Enter If You Dare Halloween Wreath- Sweet Sassy Diva DT project

Today is my day to do the Design Team post at  Sweet Sassy Diva .  This week we were asked to make a wreath.  Please stop by to see more pictures and the directions for  this wreath.  It was a lot of fun to make.  

I went to the local Dollar Tree store and bought a wood wreath, foam sign and cool black netting for $1 each.  I spray painted the wreath with black paint and 
then  I wrapped and tied the netting to the wreath.  I then glue gunned the sign in the middle.  
Next I made my cuts with the Happy Hauntings, Pumpkin Carvings and October 31st cartridges.  
Here are detail pictures.  I used a lot of chalk on the edges and used white and light gray chalk to give the appearance of spider webs on the cuts.  
The recipe is as follows:
Happy Hauntings
cemetary gate 6 "
haunted house 10 "
witch and ghost 5 "
bats 3 and 2 1/2 "
October 31st
tree 10"
grave stones 3 "
cat and spider web 3"
Pumpkin Carvings
pumpkins 3"
I am also entering this in the Craft Junkie Too linking party, Passionately Artistic Link and Paper Issues Challenge for 31 days of Halloween.   
Made It Myself Monday  Linking Party 
Also the Cricut Circle Monthly Decor Challenge

I hope you enjoyed my wreath and will come back this week to SSD to see what the other designers create.
You are also welcome to stop by my blog anytime.  I love visitors and comments. Thanks for looking and Happy Craftin.
