Spooky Skeleton Wreath

It’s getting a little spooky ‘round here.

I’m slowly adding to my Halloween d├ęcor… but first up is, as always, my wreath!  You may be thinking that this wreath looks a little familiar and for good reason – it’s my Simple Moss and Pumpkin Wreath made over for Halloween!

I picked  up a “bag of bones” on an outing to Walgreens, and thought it would be fun to have a sort of 3-D skeleton wreath.  The hands had somewhat pointed ends from the mold so I simply pushed them into the styrofoam base and secured with hot glue.  The skull’s shape nestled perfectly in the wreath opening, and again, hot glue keeps it there.

Mr. Bones greets my visitors with a glittered “boo” burlap banner.

I love how the skeleton looks like he’s coming right out of my wreath… eek!

Now if I could only get him to hand out my Halloween candy…

More fun to come with the remainder of the bones…

Don’t you love this time of year?!

  3. I strongly before scary over cute when it comes to Halloween decor. This is a perfect example of being cute and creepy at the same time. Love it!

  5. Your wreath is very appropriate for those who like scary stuff because it scares me to look at it on my screen. I wonder how you will use the other bones, I can't imagine. The wreath is very creative and is sure to be a hit on Halloween. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you will visit again.--Shannon
