porch. Stay tuned! — Angela M.

Please come decorate our porch! Ours is going to be the disappointment of the neighborhood, lol. Hopefully people will give us a pass this year!
