Halloween Paper Wreath

Ok far this is my most favorite thing that I have created this week....yes, its the only thing that I created this week, but good golly..... I love it!!  I finally made one.  And let me just tell you, last night when I finished it and I was talking picture so that I could post it and all my pictures where HORRIBLE!   I went to bed and I was so bummed that I had to wait until I got home from work to post it.  So I turned on tinker bell threw the girls in front of the TV gave them some cookies and milk and here I am.  So lets get to it already...... I'm dying to show you.

Here are my supplies, foam wreath, (left over from Eastons Birthday wreath) a book from the dollar store, a scallop punch and of course DIET COKE.
 Basically all that you do is punch out a ton of scallop circles from the book and then hot glue them to your base.  I used a maker to fold the paper over and then glued it to the base

once my wreath was all done, i thought it was kinda small.  I took the frame that I have had forever from Ikea, that everyone has and just glued some paper on the insert of the frame.  well actually my wonderful hubby did this part, I could not get the paper straight and it was really bugging him.

 it still needed something..... so I made a "spooky" little banner. I made paper lollies stamp the letters on different paper and then attached those with some toole to the lollies.  I attached the lollies together with a needle and thread.

 added some more "spookyness"
  and WA-LA!!  here it is.........................

I hope you love it as much as I do.
