Halloween Wreath

October 3, 2011 by 20 Comments

I used a 40% coupon on Hobby Lobby’s website (just showed them the coupon on my iPhone and they gave me my discount).  Love that!  
12 inch styrofoam wreath – $2.39 with coupon.


Target has black duct tape for $3ish at Target.  And I grabbed candy corns at the same time…a large package was $2.  I grabbed 2 bags which was perfect, an extra half of a bag was left to give us a sugar high!
My trusty hot glue gun…it was my mom’s years ago.  I inherited (forever borrowed) it in college.  As long as you make sure each row the candy corn flips the opposite direction, its all good.  How long did it take!?!?  The length of one good Gigi and Me phone conversation!  
Finish with a quick coat of polyurethane – I found some in our garage…then let it dry for about an hour.  
We’re ready for Trick or Treaters!

    This is adorable. I was just wondering the other day if polyurethane would work to seal candy…guess you just answered that. Thanks – Have a wonderful week :)

  14. Kerry says:

    Not sure which is cuter, your wreath or your door!

  15. I would love to make one of these but I fear I would just encourage the squirrels … and would wake each morning with them hanging from my front door!
