Case in point...
On page 54 of this month's Martha Stewart Living, there's a black wreath covered in plastic snakes that I think would be an awesome door decoration for Halloween, which is quickly becoming my favorite holiday for decorating. I wish I had a scanner or could find the picture on Martha's website, but I can't.
The wreath was black, but so is my front door. I decided to go with gray/silver for my version. I assumed I could get everything I needed at Michael's (wreath, spray paint, rubber snakes), but Michaels was out of snakes. Perhaps there are others doing projects like this? Marc suggested we go to a dollar store and sure enough, we found plenty there.
Here are the supplies assembled and undergoing inspection by The Bear:
Here's where we stand now. Marc was pushing for orange. While that would have gone over quite well in Charlottesville (UVa's colors are blue and orange), I thought orange, plastic snakes would look a little cheesy. I think the gray is looking okay so far.
Tomorrow night, I'll attempt to attach the snakes to the wreath. I might have to invest in a slightly better glue gun. The last time I made a wreath, my fingers almost fell off from using my $4 glue gun.
