I have been promising to make a Halloween wreath from scratch and today was finally the day that I accomplished it. I wanted to make something for each of my great niece’s for their rooms. One is going to college next year and the other is fifteen, so each wreath needs to be specific to the personality of the niece. Maybe not their personalities so much as their needs. Ashtin, who is going to college next year, is all about decorating her dorm room. I thought this wreath would be a perfect addition to her room. Erika is fifteen and when we were shopping together, she saw me get really excited about Halloween lights that are battery operated. I thought they would be so much fun to include in some kind of Halloween project, although I’m not exactly sure what that will be yet. She’s a swimmer and I have these really funny stamps of an old zombie couple in bathing suits that might be a perfect centerpiece to whatever I eventually make for her. I’m not quite sure what to do with the zombies and the lights, but whatever I make, I hope she really likes it.
The wreath came out really cute and I think Ashtin will like it, although it will be really difficult to transport so I’m not exactly sure how to get it from here to Virginia and then from Virginia to her school (which she hasn’t chosen yet.) I’m hoping I can figure out a way to get it to her that won’t destroy it. Keep your fingers crossed, there’s a really good chance it’s going to get crushed. Yikes, why do I make projects that are seemingly impossible to get from point A to point B? I guess I’ll just go with the idea that it’s really cute right now. That’s my plan and I’m sticking with it. Maybe she can watch the video of the making of the wreath and think about how cute it was at that moment and not think about how bad it looks once she gets it. I’m a horrible horrible crafter.
