Recycling Halloween Spirits!

Recycling Halloween Spirits!

I love Halloween, it is a wonderful holiday filled with creativity and fun. I love the costumes and all of the camaraderie that we all share.

I love creating unique items for my Halloween décor. So this year I decided it was time to use those junky paper sales flyers in my newspaper for something fun.

A Haunted Wreath!


So easy and fun to make!


one wire hanger bent in a ring

bottle of acrylic paint

squares of junk paper with a slit cut in

Pearl Paper to make the ghost

Craftwell eBosser

Teresa Collins assorted embossing folders


Lots of fun.

Steps: Take the bent hanger and paper squares. I tear a hole in the center of each of the paper squares and coat them with acrylic paint. I use my hands and get covered with paint. I love doing this. Now at first you will think it won’t work and then all of the sudden the papers dry up  and start filing out your wire form.



I love the texture from the acrylic on the junk paper. I let some of the type show thru and it makes a wonderful indoor decorating item. Once dry then you can put on your embellishments.

I chose to make ghosts and leaves to haunt my wreath. I applied the texture to the paper first. I love my Teresa Collins Embossing Folders, and I used them to texture my ghosts.


I used the Stardust and Décor Circles to emboss my Ghost. Then I smeared colored glitter glue on all. I love my wreath and can’t wait to make more of them. Please join me in using items that we normally throw away to create fun.

See you next week!
