Guest Post: Fall Wreath Tutorial

Hi OSAHM readers!

I’m Kelly and I blog over at The Moon and Me where I

tend to ramble about all things yummy, crafty and DIY.

I’m excited to be here today and share my rhyming Halloween wreath tutorial with you.

So here goes…

 

The Moon and Me: A Halloween Wreath

As the time drew nigh on Hallowe’en

I thought a wreath might be quite keen.

Hence, a circle made of vine,

and some fabrics oh so fine.

While assembling my loot,

a furry helper came to snoop.

She’s all thumbs, or it’d be fun

if she could wield the hot glue gun.

Then I made my fabric strips,

doing so with violent rips.

So the edges would be frayed,

See? My furry helper stayed.

 So I wrapped them round and round,

till all the vine was good and bound.

Securing every turn or two

with some handy dandy glue.

Half-way through I start to sweat…

How much fabric did I get?

Will there be enough to finish?

Will my confidence diminish?

But, alas, no fear was needed.

For my wreath is now completed.

Embellish some and off we go…

Hey…I see a little crow!

Roll some flowers from some scraps,

add them here and there, perhaps.

Use some more to make the bow,

hang it high or hang it low.

 This small bird has come to nest

hoping now to get some rest.

Little does he know his fate,

ghouls and goblins lay in wait.

The Moon and Me: A Halloween Wreath

For soon they’ll come with faces sweet,

trolling for some trick or treat!

And he will have no place to go

while the pumpkins are a-glow.

So he will have to sit some more

hanging out upon my door.

Till the ghosts are on their way

and end the night with All Saints’ Day.

 If you made it to the end…

I applaud you, my dear friend. :)

I think all that rhyming made my head hurt.

Just so you know…I don’t always rhyme…hardly ever really.

You don’t have to take my word for it,

you can check me out on Facebook, Bloglovin’, Pinterest,

and my home away from home…The Moon and Me.

Thanks, Tara, for having me over today!
