Halloween Ribbon Wreath

If given a choice between pretty holiday decorations and cute/whimsical  holiday decorations, I will always choose cute.  I don't know why.  Maybe because cute & whimsical = happy to me.   


There have been a lot of cute Fall and Halloween wreaths floating around here the past few weeks and I'd like to show a few of my favorites.  

I love this Fall Rosette Wreath that Laura from along for the ride made.  I just packed my Fall stuff up, but will be bringing it back out on Nov 1st.  In the meantime, I'll be making one of these to hang up when the time comes.

Then there is this this.  Beverly's (from Flamingo Toes) Semi-Scary Halloween Wreath

Because I love candy corn, I love this Woman's Day inspired Candy Corn Wreath from Karly @ Jellybean Junkyard.

OK, now this one isn't a Fall or Halloween wreath, but it so could be.  I can imagine these pins alternately painted black and orange or white and black.  Also, I think you could use regular clothespins and Mod Podge some Halloweenie scrapbook paper to them.  This one is an Embroidery Hoop Wreath
and it was created by Heidi over at Budget Wise Home.

This one was actually posted last year, but I recently ran across in during a Google image search.  I've already got the stuff to make this one and am hoping to get to it this weekend (fingers crossed because I've been saying that for the past two weekends).  This Plush Wreath was made by Mandi over at Smile and Wave.

I saw this one today through the Craft Gossip Facebook page.  It's a Boo Wreath by Paige Evans.  It's one of the projects from the Oct/Nov issue of Simply handmade.   

After I did my morning chores, I went right out to the local Five & Dime to get the stuff I needed for this.  I omitted the BOO and the bow, but I love how mine turned out.  I still want to get some ric-rac to add a little more whimsy to it.

I do realize that this is my 4th post today, but this thing is so cute that I just couldn't wait until tomorrow.

    PS: LOVE YOUR BLOG! You're becoming one of my fav's!


  2. I have a Dollar Tree wreath form and some halloween goodies calling my name from the dining room to create a spooky wreath. This was the reminder I needed to get busy this weekend before Halloween passes me by.

    And I may as well get started on the gumdrop wreath, similar to the candy corn one above, that I've wanted to make for far too many Decembers but never did.

  3. love beverlys tulle wreath. your version of the boo wreath is so cute. i don't have a halloween wreath, but methinks i should have! if we didn't have a wedding to go to tomorrow, i'd be putting all my halloween stuff out. maybe sunday.
