A few years ago (almost exactly!), I bought this grapevine wreath for a $1.99. From this picture, you may notice two things. 1. I actually know how to take pictures now. 2. My floors are pre-Nemesis. Look! No scratches!
I spray painted it (of course) and added some plastic spiders to it. Yay me. But then…my husband packed it away in the garage for three years. I totally forgot about it until I ventured out there today to get some other items. So, I spruced it up.
I found the Spooky sign a couple of years ago on clearance at Hallmark, and I never really knew how I wanted to use it. Until now. I wrapped a big ol’ satin ribbon on the top (Wal Mart) and hung it up. Easy peasy.
When I hung it up, my daughter said, “Dad! Look at this wreath that mom made all by herself! That is so cool!” Mission. Accomplished.
I plan on announcing the winners for Lia Sophia and Limited Sketch on Wednesday, so make sure you enter to win! Until then, here’s a little sneak peek of some more Halloweening I’ve been doing.

So cute. I love the spooky. My nephew calls all his halloween decorations…skoopy halloween. This made me think of him.
That is cute. As my kids get older, they certainly don’t care for the “cutesy” Halloween decorations! We like spooky, too. Errr….skoopy.
Love the wreath it is awesome!
Love your wreath! Can’t wait to see more. 🙂

Love the wreath! Doesn’t Halloween make you want to paint everything black? And those can be found at the thrift store for about a dollar. Great project!
