Happy Halloween!

I love, love, love Halloween!  I have been so busy planning for Halloween and enjoying fall that I have forgotten to post.  Ekk! 
 

Here is a look at some of the things I've been up to this week.

I had been rehearsing to be in the 11th annual Thriller Parade (on my 30 before 30). Love the t-shirt design this year!



 
Here is my husband and I as superheroes.

 

 
And then finally the night of the parade.  It was cold but awesome.

 
This was taken after.  I survived!!

 
Happy Halloween!!!!

More Halloween Wreaths

Here are two more wreaths I have started. For these I used deco mesh. First I added pipe cleaners to a wreath form and then used a wide roll of deco mesh. You attach the mesh with the pipe cleaner and gather as you go. 
 
 
 
 

 
 

 
 

 
 

 
This is once around the inside.

 
And then once around the outside.

 
I added a bow, but I still feel like it needs a little something.

 
The other wreath I used a more narrow mesh. This is around the inside and outside, but it didn't seem full enough so I went around again going from inside to out side, back and forth.

 
 

 
It still needs a lot but I haven't really figured out what. Maybe some of these leaves and ribbon.
