I had tucked last year's live Christmas wreath in the back of our carport thinking I'd take it apart and, well, I guess taking 9 months to do that isn't awful, right? Anyway, I took it apart to find this metal wreath inside:
I then pulled out my ball of purple t-shirt yarn and cut it to about 6 inch lengths . . . many many many pieces. I also created some black as well as some white t-shirt yarn. I started out by tying one small strip on to the outside ring:
and continued to tie one after another after another after another ...
until I had tied pieces on all around both rings
Then I set the project aside until inspiration hit while at the grocery store. My store carries lots of non-grocery items as well and all their Halloween stuff is already marked down so I picked up a pack of glittery spiders. I used the same twist-ties that held them onto their packaging to hold them onto my wreath. Finally, I found a "Happy Halloween" I liked in the Silhouette store and created that in orange.
