I’ve shared before my love of wreaths.
Must be the southerner in me. Got a door, gotta hang a wreath on it. And gotta change that wreath with every season.
My fallish Halloween front porch features no less than three festive handmade wreaths. It’s a big front porch.
Including this one I whipped up over the weekend.
I just used a black wreath form and embellished it with some awesome skeleton ribbon I bought from New River Pottery in Wilmington, N.C. (You could probably spray paint a Christmas wreath black to get the same effect.) Some purple glittery foliage (leftover from last year’s Halloween decorations), some glittered skeletons and a foam skull make for a spooky wreath indeed.
I’m calling this the ‘Til Death Do Us Part Wreath because I think it looks like the two hanging skeletons went to the gallows together. And I think the one on the left looks feminine, while the one on the right looks like a dude. (I watch a lot of “Bones,” so I’m sure my forensic analysis is correct.) This was not exactly the honeymoon this pair were expecting, I’m sure.
I’ll be back tomorrow — I hope — with some more fall and Halloween decor.
The Southern Bloggers Conference is coming up at the end of this week, and as a committee member, I’m busy tending to last-minute details. Frenzy. Rush. Rush Rush.
But oh so much fun!
I cannot wait for Friday to get here. It’s going to be an amazing conference. I can’t wait to finally meet some bloggy friends in person and to meet some new ones. And the sessions promise to be so informative
A VERY few tickets are still available. So, why don’t you come out and join us?
