Stampin' Addicts Fall Hop - Frightful Wreath

http://www.stampinaddicts.com/forums/general-stampin-talk/9540-holiday-catalog-blog-hop-fall-edition.html

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts 2014 Fall Holiday Blog Hop!  We have a ton of awesome ideas to share with you!  Be prepared to be adding items to your gotta have it list!!  If you are following the hop in order you just came from Kim's site Stitchin' n Stampin' on Paper where she shared some fantastic projects using Season Snapshots by Project Life!!  If you starting here that's okay too as we are all linked together so you will not miss a single stop!

I am showcasing the Frightful Wreath kit ... when they showed this at convention I knew this was the first thing I had to make.  You all know how much I love Halloween and it has a super cute purple spider!  Below is a picture of how the wreath looks if you complete the project as directed.



They next couple of pictures are the guts of the kit and as you can see it comes with everything you need to make it except for adhesive.  I would recommend a hot glue gun to really hold the pieces together.  The picture on the right is a shot of the directions that are included. They are super easy to follow!!


I decided I wanted to try something slightly different with my kit mostly because I wanted my little spider to be the center of attention! Below is my creation!




I love how it came out!! I moved the lolly off to the side so I could hang the spider down the center and he sparkles just so!  I also trimmed the silver web down to that I had a slimmer web and to add a bit of color I weaved the included ribbon around the inside edge.  Below are a close up of the lolly and the spider.

Lastly I wanted to share a card I created using some of the left over pieces I add the only thing I added was the silver paper base and a scrap of elegant eggplant paper.  Cute huh?!


I hope that you have enjoyed my projects as much as I have!!  I'll be excited to pull this wreath out year after year!  The next stop on the hop is Rhonda's blog The Stampin' Bunny!  She has some wonderful projects using For All Things!
