My Halloween Wreath.....

I needed a Halloween wreath for my front door, so I made my own! I used the Crafty Secret's Postcard kit, and some pretty fall picks. I hot glued them into the grapevine wreath. It was really pretty fast and easy to make! : )

When working with the postcard kits, I use Modge Podge to adhere the paper to the chipboard. When it is dry, I use a sanding block to sand the edges. Sometimes I leave the edges white, sometimes I distress them with brown ink. It's just a preference. :)

Well....my van is in the shop......again. I was on my way to Miracles Happen baseball on Saturday when it was making a very loud thumping noise. So needless to say, we didn't make it to baseball and I took the van in. I am hoping it is nothing major. I swear I need a part time job just to pay for the van's repairs! Errrgh!

So keep your fingers crossed that it is nothing too expensive!

Love what you did with the wreath. Hope the van is an inexpensive repair. We have a car that requires it's own income too! UGh.
