My Front Door is Happy!

I have had a few Halloween Wreaths on my front door, 
but they always seem to look dated when I go to put
 them up the next season.
So, I once again, said that I was finished with crafting 
anything related to Halloween, and ended up making this wreath.

I bought a plain straw wreath and sprayed painted it black.

I made my festoon bunting
(see previous blog post titled : My version of orange and black to see how to make this,)
This vintage pumpkin head was on a broken body
 that I found at Hobby Lobby and got an extra 66 % off.
I then sawed the head off the body...

(No blood in involved in the dismemberment, but I did enjoy using a Hack saw!)
Here  is        "it's"        resting     place.

Time to get into character for the upcoming October 31st night!

I love your new wreath and the whole character get-up. The only element missing is painting your cat black.
