I loved the "Never More" paired with the ravens idea - kind of a smart yet creepy Halloween idea. Which is how I like my Halloween. Creepy, not scary and more funny than frightening. Fortunately, I knew exactly where to find a raven too! The Dollar Tree! I headed up there to grab me one of those lovely birds and $50 later, headed home to get workin' on the wreath.
I used an old pie pan and book pages to make the base for my wreath. I've been using a lot of those materials for the Toile Good Things store...see...so I had everything I needed out on the craft table (formerly known as the dining table). Added some bits of black tulle into outer pages and then stuffed the raven into a nest of shredded and crumpled book pages and hot glued that whole mess to the bottom inside rim of the pie pan. I got out my trusty Silhouette machine and cut me out some letters and bats for decoration from grey cardstock. (which btdub, if you have a Silhouette, the Halloween downloads are on sale for $.75! and if you don't have a Silhouette, there are a bajillion blogs giving away the newer version, the CAMEO. I'll round up a list and post it on FB if you're interested)
Added a hanger bow made of more black tulle to the back and hung her up and am much happier (this year at least) with my new Halloween Raven Wreath and got it up just in time, 4 days before the holiday! Ha!
and will I procrastinate on creating holiday decorations again?
I say, "never more"!
Happy Friday yall!
Linkin' up to these awesome parties!!
