Like just about everyone these days, I'm in love with Pinterest. And it's even more fun now that I've actually started working on more than just one of the projects that I've pinned!
This weekend I finished a couple of Halloween decorations projects, the first of which was a wreath for our front door made out of Halloween candy.
I didn't follow the instructions on how to make this at all (sorry Martha, but your way just sounded too hard, with tying all of those pieces of candy to a metal ring with string!). Instead, I opted to use my quick and easy glue gun, and a foam wreath.
I marked some approximate lines on the foam wreath with a Sharpie, as a general guideline of where each color of candy would go, and then I went to town with the gluing. While watching a House Hunters marathon on HGTV, which is my new Sunday tradition.
I just used cheap mints from the party supply store, since at $3 a bag, they were much less expensive than the fancy candy Martha used, and it comes in all colors of the rainbow.
I glued on a double layer of grosgrain and satin ribbon, tied it in a knot, and the wreath was ready to hang!
Are you beginning to put up your Halloween decorations yet? And have you recreated anything you've pinned on Pinterest? I just wish we had a bigger front porch, so I would have room for making even more Halloween decorations that I've pinned!
