DIY Halloween BOO Wreath

If you happen to know someone who is completely, 100%, addicted to paper, and glue, and glittery letters….

You might want to share this with them.

Two awesome things will happen, the first they will make a small dent in their paper hoard.  

And the best part, have a new wreath after about 30 minutes of paper-folding, hot-gluing and giggling over
how pretty their paper is.

I couldn’t wait.

I wanted to wait at least until the first week of October to share this with you, but I just can’t.

It’s too easy and thrifty not to kick off Halloween decorating a little early, and do some Halloween crafting together.

I don’t know about you, but I am never ready to make something spooky until we are well into September.  When
the back to school supplies and Halloween decor are set up at the same time each year, it just takes me a while to
adjust.  But before long, black crows, bowls of candy, and spooky decorations lure me in…and here we are.

Making our first Halloween project.  Are you ready?

Ok, here is what I used to make my new Halloween Wreath:

  • 16-20 assorted 12″ x 12″ Halloween scrap book papers, I used a mix of heavy cardstock and craft paper
  • Hot glue
  • Scissors
  • Glitter letters to spell BOO, or EEK, or HAPPY HALLOWEEN
  • Coordinating paper to make banner
  • Trim, ribbon, tassels, whatever you love as a festive touch, I used one yard of orange pom pom trim
  • Small piece of twine or ribbon to make a hanger for the back

Directions:

These paper medallions are pretty easy to make.  Once you make the first one, you will have it down, and it gets really
fun to combine prints and colors.  I did my large main medallion with 4 pieces of 12″ x 12″ pieces of paper.  The smaller
medallions take two sheets each, just cutting a sheet in half for each quadrant of the medallion.  Once they are all folded
like in the picture above, use dabs of hot glue to attach them and set aside until you are ready to assemble your wreath.

I moved the pieces around until I was happy with the layout, and used a little bit of hot glue to attach each of them
together, then add my BOO banner, which is just paper triangles and pre-cut sparkly black letters.
The orange pom trim went on next, tacking it down with a bit more glue, and a small loop of twine on the top/back to
create a wreath hanger.

Now you just have to sit back and wait for the big day to arrive.  I love Halloween, and listening for the doorbell
to ring that first time as it begins to get dark Halloween night.  The youngest of the little goblins venture up the steps
to smile, barely get a “trick or treat” out to watch in amazement as they bag of candy grows with each stop.

It’s magic, and makes me feel like I am 6 years old again, dressed up like my hero Wonder Woman.

Very excited, and possibly even a little creeped out at the older kids and their complicated costumes.

I LOVE HALLOWEEN! Did I mention I am excited?

I won’t be dressed up like Wonder Woman this year, something a bit more age-appropriate…I haven’t been
Morticia in quite a few years…I feel a DIY costume coming on!
