May Arts Halloween Blog Hop


Welcome to the May Arts Halloween Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the talented Candy Rosenberg's blog.   I've had a ball creating this wreath.  Hope you enjoy it.


I started with a plain grapevine wreath that I picked up for $3 at my local craft store.  I added a few fun embellishments like this dapper sparkly crow.  Then the fun began with all that wonderful May Arts Ribbon!


I ended up turning him around so his pretty sparkly chest was more prominent.  You can click on any photo for a closer look at these amazing ribbons!


I had some wired picks in my stash of "stuff" so I simply wired 10" pieces of ribbon like this:


and poked them securely into the wreath, then added some sparkly orange pumpkins.

Here's the Hop List for the week.  Prepare to be beautifully spooked!  Next up today is the uber cool Christina Colon.

The big wreath is so bright and colorful. Love the orange. The smaller wreath would fit my door better. Great job on both.

So pretty. I love the crow you used on the wreath, so scary yet merry too. I love the white ribbon, it looks like cheesecloth. Thanks for sharing a great idea with us.
