Have I mentioned that Halloween is my favorite time of the year? Oh I have? Right. Well it is. I love when I see people incorporate their own style into holiday decorating. It makes a home feel a little less “bought” and a little more personal. After all, isn’t it so much more enjoyable coming home to a place filled with all of the things that you love?
I suppose it is no secret that I love all things western. I couldn’t wait to incorporate a little western flair into my Halloween decorating. I started with a fun Halloween Hoedown Wreath.
It is a collection of gingham and bandana… the perfect western touch for your Halloween door.
1 straw wreath (14 inch wreath shown here)
2 orange bandanas
2 black bandanas
.25 yard of black and white gingham fabric
.25 yard of orange and white gingham fabric
Cut the fabric with pinking sheers into 1-2 inch x 3-4 inch strips. Place the strips into piles.
Punch the center of the strip into the straw wreath with the screw driver.
Repeat step 2, intermixing the fabric for a nice blend of colors and patterns.
Tie the jute rope at the top of the wreath. Make a loop and cut any excess rope. This will allow for easy hanging.
Tie excess strips of fabric into knots around the loop.
Arrange the fabric strips to conceal the jute rope. Make sure there are no holes showing throw to the straw wreath.
You have a festive Halloween wreath… with just a touch of western fun. 😉
Happy Fall Y’all!
