Hi friends!! Today I am sharing 3 halloween wreaths I created for Creative Embellishments. I don’t often do off the page projects but when I get bored of creating layouts I enjoy the occasional altered project. I have dabbled in many different hobbies but for last 9 years it all about scrapping. I used to cross stitch, plastic canvas pieces, quilt, crochet, knit etc. I have to admit it was fun creating these.
WARNING: PHOTO HEAVY POST
The first wreat was created with a metal ring, cut up white burlap pieces in the size 1.5″w x 9″h and some fun wood veneer spiders , chipboard web corners and the creepy title piece. It took about 2 hrs to assemble the wreath by tying the burlap pieces around the metal ring. I simply altered the wood spiders with maya gold in grey color. For the webs I simply dabbed some TH antique linen distressed paint. I added a little black to the webs by dry brushing grey maya gold onto the webs.The title piece was altered with distressed black soot stain , grey maya gold and dry brushed gesso. I wish I had a bit more black ribbon so I could make a bigger bow. I added flowers and sprayed a little black krylon webbing to finish the wreath.
The second wreath is full of our new skeleton bones. I altered them with with 3d stamp paint and with a black ink pad distressing the pieces around the edges. I added a few wood veneer bats that I altered with grey maya gold paint.
I used a 12″d raffia wreath that I painted black and added some fun yarn. The yarn have black hairy like strands that reminded me of webs.
I used 5 complete sets of bones on this wreath.
This is the smallest of the wreaths. I used an 8″ grapevine that I spray painted black. I used a bunch of different CE product on this lil wreath. A spider web corner that I altered with a base coat of black distressed stain and dry brushed gesso. I added a leftover wood spider to the web and added a gem to the center of its abdomen. The frankenstein head and hand from the monster mash set was altered with a base of modeling paste and 3 different color distress paints. Lastly I swiped my black ink pad across the pieces to enhance the texture. The berry branches were altered with gray maya gold paint for the branch, orange acrylic paint and glossy accent for the berries and dry brushed a little gesso over for a web look. The pumpkin was altered with prima chalk edgers and dry brushed gesso. The wood veneer bats have a base coat of grey maya gold paint and gress distress stickles on top.
I hope you enjoyed all the fun halloween altered wreaths. Have a creative Tuesday!!
