Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a nice, relaxing weekend and are ready for a brand new week. We had three soccer games this weekend, but other than that it was pretty laid back. And it was cloudy, rainy, and windy…which I actually love this time of year (except when I’m at said soccer games). This kind of weather makes me want to stay inside and do something crafty. I know, I’m a nerd. The problem is, I waste all my time looking on Pinterest trying to figure out what craft to do. I pin and I pin and I never actually commit to making anything. Does anyone else do that, or is it just me? Well, if this is you too, then hopefully this post is a call to action for you. I have a craft all picked out for you, and once you have the stuff you need, it can be done in no time.
So, step away from Pinterest (it’s okay…take a deep breath…you’ll survive), and make plans to head to the store. You need to make this spooky little wreath now! I already did the hard part…figuring out what to make…for you. I did the Pinterest research and found this adorable wreath last year and made two of them with my girls (I cannot find the original pin to give credit for the idea, but I remember it being a Williams Sonoma knock-off). These are eight inch wreaths, but it would look just as cute with a bigger wreath and bird. They hang them on their bedroom door for their own little Halloween décor. Aren’t they adorable?
Best of all, they are super easy. So here is what you need:
- grapevine wreath, any size
- black crow (usually you can find these at the dollar store or a craft store like Jo-Anns or Hobby Lobby)
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- black spray paint
First of all, spray paint your grapevine wreath black. Make sure you get into all of the cracks and crevices. After it is dry to touch (I didn’t wait long), wire or hot glue (or both) your crow to your wreath. Next, glob on some glue and moss all around your crow. Just don’t burn your finger like I always do.
See! You are already done! Now go grab a command hook or wreath hanger and hang your simple, spooky wreath up. And hurry, because Halloween will be here and gone before we know it!
