Halloween wreath

This Halloween wreath was super easy, but time do it when you have time, but don't do it all at once! (oops the letters got crooked, I'll have to fix that :)

you need about a total of 1 1/2- 2 yds of fabric ( I had some scraps and I also bought 4 different kinds of material)

1 wire wreath form (I used a 12" form I think)
if you use a bigger form, you need more material!

1 large ribbon for the bow

boo letters (I cut out of carboard, painted, and glued beads)

brooch pins (to attach the boo letters)

cut your strips to 1"x6" pieces. make a pile of the different kinds of material and go in order when tieing them..or tie them in a random order. Just start at the top, on the inner circle and start tieing your strips in double knots side by side.

once all your strips are tied on. use chipboard letters or cut out your own and decorate it.
glue on the brooch pin on the back of the letter with hot glue and pin it to the wreath.

tie a bow and use a brooch pin and pin it to the top.

you are now done and hang it on your front door

I'm working on making one and I'm loving it! Thanks for the idea. You aren't kidding about it taking a long time though!
