As I mentioned here, I finally revamped my changing seasons wreath for Halloween. It turned out to be even easier than I had planned! So easy that it didn't even warrant pictures for the tutorial!
First, I took off everything from my Spring wreath. Once I was back down to the wreath base I showed here, I wrapped two black feather boas around to cover the base. Next, I printed out my bat image in a few different sizes and cut several out of purple glittery foam. (Yes! They have pre-glittered craft foam at Hobby Lobby! I was prepared to use glue and glitter and make these the long way, but no need. How fortuitous that they had the purple I already had my heart set on!) Then I just pinned some bats onto the wreath and DONE! Super quick!
So here's my batty Halloween wreath. (I may have added a few more bats after looking at this pic...)
I found my bat image with a google image search and modified it slightly. If you'd like to use it, send me an email and I'll send you the word document. I'll try to get it loaded for download in the next few days, but as it took me 2 weeks just to blog about the wreath I finished on the 2nd, don't hold your breath...
I'll be linking to my fave parties on the left. :)
