Halloween Paper Cone Wreath

Time to start putting up all my Halloween decorations!

I went to a local boutique store and saw a really cute Halloween paper cone wreath.
I snapped a picture on my phone and then went home and made a list of items I needed.

This is the wreath I took a picture of

Here is MY wreath:

A few things I learned from my first paper cone wreath:

1. Use cardboard as the base not a wreath form (the hot glue was melting my wreath form.
2. Get LOTS of glue sticks.

Here are the elements I used:

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the black card stock. 
Then I just added my elements to it. They came in my Halloween paper pack.

 You can see how I made my picket fence sign HERE.

You wont be sorry! Tons of cute ideas.

Fall Sign and Front Porch

Another Pinterest project here...Thats seems to be what makes up most of my projects these days. I see something darling on Pinterest and then I hack it for myself.

Here's the Pin that inspired this project.

And here's my version:

Cedar Pickets from Lowe's nailed to some scrap wood on the back.
(All of my photos were taken with my phone, I apologize)

 Painted base coat white, then slapped on some green in a few spots.

Then squirted on some brown craft paint straight from the bottle and just smoothed it out, then covered with a tan'ish cream color on the top. 

(I started paint the tan color over the brown before I got that picture with the brown on, So the corner is what it looked like before the tan color)

Used my Silhouette to cut out vinyl stencils for the words.
Adhering the stencil was AWFUL. 
The wood was to "dirty" so it was sliding around everywhere but I survived.
*All my paint I had on hand, I did not buy anything but the wood*

 Added to my porch!
I can't wait to add my pumpkins and gourds!

See how I made my wreath HERE
