Halloween: BOO Wreath tutorial


Howdy from Texas! The weather is finally cooling off here which means fall is approaching. Fall is my favorite season and I love everything about it, especially the pumpkin coffee, pumpkin beer, and CRAFTS.  I needed a new halloween wreath so I made this little boo-ty (ha ha).  Actually, I didn't need a new one... but I did need an excuse to make something new. It's an addiction, I know.   

Want to make this? 
Here is what you need:
1. Letters B-O-O (I got mine from Michaels)
2. 3 pgs of scrap book paper of your choosing (I got mine from hobby lobby)
3. Ribbon or twine
4. Glue or mod podge
5. Scissors


I wanted my wreath to have a vintage feel so I picked scrapbook paper to reflect this.  I used wooden letter that were about 10 inches in height. Place the letters facing down and closely trace the letters. (tip: hold the pencil with the tip inward so that the outline is more accurate). 


Cut the outline(s) out. Test the paper over the letter to review for errors. With glue or mod podge secure the paper to the letters. Allow to dry.



Once dry, secure the letters by tying them together. I used this twine that I found at hobby lobby. I really liked how it had beads and tiny leaves attached.


To finish the wreath, I added a bow at the top.  I saw a similar wreath on etsy and it was priced over $50. This one cost less then $15 to make.  Hang and enjoy! 

Make it spicy,
A
