Halloween wreath

 Welcome to my new obsession. I discovered paper doilies.
I used 4 sheets of 12 x 12 Halloween paper from Micheal's.

Cut strips ranging from 1.5, 2, 2.5, and 3 inches. You will need 2 strips of each size to make 1 doily.

Once you have cut all the sizes you want get your score board out. Score each piece at every .5 inches. Then according fold the pieces. Use a little glue to secure the ends together.

Now for the fun part. Stand the paper circle on it's side and force the edges into the center. Magic it becomes a doily. Now punch a small circle for each one. I used the circles to adhere the doilies to.

Make a circle as large as you would like the wreath to be. I used the back of the paper package.

I added a few ghosts from mini monster and placed a crown on their heads. A few gem stones and ribbon to finish it off. Hope you like it!

Boo lighted pumpkin

 An other lighted pumpkin. I used the same process as I did for the large lighted pumpkin.

I cut the letters out on my cricut and taped them on. Using the drill to make holes along the letters. For added accents I did 3 rows around the pumpkin.

I think it turned out great. Except for the one light I can't get to work. Oh well!

Lighted Pumpkin

 There are 175 lights inside this pumpkin. And may I add this is a PITA to make! I used a drill to make all the holes. Finger pressure to force the bulbs into the holes. I would suggest you plug in the light set as you are pushing the bulbs in. I did not do that and ended up going back to the bulbs that wouldn't light. In my case it was just loss bulbs. Thank goodness!

The pumpkin is from Micheal's. They are all 40% off right now!

Spider's web

Scrap lifted this from the Martha Stewart page.

Using a small foam pumpkin from Micheal's. I used tinsel ribbon to create the web. Sized a plastic spider and glued on top. This was very simple and easy to create.
