New Orleans Inspired Halloween Wreath


If you've been on my Pinterest page lately, you'll notice that I have been inspired by the skeleton wreaths that I've been seeing lately.  I had to make one.



They already reminded me of my trips to New Orleans, but I decided to go one step further with mine and add some masks...



some New Orleans inspired ribbon...


New Orleans inspired Halloween wreath with a skeleton and top hat and masks

gold fleur de lis, musical notes, old lace


and a few spiders and swamp moss, all in Saints colors of course.

A trip to Hobby Lobby was almost all that I needed to put this together. I love to go there when their ribbon is 40% off, and with 7 rolls of ribbon, I needed to wait for that week!!! All of the ribbon, the masks, the grapevine wreath, moss, and small skeletons came from there. The top hat and bones were purchased from The Halloween Spirit Store. I already had the skeleton but I'm sure they had one at the Spirit Store. The glitter spiders are from Pottery Barn and the sign I made out of a piece of plywood with chalkboard paint and sharpie. I intentionally made it a little rough and imperfect because it is Halloween after all. All things Halloween should be on sale this week so it's not too late to make one for yourself. If I can do it, so can you!


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
