Well it's that time of year again--the kick off to the best time of the year when the temperature finally gives us a reprieve, we get to wear sweaters and jeans and boots, we get to decorate for several wonderful holidays, we get to turn on the oven regularly again and bake, we get to snuggle into down comforters...i could go on and on.
This kick off of course is Halloween. Although it is rarely cold here in California on Halloween, at least we get a taste of what's to come and there is the scent of autumn in the air...aaaahhhhhhhhhh!
I had a dinky little wreath I made years ago on my tall front door but did not know what to replace it with. Enter Crafts & Sutch's spider wreath. Brilliant! The best part? It cost only about $7. It's a little more than Erin made hers for, but my dollar store only had 2 little bags of moss left so I had to go to Michael's and cough up $3 for a large bag (still not too bad. I actually have one of the small dollar store bags left over, so technically it cost $6, but now I have to do something with another bag of moss :)
I followed all of Erin's directions except I did not have black glitter, but I did have silver spray glitter, so I used that on the black spiders (and also some flies). I used regular silver glitter on the green spiders to soften the neon-ness of them. I also used some wood I had on hand which was not large enough for "Happy Halloween" so I used two and painted little bats (or birds, I guess) on them. I used stickers for the letters and Mod Podged over the whole thing. I sprayed more glitter on the wreath, but it did not show up in the pics.
A much better fit for our large door.
I wish it was still light outside so I could take a picture with my "retro camera" app on my phone. That would look totally awesome! Maybe tomorrow I will remember to do that.
