1. Tie a knot at the top in the center of the wreath.
2. Take the string and make a series of loops around the center of the wreath. Make the last loop about a 1/2 to 1 inch from the top.
3. Place the second series of loops in the center of the previous loops.
4. Continue with looping the string around and around until you get to the very center of the wreath. Loop twice around before knotting the string into place. Use the scissors to trim off the leftover string.
2. Tuck the ends of the tulle into the grapevine wreath and secure them with a dab of hot glue.
1. Cut the hanger into 3 pieces.
2. Use the pliers to bend the hanger.
3. The size of the handle determined the size of the blade. Big handle means big blade.
4. Place the hanger on a the duct tape. Make sure to only cover the handle area.
5. Turn the hanger over so that the other side is covered with duct tape. Try to keep the sides even.
6. Use the scissors to trim off any extra duct tape.
7. Place the hanger on a the duct tape. Make sure to only cover the blade area.
8. Turn the hanger over so that the other side is covered with duct tape. Try to keep the sides even. Repeat till you have the desired size of the knife.
9. Use the scissors to trim off any extra duct tape.
1. Use the sand paper in the areas where you will be using the hot glue. Then hot glue the dowels in place before using the jute to tie on the sign onto the frame. It doesn't have to be completely even.
2. Tie a piece of jute on the sign in order to hang the sign on the bow. Don't knot it completely on this side and leave a little extra string in order to help center the sign in the middle of the wreath. In the front and back, I painted the sign and dowels with black craft paint.
3. Use the red puffy paint to create a message. Finger paint the red puffy paint on all the knives. Then glue the 2 remaining knives on the sign.
4. Hang the sign up on the bow. Make sure it rest in the center of the wreath.
Finally, hang this horrifyingly scary wreath up on your front door and let the gasps and screaming begin! Muah-ha-ha!
Have a fun and safe Halloween everyone!
