Halloween Hoop by Zsoka Marko

Thursday, October 31, 2019

Hello crafty friends, Zsoka Marko here, Happy Halloween to all of you who celebrate it! It's funny, I seem to have a blog post scheduled every year on Halloween! I don't mind though, I love working on Halloween projects even if we don't actually celebrate it lol. Some months ago I bought a few different gold hoops at my favorite store here in Germany thinking I could create wreaths for all kinds of occasions. Well, this is the first haha!

Paige has soooo many awesome Halloween-themed cut files, it was really hard to choose. I was looking for a spider web in the shape of a heart I remembered seeing but didn't find it, so I went with an older cut file: Spiderweb. Once I cut it, I actually found the other one I was looking for hahaha: Spiderweb Heart with Spider, plus a second one, Spiderweb Heart! My ring is just a bit smaller than 12" so I cut the spiderweb as big as I could from a 12" black cardstock so that it has some overhang. Not all ends are long enough but there's a few I could attach to the ring. I die cut some bats too in various sizes from the same cardstock - for these I used the Bat Background.

I then went through Paige's collections to find some purple, orange, and green papers for the Rolled Paper Flowers. I used my hot glue gun to assemble all the flowers. I then covered about half of the ring with a lime green elastic band I bought for my traveler's notebooks years ago. You could use ribbon too, whatever you have in your stash! Oh, one more thing I die cut, the BOO sentiment - I just used the Impact font for these.

Once everything was die cut and assembled, I could start putting my wreath together. I attached parts of the spider web to the elastic band, others to the ring, using hot glue. I arranged my flowers and glued them in place. The big letters followed, finally the bats. I added a few enamel dots to the middle of the layered flowers. Last but not least I attached some ribbon in coordinating colors so I could hang the wreath on our door.

That's pretty much it! I already forgot how much I love working on rolled flowers! I hope you'll give this idea a try! Thanks for stopping by today and have a fang-tastic day!
