Halloween Tutorial – Monster Wreath

[7 Oct 2008 | By | 0 Comment(s) | 5,864 views ]

I’ve been promising more Halloween tutorials, so here’s another one for you! We made this halloween monster wreath for halloween in 2005… It’s pretty easy to make, and is a perennial favorite decoration, so I’ve written up a tutorial on it–since I didn’t have any pictures of the making of it, you get my fabulous hand drawings..sorry!

*note: I don’t remember where I got the idea from, but the idea of a monster wreath is not original with me, but I really like my version! Also thanks to Chica and Erika who did most of the creation of the original one, as I was trying to decorate for the party!

Updates: More, including a quick no-sew version. (On flickr)
-And thanks to the reader who pointed out the tutorial on craftster — That could have entirely been the inspiration, especially since it’s so similar to my no-sew version! I loves the crafty internets!
