Halloween Wreaths

 Decorative wreaths aren't just for winter holidays! I was super inspired by a card Yana Smakula shared where she used winter/Christmas products to make a spooky Halloween wreath. I had to create one myself immediately!

These cards use a lot of older products that may not still be available (I'll share similar options) but that's kind of the point... mix and match whatever winter wreath items you have on hand with your Halloween products.

Of course I had to use my favorite wreath die from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit from November 2022. You should vote right now to bring it back! (I made dozens and dozens of holiday cards with this kit last year). To make it spooky, I used black and glittery orange cardstock, accented with some light pink berries colored with Copics

The main stamp is this gorgeous Color Layering Moth stamp from Hero Arts. An online search will show a few shops still carry it... an alternative could be this layered butterfly. The moth is stamped with Hero Arts inks in Tangerine, Caramel, and Peach. And how cute are those little ghosts?! These are actually from Graveyard Icons Mini Tub - a wood block tub that I purchased a long time ago for my classroom. I really wanted a simple simple sentiment, so I opted for Happy Halloween from Lawn Fawn's Booyah set. All images were stamped with Hero Arts Intensified Black Ink.

I made two more simpler versions without the moth. I used little skulls and mini pumpkins, also from the wood block tub set.

Happy Halloween!
