A Spooky & Spirited Wreath



Hello, everyone!  Today I am sharing a clean-and-simple
Halloween wreath that was created using the NEW "Spirited" Collection
by AUTHENTIQUE PAPER
 --See the entire collection HERE--

I started with a wire wreath base used in making the deco-mesh style wreaths. 
 I was going for a very clean design with the main focus on the center piece, 
so I left the base pretty plain with the exception of a some knotted ribbons
 and the tinsel stems that come all ready attached.

I love, love, LOVE this paper with the spooky house!  For some reason it just
 reminded me of watching Scooby Doo LOL  I cut the paper down a bit and
 matted it with a larger, coordinating piece of paper.  Next, I colored in the
 house with watercolor pencils by Faber Castell
A little spritz of lime-green was centered around the middle
 of the design to give a cast of moonlight!

Before attaching the paper to an 8X10 painter's canvas, I added a black
 glittered branch that I found at Michael's.  I hand-stitched the branch 
in place with needle and thread.


A simple title sticker was placed at the top with foam adhesive.  
To attach the canvas to the wreath base, I punched two holes at the top 
and then attached with two large rings. 
A couple of ribbon bows were tied on to the rings.

Thanks for letting me share with you today!  
I can't wait to hang this Spirited wreath up in my home!

Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
