I had some crafty fun last night and made an inexpensive wreath for Halloween.

What you need is pretty simple and inexpensive....

you need a orange plastic table cloth
about 2-3 black plastic bags
a form..I used a wire floral form
scissors to cut the plastic
and doodads to go in the middle

You want to cut your plastic bags and table cloth into 5-6 inch strips about 2" wide.
Start tying them on!

This takes a bit of time but I found several episodes of The Big Bang..so I was set!
When your done...fluff it up and add other things to it or leave it as is. Looks good either way...I think. It'll withstand the wet weather as well.
I wanted to add some other stuff to it...so....I did.

Glitter....everything is better with glitter.  I also added some little sparkly bats and a ghosty kitty to make it a little more spoooooky!
Now I have a fun little spoooooky Halloween wreath that didn't cost and arm and leg.

Stealing?!  HA HA!   Plus...I got the idea here...http://www.craftbits.com/project/halloween-coat-hanger-and-bags-wreath?utm_campaign=cb&utm_medium=email&utm_source=031011NS  

It's soooo inexpensive to make...if you have a dollar store around you this could probably be made under $5.oo  and if anyone has kids..it's a great activity to keep little hands busy.  Ideas for the center? little ghosties made with white trash bags...little foam spiders.. a foam witches hat...or nothing! Still looks really cool!
