Halloween Ghost Wreath

I'm not sure why I never made a Halloween wreath last year, but it was long overdue. I browsed pinterest for awhile to look at different themes for a wreath. I typically love the candy corn colors, but was quickly drawn to a more simplistic gray and black wreath with a spooky character. I decided on ghosts! Here's what you need (plus black felt not pictured):

First I spray painted the wreath, making sure to get all the nooks and crannies.

While that was drying I got to work on my ghosts. I google searched images for ghosts and found a few silhouettes that I liked. I printed them out and pinned them to my felt and cut around the edges. I used black felt for a back ground, white felt for the ghosts, and my sparkly ribbon between the two felts for their eyes and mouth.


                            

Then I assembled the wreath by adding some more of the dark sparkly ribbon, and pinning the ghosts to the wreath. It took a few tries, but I found a spot where I liked them. I used my orange and black ribbon to hang the wreath and add a bow. 




How do you think it turned out? I love the simple colors and the ghosts really pop!
