Time to Craft and an Easy and Cheap Halloween Wreath!

I have been out of the crafting loop lately, I had all these ideas that I wanted to do and just never got around to doing them.  Money was standing in my way, bills had to come first.  *smiles*

But last Thursday I made a trip to Hobby Lobby and got some items to do some crafting with.  So this week  and next will be filled with crafty posts!  Except for Tuesday for cookies…and for Thursday for dinner!

Here are the goodies that I got!

Oh yeah!  Some great goodie goodness…From feather boas to buttons and glitter…some fall foliage and glitter!  This was a lot of fun.

First up, I made a Halloween wreath.  This was not hard, it was so easy it was silly!  Plus with 30% off all Halloween decor at Hobby Lobby it was cheap! {this idea came from the one that is at Target for $20.00}

First I spray painted that round wreath maker {love that technical wording} black.  Second I wrapped the feather boas around {2 of those for lots of fluffiness} and then added some spider webs and glittery {made these too} spiders!  A cute gingham ribbon and I’ve got an awesome Halloween wreath!

Love the feather wreath! I haven't put out anything this year. My boys said our decorations were lame. So...until next year when I can afford to buy new things, I will put out nothing! Little turkeys.... BOYS. They want scary!
