Halloween Wreath

I have wanted to make a wreath for a long time, and I finally got one finished  during my crafty weekend at the beach with my girlfriends. I had intended for this wreath to be for a Halloween blog hop, but I did not realize how much paper I was going to need! I will tell you that I used quite a bit of paper. The paper I used is from CTMH and the colors are Black, Smokey Plum and Autumn Terracotta. The Spider web is made from CTMH black hemp, and was the idea of my friend Kim Millard. (Thanks Kim, for the idea and for the hemp!) The spiders were purchased from my local grocery/variety store from the Halloween section, and the ribbon was purchased today from the local scrapbook store here in Seaside, Oregon. The foam wreath was a purchase from my Michaels store in the floral section, and it is 12 inches.

The flowers were cut using my CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. The flower can be found on page 70, and was cut at 3 inches. ( font<tag5>) The flowers were rolled and glued together with  hot glue gun, and then hot glued to the foam wreath (careful! the glue gun can get hot!) I then hot glued the bow and the ribbon to hang it with, along with a black spider at the bow, and the green one on the right side. the web was hot glued to the foam in a star pattern, then I just wrapped hemp around the star to make the web, adhering the hemp with liquid glass.
