October is here! October is here! One of my favorite month’s of the year. My son’s birthday is this month, we get to do pumpkin patches this month, carve pumpkins, haunted houses! YAY! We’re back again this month with our fabulous blog hopping crew rounding up 12 Witch Halloween Decor ideas! TWELVE! And today I’m sharing my newest Halloween creation…my Glam Witch Halloween Wreath! And at the end of this post…you get the chance to win a box full of Martha Stewart Halloween goodies!! So stick around and check out all the Halloween goodness!
This wreath is SO very easy to make…I didn’t even take pictures of the steps because it’s that easy.
What You Need:
Silver (looking glass) Spray Paint
Martha Stewart Spiders
Witch Cutout (I used clip art and cut it out on my Silhouette…google it)
Martha Stewart Glitter/Glue
First up, spray paint your willow wreath silver. Let dry completely.
I used Martha Stewart’s Glitter and Glue set in “Goblin” and “Raven” to dust a few branches on the wreath for some extra funk (everything looks better with glitter, right?!).
Then I applied my Martha Stewart spiders to the wreath using hot glue.
Finally I cut out a witch silhouette clip art using my Silhouette and black glitter paper (google Flying Witch Silhouette and you’ll have tons of options). Then I applied the paper to the wreath with hot glue. FINALLY (again) I added black and green/white striped ribbon to tie in some more color and hung it on my door.
This wreath is something ANY of you can make it and it literally is so easy!
