While I was doing a small amount of Halloween decorating in the kitchen, and making some blackened jars for votives,
I also put together a Halloween wreath that I am using on our front door this year.
It has had a bit of a makeover….
Initially, this wreath was hot pink. Yup. Hot pink. I used it for Valentines day once, years ago. Since then it has been an attic dweller.
Having a light bulb moment, I pulled it out, dusted it off and changed it up to give it a new life.
Repurpose, reuse, recycle, y’all!
This is the color it was before the makeover, in all it’s pink glory.
All I had to do was give it a really good coat of spray paint (a can or so is plenty) making sure to get all the angles to cover the original color. And I would suggest that you pre-fluff your wreath before spray painting, to avoid having to touch it up later.
This is the wreath after it was coated with Krylon black spray paint. Much better already.
When it was dry, I added 4 pieces of glittery Halloween Swag. I am a huge fan of all things glittery!
I took apart the largest, the bat, to make 2 pieces out of it, and attached them with some floral wire.
The pieces cost one dollar or less each and the paint was about $3.50 per can, so total cost for the wreath was around $7.00. That is thrifty if I do say so myself!
Now, it has a shiny, festive new life!
