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.

What a great wreath! Your porch looks so inviting. Thank you for sharing. Visiting from Nifty Thrifty Things. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House which goes live at 8am CST on Monday. http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com Hope to see you at the bash!

What a great Halloween wreath. The contrast of papers, patterns, and colors are perfect.

Love this- I have a dark door and I am always looking for light color ideas that will stand out on my door.

This turned out so great! Thanks for the tip on the cardboard did you just use a big cardboard circle to start from? I am wanting to make a Thanksgiving wreath from book pages and this gives me some great ideas!

Cute!! Great job, and it's nice to know I'm not the only one that snaps pictures of stuff I want to copy later. Although the later doesnt always happen.

Gorgeous and so unique! My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.

I love the papers. It's different from the traditional wreaths and I like that. If you get a chance I would love for you to come link up at my Halloween Edition Pin Party.
