Halloween Rewind: My Sentimental Halloween Wreath

I LOVE this wreath.  I have it hanging up right now.  I just haven’t gotten around to loading up the pictures of my recent Halloween decor.  So I thought, “ah-HA! I’ll have a Halloween rewind post”  Seriously though, this wreath is just too cute not to share again!  I know all of my pictures below are watermarked with the old blog name. Eh….that’s OK, right?

I made Alice this cute Halloween tutu when she was two years old

*sigh* OH, my cute lil girl!!  It’s also the FIRST tutu I ever made and her first tutu!!  Obviously, it doesn’t fit any longer.  So I came up with a way to SAVE it.  I made a Halloween Wreath out of it. Now we will always have that first lil tutu! 
It was really easy, too!  I just took off all the little strips. Which, if you follow 90% of the tutu tutorials out there, the strips will just slide off and open once you cut the elastic.  Then I used this wreath form. 

I realized I was going to have to cover the wreath with something.

I didn’t have any burlap.  I didn’t have any fabric or ribbon that I wanted to hide under tulle.  So, I tore strips of orange tissue paper and glued it to the wreath. Hey, it worked!

Then I tied the tulle strips on the wreath.  Then, I added an orange ribbon and made an orange moon and black bat out of some left over paint chip samples and glued that onto the wreath.  I pushed each knot just to the back side of the wreath and that is what created the wrapped look.

SO CUTE RIGHT??  I love it!
