I wanted to challenge myself this month to create a project without purchasing any new supplies, so I pulled out my Halloween craft bin and dug through its contents to get some inspiration.  Having seen quite a few feather wreaths on Pinterest recently, I selected black feather boas and some simple wooden shapes from my stash.

I started with a 12" Styrofoam Wreath form from Dow and wrapped four 6' long feather boas around the form, securing with Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue™.

I wanted a uniform look, so I painted all of the wooden shapes with Americana Paint from DecoArt in Canyon Orange.  For some extra sparkle I painted a Twinkle Sparkle Top Coat in Orange.

For the green glitter accents, I base coated some mini Styrofoam Balls with Aleene's Tacky Glue and rolled them in Bright Green Glitter.

Once all the shapes are dry, glue in place on the Wreath Form with Tacky Glue.  Cut a 20" length of orange fiber and secure one end to the back of the shape on the wreath and the other to the back of the spider shape.

The possibilities for this type of project are endless.  Use your imagination and the supplies around your home - or visit your local craft store and purchase these readily available craft supplies.

I hope you enjoyed my project today.  To view all of the other projects from the rest of the Designer Craft Connection group please use the HOP FORWARD and HOP BACK navigation in the DCC Icon in my right hand tool bar and ENJOY!
