Halloween Wreath

I am really pleased with the way this turned out. I didn't do it for a challenge/design team or a magazine, I just did it for me, and had a lot of fun doing it!
I painted a 12 inch polystyrene ring with black acrylic paint, and wrapped it with 2" wide orange organza ribbon, then came the fun part, I cut a 12" spiders web from the paper dolls cartridge, and lots of little ghosts and spiders. They were all given googly eyes

I cut the word BOO from plantin, at 3", and shadowed it in black, then stuck some little ghosts and spiders to peek around the letters. I curved the spiders around my thumb, to make them more realistic looking
Everything was attached to the wreath with a hot glue gun, messy, but at least it holds stuff very firmly in place
