Halloween Wreath

I had this old crummy twig wreath on my front porch.  It had seen better days.  I was just gonna take it down and find something to replace it, but a light bulb went off (IT DOES HAPPEN!) and I thought to myself, "Hey!  I can fix this up and make a Halloween wreath out of it."  So that is exactly what I did. 


This is the wreath before.  It's kinda just blah!

I bought a can of black spray paint, cobwebs, spiders, and a cute BOO sign.  I made sure to spray the wreath down with cleaner first, because it had some dead bugs, leaves, and stuff in it.  I then took it out back on the dirt and sprayed the heck out of it with spray paint.  Make sure to turn it over and all around to make sure you get everything black.  I let it dry for awhile.  Then I hung it back up on my porch and strung some cobwebs all over it.  I let Coy put the spiders on and he really thought that was fun!!  Last, I hung the BOO sign in the center and I was so excited how cute it turned out.  I think i'll change it for every holiday.  How fun would that be?! 

This is the old wreath after!  Cute, right?!  I love it!!

So, if you have an old wreath or decoration, fix it up!  It's cheaper than buying something new and makes you feel good to create something on your own.

Happy Wednesday!!
