In the midst of my fall work chaos, I decided I needed a mental diversion, something to let me channel my creative energy on a daily basis when I am up to my eyeballs in editing and staring at the computer for hours on end. Like a lot of people, I’m a Pinterest fan, and I always see so many cool and interesting things on there that I’d love to try but never end up doing. Because, as I mentioned, I am up to my eyeballs in editing. So, with inspiration sparked from Pinterest (but not copied), I decided to make a Halloween wreath for my front door. All my Halloween decorations are currently in the loft in our garage, waiting to be pulled down by my husband when he has a free moment (which are few and far between) so I can throw them around and try to make the house look festive. To be honest, I’m not always the best at doing that. Sometimes I prefer to not decorate at all, but this is disappointing for my girls so I can’t pull that off very often. This year I am feeling the urge to get my scare on though. And I am starting with my new wreath.
It took me a few weeks to get this together, and my oldest daughter helped me out here and there on it as well. It was easy, but time consuming, and cost more than I care to admit. But I love the end result. It’s very sparkly, and I am all about the sparkle. I’m already plotting another wreath for Christmas.
