Halloween Skull & Crossbones Wreath

Have a Bone Chilling Happy Halloween to all those who celebrate Halloween!

Did not have a Halloween wreath so I bought the styrofoam wreath that was covered with black mesh skull design at JoAnns 70% off and addl 20% off. 

Did not have red gems for skull eyes so I colored clear gems with a Spectrum Noir red marker.

Stamped sentiments, attached to Skull ribbon  and attached to bottom of wreath. Had originally placed the stamped sentiments on the wreath at top and when I asked daughter if she liked it she gave me her artistic critique that the sentiments on the wreath at top looked out of place and suggested I move them to bottom of wreath under the bottom skull. I like how they look at bottom attached to the ribbon.

This will hang on front door for trick or treaters to see. Photographed it on wall near my Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter life-size cardboard figure since it is raining now.
