Craft Scraps + Wreath + A Halloween Club Ornie = A Handmade Gift ‘from your hands and heart’….. for a Friend!

$5 Smiles (2)

I don’t know a single crafter who doesn’t have a full stash of left over craft scraps waiting for a purpose.  We keep each scrap…knowing it will be useful one day.

This craft scrapp-y wreath…is just that, made from scraps!

….and having knowledge of the Decorative Arts, well, that is the icing on the cake.  Paint with us a few ornies from the ‘Classic Halloween Ornie Club’…you could make alott-a fun craft scrappy Halloween wreaths!

Really…the Halloween Ornie can be replaced with any fun ‘focal point’…a keepsake ornament, a hand-painted wood-turning, a vintage bell, a framed photo….you get the picture.

With a few supplies and craft scrappy-s, you can make the bestest ‘not so cheesy’ handmade gift for a friend ……. just to make them smile.

This simple wreath was created with a grapevine wreath, an ornie, a few sticks from the woods, craft scraps and a little bit of creativity.

I created the wreath around the The Classic Halloween Ornie Club Ornie….never to late to join the club!  Check below for details……and picking and choosing as I shopped my craft room stash for leftovers.


To start I added a few extra collected sticks to a grapevine wreath,  spray painted it flat black and added a touch of spray glitter, then assembled.

As you can see I created the wreath a few different ways using only what I had available in my own craft stash.

Baker’s twine and scrapbooking paper made up the garland.

Newspaper yarn for an added touch, purchased at the ‘Yarn Nook Summer Shanty Studio’ in Tamaqua PA a few years back……what a fun find from a favorite shop and finally a purpose.

 a few ‘vintage-look-a-like’ cloths pin were added….just because.

Bows were created with scraps of hand dyed wool, glad I didn’t part with it.

So what kind of fun leftover craft scraps to you have to make-up a wreath?

All you need is a wreath, a focal point (like the ornie) and craft scrappy-s!
