Loopy Halloween Wreath

I wanted to make a Halloween Wreath pretty bad and spent some time looking around to get some ideas, when suddenly I saw just what I wanted to do. Head on over here to Outspoken Interiors. See what wreath inspired me.
I had SO much fun making this, but I have to admit....it took up some time that's for sure!

Cut out tons TONS of stripes of adorable Halloween paper and tape them at the seam.

Then using another pieces of tape, tape it down onto your straw wreath (with the plastic still on)

For the flowers, cut out three circle ranging in size and tear then ink the edges.
Who doesn't love to ink things?! I ink EVERYTHING!

I did a jute rosette for my flower center.
Do you call it jute or twine....is it the same thing? I just don't know.
I guess I'll call it juwine...lol. Forgive me...I'm tired :)

For my spider I used different sized Styrofoam ornaments from Hobby lobby and just painted them a metallic purple. The legs are sticks painted a sparkly black and it dangles with juwine :)!

I love the way it turned out....even if it took me FOREVER!
Linking up to these fabulous parties!
