Are DIY Wreaths Your Thing?

I found this Candy Corn Wreath tutorial and thought it was so cute! Cute enough that I wanted to share it with you ladies. Do you have any fun wreaths you've made?

Candy Corn Wreath

This is what you will need:
-wreath
-candy corn
-glue gun
-electrical tape
-acrylic glaze

This is how I made it:
1) I wrapped electrical tape about the wreath.


Here is what it looks like all black


2) Next I glued the candy corn onto the wreath. I got my candy from the dollar store and it took about 3 bags. I started in the middle and worked my way to the front.


3) I continued gluing the candy corn. I alternated directions of the candy corn every row.


4) I'm hanging this on my front door, so I had to water proof it. I used a can of acrylic glaze and sprayed it onto the candy corn.


5) I sprayed the whole thing. I went over it two or three times.


6) I added some cute Halloween ribbon and hung it on my door.

This is so cute! I want a glue gun now! I should admit though that I'm not terribly creative in this way. But I think I could do this!

 That is so cute.  I have made one Halloween wreath and am working on a second one.  I don't have any pics right at the moment but I will take some if you want to see.  The first one I did I got to black feather boas and a straw wreath from Walmart.  Then I got some eyeball balls, the bouncy kind.  I wrapped the wreath with the feather boas and then I glued the eyes on in pairs, it turned out adorable.  For the second one I got a pool noodle from the dollar store (I cut it down a bit and taped the two ends together to form a ring) and several sheets of orange felt.  I cut circles out of the felt and use a pin in the center of each circle to attach it to the foam ring.  I am covering the entire thing like this.  I made a styrofoam spider that I will attach to the wreath after I am done with the felt.
