Spooky & Spirited Wreath

Hello, everyone!  Today I am sharing a clean-and-simple
Halloween wreath that was created using the NEW "Spirited" Collection

I started with a wire wreath base used in making the deco-mesh style wreaths.  I was going for a very clean design with the main focus on the center piece, so I left the base pretty plain with the exception of a some knotted ribbons and the tinsel stems that come all ready attached.

I love, love, LOVE this paper with the spooky house!  For some reason it just reminded me of watching Scooby Doo LOL  I cut the paper down a bit and matted it with a larger, coordinating piece of paper.  Next, I colored in the house with watercolor pencils by Faber Castell. 
A little spritz of lime-green was centered around the middle of the design to give a cast of moonlight!

Before attaching the paper to an 8X10 painter's canvas, I added a black glittered branch that I found at Michael's.  I hand-stitched the branch in place with needle and thread.


A simple title sticker was placed at the top with foam adhesive.  
To attach the canvas to the wreath base, I punched two holes at the top and then attached with two large rings.  A couple of ribbon bows were tied on to the rings.

Thanks for letting me share with you today!  
I can't wait to hang this Spirited wreath up in my home!
