Wicked Trick or Treat Wreath

Hey my crafts pals, I am so excited about the project I'm sharing with you today.. I saw a really cool Halloween wreath on Pinterest and it totally inspired me to make one for my door.. This was such a fun project to make and pretty inexpensive too... I love how cute this wreath turned out and I may have to make some for other holidays as well :0)

Here's the wreath that inspired me

Creating Wreath Pic's
1. Cut 1/2 yard of fabric and some tulle into strips
2. Tie fabric and tulle around a med. wire wreath frame
3. Take 2" wide ribbon and create stripes with a sharpie
4. Cut 2 of each shape(a front and back piece) a hat and shoes shapes out of 1/4 yard black satin fabric(the half circle for the hats brim isn't in this pic but needed)
5. Sew the shoe and hat pieces together wrong side out (leave a small opening) , turn pieces right side out, and stuff with a plastic bag (half a bag for each shoe)
6. Sew small opening shut when your done stuffing and attach the hat brim to the stuffed hat top
7. To assemble hat, attach ribbon, a large bow, tulle flower, and button with a hot glue gun
8. this is the hat finished
9. Using Mini Monsters Cartridge, vinyl, and chipboard create a fun phrase to hang in the center (hang with Embroidery Floss)

Here's a list of supplies:

*Wire wreath frame (found in the floral dept. for $2.99)
*1/2 yard of fabric pattern or not
*1/4 yard of black satin fabric
*Black Glittery Tulle
*Sewing Machine
*2" wide ribbon
*Black Sharpie
*Plastic Bag
*A stick( to help stuff and push out points on fabric pieces)
*Hot Glue Gun
*Mini Monster Cricut Cart. or and others you have
*Embroidery Floss ( to hang the sign in the center of the wreath)
*Stickles ( to make my letters glittery)
