Halloween & Fall Wreaths

As the cool, crisp air approaches and with the holidays right around the corner, it's time to start thinking about Fall/Halloween decorations. Fall is my favorite time of the year!! From the nice weather, to boots, scarfs, and pumpkin pie or pumpkin spice latte;) I look forward to it every year.
I especially love decorating for it!
Since my child is only 4 we don't get too scary with Halloween decorations. When she is older though we will! Think graves, smoke, strobe lights, and haunting music! Since I am a huge horror movie fan I definitely look forward to it:)
I choose to go with a monochromatic color scheme, I'm not real big on the purple, orange, and green Halloween. I like a more "scary" old feel. I took my daughter with me for help with the front door wreath and surprisingly she choose these little skulls from Michael's. Yay!!!
I made a 16" burlap rag wreath and a chevron and skull bow
(all items found at Hobby Lobby and Michael's)

I added the skull, black roses, and a burlap rose, then I made some little chevron rosettes, using left over Chevy burlap ribbon.

I made, then printed out the beware sign, using card stock and my home printer.
Then I burned it with a lighter to give it an aged look.

I think it turned out awesome:)
For my Fall wreath I wanted to keep it rustic, but sophisticated.
I choose creamy white to go with the burlap. I think it turned out beautifully.

Happy decorating:)
