Halloween Wreath

Aaron's babysitter LOVES Halloween.  Well, what's not to love, right?
Spooky decorations.
Orange & Black.
Spiders, skeletons, and gobblins... OH MY!

She was telling me about all the decor that she ordered to get her house looking awesome for the special season.

Well, I think I mentioned it before how awesome his babysitter is... if not SHE'S AWESOME!

She's done so much for Aaron and I and I haven't found the opportunity to do anything in return.

So my immediate thought was make her something to add to the decor!

Here's what I came up with.

All items can be found at the Dollar Tree.  I'm still not sure if I like the leaves.  They are just sticking in the Halloween garland, so I can remove them if she doesn't like them.  But the crow and the spider were 2 of my FAVORITE Dollar Tree finds.  I bought extra of both because I definitely want to remake this wreath for myself.  

The garland had these little skulls on them, but I tore them off cause I didn't want them on the wreath.  It's white and black.  I just wrapped 2 of the garland strings around the wreath, and added the craw, spider, skull and leaves.  This was so simple.  Probably took me 10 minutes to make and very affordable.

Looks like I need to get myself over to the Dollar Store for more Halloween goodies! I love what you've done with them all! I've never made a wreath before but I definitely want to, especially after being inspired by one as creepy and cool as yours. Thanks for the tip on using the garland, I never would have though to do that but it really makes the wreath. Spotted your link at Sumo's Sweet Stuff link party.
