It's October!!! Time to start decorating for Halloween, woohoo! This year I actually waited until October (well yesterday, but that's close enough) to decorate. I have seen these paper straw wreaths quite a bit and I have always wanted to make one. When I found these super cute Halloween straws at the dollar store, I knew that I wanted to make a wreath out of them, so I did and I love the outcome!
This is how I made it:
I took some cardboard and cut a circle out of it.
Using my glue gun, I started gluing the straws around the card board.
Once I had all of the striped straws glued on, I put the spider webbed ones on next.
And here it is all with all the straws on it.
I cut out an orange circle with my silhouette and I also cut out a spider web out of black vinyl.
I put the vinyl onto the orange circle and then glued it onto the straws.
And that's it!! I put it onto the frame that I made a few years ago and glued a big spider onto the frame.
Here it is with all of my other Halloween decor, like my spiderweb table runner, paper straw spider and Halloween plate.
And here is a close up, I love the colors and designs of the straws, they just make me happy!
Have you decorated for Halloween yet?
