It's a Boo-tiful Wreath - Imaginisce style

Hello blogging friends! I love decorating for Halloween. It's such a fun holiday. My kids are too old, but I love seeing my neighbor kids dressed up in their costumes. This year my dog Satchel is going to be dressed as a bug. The kids get such a kick out of seeing him all dressed up too. He likes to help me answer the door so he can say Hi. :) 

I was dying to make a Halloween wreath this year after seeing some really spooktacular ones last year. Here is what I came up with ....

I just love how it turned out!  This picture doesn't do it justice. Let me show you some close-ups ...

Imaginisce tools make it so easy. I used my CutBright rotary cutter to cut the tulle into strips. and the i-Bond cordless glue gun to make sure everything was secure.

The tulle strips were cut 6" x 15" and then folded lengthwise in half, then folded in half again. The strips are then tied around a styrofoam wreath that I painted black. Then it was ready for embellishing. I attached my bow and picks using wire, but to make sure they wouldn't slide, I used my i_Bond cordless glue gun. The raven and skull were also glued on with the i_Bond. I love that this glue gun is cordless! 
I created my Boo Banner using papers from the Black Ice and Bushel O' Fall collections and some cardstock and strung it together using some Twinery bakers twine.  My i-Rock and some metallic hot rocks give my Boo banner some elegance. 
It really helped to tie it together with the bow and picks I selected. They matched perfectly! i_Rock hot rocks and gems come in so many different colors that there is sure to be one to coordinate with your projects.

Imaginisce Supplies: Pattern paper: Black Ice and Bushel O' Fall; i-Rock; Metallic Hot Rocks; i-Bond; CutBright Rotary Cutter and Mat
The Twinery: bakers twine in charcoal; 12" styrofoam wreath; black spray paint; Celebrate It: Halloween Wired Ribbon and picks; Raven and Skull; Cricut Expression; Art Philosophy and Paper Doll Dress Up cartridges; wire
