Halloween Spooky Eye Trick or Treat Mesh Wreath

I know I said I wasn't going to do anything for Halloween...I was too busy with fall stuff this year. However, I found the bolt of Trick or Treat ribbon in one of my storage bins and a whole roll of the orange mesh in my attic and just had to do something with it! I remembered seeing this Trick or Treat sign at Hobby Lobby and went to check it out. Turned out it was perfect for the centerpiece! While I was there I picked up a bolt of the small black mesh ribbon and shear orange ribbon half price. Later on I remembered the spooky light up eyes I found on closeout for $1 each and thought they would be fun to add in the wreath.





I just love the mesh and ribbons together! So fun and fluffy!




The Trick or Treat sign is just perfect with the ribbon!





I can't wait to light these spooky eyes up on Halloween night!







That will most likely be the extent of my Halloween decorating, except for carving a few pumpkins. I can't believe Halloween is on Monday! Where did the time go? I've got to start on Christmas soon! Oh my!



Have a great weekend!

Hi Kristen! Oh, this is a wonderful wreath! You are so good at this!
I was thinking about Christmas and I always start my decorating early and wanted to use some ribbon on my Christmas tree this year but I don't feel really confident on how to use it. I've looked online but none of the tutorials 'speak' to me. I know you're wonderful at decorating trees. Would you consider a tutorial on how to add ribbon to our trees? Just a thought and you know I'd love it. I'm going back and look at your Christmas posts!
Have a great weekend and you're always a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
