I saw a handful of these Edgar Allen Poe Wreaths on Pinterest and knew I wanted to make one. In fact, I became a little obsessed and had some trouble getting interested in Canadian Thanksgiving until this wreath was finished. This was an easy little project and I had most of the items already on hand in my craft supplies. Including the sparkly raven that I bought last year at 50% off at the end of fall. Yay!
The price difference between Michaels in Canada and the USA is seriously ridiculous, isn't it?
All I did was wrap some sparkly spider web ribbon around the wreath form, overlapping to create little stripe like details. The ribbon didn't even require much glue since it just kind of stuck to the form.
I hot glued some black feather and bobble stuff to the side and glued a spider to the bottom of the stems to cover the wire part.
I used florist pins to hold the sparkly raven in place.
Then I used some chalkboard paint and covered a little sign, including the rope at the top. The hardest part of this wreath was waiting the 24 hours for the paint to dry until I could write on it. Seriously. I hate waiting for things to dry. I'm not sure I made it 24 hours. More like 4.
Once it was dry (finally!!), I just wrote "Nevermore" on the top and hung the wreath on the front door.
I'm obsessed with Halloween wreaths! I think they're my favorite things to make. Anyone else have this little obsession?
