I love Halloween so much and every year it seems like the selection in the stores gets worse and worse, so I decided to make my own vintage styled wreath.

I used this tutorial to make the tulle wreath base and just started adding more and more.

I really like the glitter and crepe paper ruffles, but I'm not sure about the Happy Halloween banner.  I haven't permanently attached it yet, so I can still take it off.  What do you guys think, keep it, leave it off, or try something else?  Any other suggestions?  Thanks  Cheesy

I think the whole thing is fantastic! I especially like the rolled up pages of a book going all the way around. How did  you attach those to the wreath without mashing down the tubes of paper?

Great job!

I rolled up the book pages, stapled them at the bottom and then hot glued them to the back of the center piece, it's just a piece of cardboard.  They are mashed down around the center, but it's hidden by the cardboard and crepe paper ruffles.

I have more photos on my blog, if you would like to see some progress shots.
