This week is the Halloween Bash Blog Hop! A bunch of amazing bloggers have joined forces to give you TONS of fun projects and tutorials this week. Click around at the end of this post to see all the fun!
For this blog hop, I drew on the influence of one of my favorite writers, Edgar Allan Poe and his poem “The Raven.”
I started by spray painting a grapevine wreath black. It immediately transformed the wreath from rustic to creepy.
I embellished the wreath with a few things that reminded me of “The Raven.” Clearly the black bird was a must! Hi there.
I also had a black boa that I chopped up and used to echo the feathers of the raven.
To create the word NEVERMORE, I used my trusty Cricut Explore. You can download the file here to cut them yourself! I cut two of the same files on thick card stock, and then spray-glued them together to give it a little durability. Then I hot-glued the letters to the feathers.
I also hot-glued a white feather to the wreath to echo Poe’s quill. I even colored the tip of the quill black with a Sharpie.
As a final detail, I added a bit of black ribbon cut into swallowtails to the back.
My literary heart loves this wreath!
