I really enjoy hanging a wreath on our door at Christmas. I would like to find some ideas for creating a Halloween wreath that I could hang on our door in October. Thanks for any suggestions.

You can find all kinds of fall items and Halloween do-dads to use on wreaths. Let your imagination be your guide. I recently purchased a ready made wreath for $10.00, knowing I wasn't satisfied with it in it's present condition, also knowing that I would redo it. I did buy a spool of coordinating ribbon, to add to it.
When I got home I took all the fall leaves and flowers off it and using a hot glue gun, started repositioning everything and cutting pieces of ribbon to form loops in between some of the flowers and leaves. When I got done with it none of the really scrawny grapevine form could be seen and it looks much nicer.

Need a quick wreath? Garbage bags cut in to strips, tied on a wire hanger. Any shape a few left over decorations with a little glitter. And all for free.

What a neat idea!! A black wreath. so unique!
GREEN WAY: Replace bags with old VHS tapes that have been watch so much they don't work. Pull the ribbon out and cut to length. A lot less time spent and you reused garbage instead of wasting a new bag.
