Halloween wreath from DT goodies!
I was on vacation at the beach and got bored! I know, crazy but I don't relax easily. So I went to the local Outer Banks Dollar Tree. They had these awesome Halloween paper straws. I bought 6 packs. I cut the stripped ones in half. I got two craft glues and one styrofoam wreath. It wouldn't have been my first choice for wreath backing but I used what the DT had.
Because the straws needed something to hold them down I used plastic water bottles. I was on vacation---supplies were limited!!
I let it dry overnight.
The next day I added more straws to overlap.
Then I realized the foam back was way too thick so I grabbed a knife and chopped that sucker down!
Then I photoed it on wall...
It just seemed like it was missing something. The green styrofoam was showing in middle.
So I pondered!!
Then the middle looked empty so I added a little pumpkin and called it done!!
Total cost: $10.00
