Halloween Yarn Wreath

Hello to every one!!  I hope your are enjoying the cooler weather....I know I am! 
I really missed it.  Can you believe it's October already!  Before you know it, it's time to be passing out candy or any other goodies you pass out for this time of year!!

Happy Halloween

Today I will share my Fall Yarn Wreath, with the Halloween decor.  Since I just love Fall and I found this beautiful Paprika colored yarn on one of my FridayFinds, I used it for this wreath.  I then made the decorations to attach to the wreath instead of gluing everything on. This way when Halloween is done I can take it off and then attach the Thanksgiving/Harvest decoration. 

Since I'm a cheapo queen, I refused to by a Styrofoam wreath! Even with a coupon. 
I was able to find some swimming noodles at the $ store. So I just cut about 3 inches off then taped it together.

Here I was at the home stretch.....after about 1 billion wraps I was done.  I'm glad because my yarn was starting to lose the neat yarn ball shape.  When I was done I secured the last wrap with a small dot from the gluegun.
Let's just say it was a big mess after I was done, the yarn kind of rolled off of the ironing board and just got worse. LOL! 

I couldn't decide what exactly I wanted to do, so I just took everything I thought I would use out.

After deciding what I wanted (burlap rosettes, crow, moss and Halloween sign).
 Took out a piece of felt that I would be gluing my decor to.

I rolled out my rosettes and glued a flat piece of backing, so they would glue down easier on the felt.

I should of done this before gluing anything to the felt....oopsies!! 
But, I was in a rush and doing multiple things at one time so it was missed.
I glued two chenille pipes to the felt, then glued a strip of felt over the pipe. 

I glued on the crow and now this is ready to go on the wreath.

I just twisted and folded them up.

Here is my Halloween sign.  I just glued the letters in a arc and it's ready to be tied to the wreath too!!!

I added a little moss and spiders and I'm done!!  I feel less is more!  Doesn't it look great!!

I hope you enjoyed my pics! 

With stuff that I had and stuff I needed to buy, this wreath cost me less than $10.00 to make!
