Halloween Wreath – An Official Clearance Project

· Comments (1)

Halloween Wreath by Lorine Mason

What do I mean by an Official Clearance Project? It is simple, at least two of the major components of the project must have been purchased in the clearance department. The stores can vary from craft, home renovation, discount, thrift or department. Basically wherever you can find a great buy.

Supplies

In this case; the black Gerber daisies were purchased at a craft store for $.29 a piece, the cording was 70% off and the 1 1/4 yard of fabric was a 80% off. I think it qualifies! You will also need a Styrofoam wreath, some Fabri-Tac glue, a knitting needle, a pair of scissors, ruler and/or a cutting mat and rotary cutter.

Here is how to make this fun wreath:Start by cutting your fabric into 3″ squares using either your scissors and a ruler or a rotatory cutter, ruler and mat.

Add a drop of glue to the back of each square and use the knitting needle to poke the square into the foam base. Continue until you have the the base top and sides covered. Remove the clip from the back of the flowers ( each of my flowers came with an alligator style clip on the back, I simple pulled it off), add a drop of glue and attach to the wreath front. I then cut cording into 4″ lengths, coated the ends with glue and added them around the wreath. Voila!

While this project is an Official Clearance Project it is also a project featured in the Designer Connection Blog Hop. We have a wonderfully talented group of designers, who each with their own style are featuring Halloween designs this month. Be sure to click on the Designer Connection logo along the left side of my page and hop along. It will be well worth your time, I promise.

Until next time, Thanks for stopping by,   Lorine
