Whoooo's there? An owl perched on this spooky dried grapevine wreath, and a full moon lighting the night sky.

Introduction

This idea comes from our friend Manal Aman.

materials

  • Black grapevine wreath

  • Coiled garland with orange glitter

  • Artificial black floral stem

  • Decorative owl (Pictured: Small natural sisal snowy owl, 4.72-inches-by-3.54-inches-by-4.33 inches, $9.99 michaels.com)

  • Gold faux leather fabric

  • Scissors

  • Pliers

  • Hot-glue gun

steps

  1. Make the full moon by tracing any large round object onto the faux leather fabric; cut out. (Tip: Our moon measures 5 inches in diameter.)

  2. On the grapevine wreath, see if there are any large branches sticking out. If so, pull the branch out further so it hangs in the center of the wreath as shown (this is where you will glue your moon). Then wrap the coiled garland around a portion of your wreath opposite from where the moon will hang.

  3. Hot glue the moon onto the branches that hanging out. If needed, you can bend this branch into a slight "L" shape so your moon has a little more support.

  4. Use pliers to cut the decorative floral stem to look like a tree, appropriate for the size of the wreath.

  5. Hot glue the tree to the back of the wreath. (Tip: To secure it from falling backwards, undo the wrapped garland and rewrap the garland while tightly encompassing the tree with it.)
