Scary Door Wreath

We love Halloween in our house, especially the more macabre aspect of it.  Usually I put up a floral door wreath for fall, and I still will after Halloween is over but I made a more gruesome one for the 31st.
I used a wire wreath form with ribbon and a boa.  Then I attached chains I found in the bead and jewelry section of A.C. Moore.  I also added a few jewels that I thought would look good.  The skull key in the middle is an ornament from Michael's.

Scroll saws and paint and wire...oh my!


I get all these great catalogs but can't afford to buy everything.  So I asked my husband to show me how to use a scroll saw to cut out the hat, shoes, and the end cuts on the wood strips.  Then I just painted everything and attached it with wire, and a little glue.  Easy, easy!

Finally I'm back

Sorry for the long hiatus from my blog.  I enjoyed summer with my four girls to it's fullest.  Also I have been having trouble getting my pictures off of my camera for quite some time, but no more.  I will be up and running come Monday with a new project I'm working on for Halloween.  See you then.  :)
