Halloween Wreath by KATIE

Ah, it is officially Fall now and that makes me soooo happy!!!  Fall is my FAVORITE season!  And I am having so much fun creating some Halloween projects, which is so much easier with the help of my Gazelle.  I made this fun Halloween Wreath for our front door...
To start, I used the circle function in Funtime and simply drew a large circle and a small circle and positioned them to create the wreath.  Then I cut 2 layers of thin chipboard with my deep cut blade and one layer from patterned paper then adhered them all together.  I made a varitey of sizes of rosettes from patterned paper and cardstock.  For some added detail, I added Flower Soft to the rosette centers and sprinkled a bit of irridescent glitter over them.  For the white rosette center, I wanted to add a bit of color so after my glue dried, I airbrushed it with a Copic Marker then topped it off with a large rhinestone.  To further embellish the wreath, I added the Ghost Pumpkin and Bat then enlarged the Boo to fill in the center of the wreath.  I removed the center from the second 'o' and replaced it with the *new* Witch file.  I used some Silver and Purple glitter paper to add a little zing to the letters and topped the wreath off with a raffia bow.
Now my front door is all ready for some trick-or-treaters!!
