Recycle old wire hangers and make a beautiful pumpkin wreath with your children. All that is needed are orange and green pipe cleaners and paper. Simply shape your hanger into a circle and then wrap orange pipe cleaners around the circle. I used green pipe cleaners to make a stem around the top hook.

My daughter, Eryn, came up with the idea to cut triangles out of paper for the eyes and nose. We used paper for the mouth as well. She used thread and scotch tape to make the face look as if it was hanging. This works well for a school craft. No glue involved or mess! Only takes about five minutes when you have all of your supplies ready. See photo!

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.

Craft: Quick Halloween Wreath
Quick Halloween Wreath

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.

Heres my earthy tweak!!!

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.

If everyone does a little, we can all do a lot!(10/06/2008)
