Halloween Spooky Black Wreath

My daughter wanted to know what my "Annual" Halloween decor would be for her home. Well, Just because I happen to make a couple of things in the past, I didn't realize it was an annual thing but as the good mother and grand mother, I needed an idea. I made a wreath. I used the Cricut to cut dozens of black cardstock leaves which I outlined in white pen and stickles(green, orange and purple). I then curled the leaves on the handle of a whisk. I used a glue gun (1st time) to attach them to a styrofoam ring which I covered in ribbon for sturdiness. I then made the paper ornaments, come with photos and added them, along with the web, spiders, skeletons and pumpkins, all cut with the cricut. The big skeleton is a Sizzix die. so off to Boston it went but not before I took this photo which I entered in a Holloween papercraft contest and won FIRST PLACE. YEAH!!!!! The prize, which arrived was a large halloween photo collage with the photos in individual frames, which I can use during the year for my own photos. It's really beautiful. I'll post when it's hanging.
