Halloween Wreath….

Happy Friday!! I will have you all know that the stove is now fixed. Thank the good God that we did not have to buy a new stove. We were able to buy a replacement ceramic top and the Hubs was able to install it himself. So, spending $300 was better than the $1200 for a new stove!! Let’s hope that never happens again. I may need to lock my boys up until they are about 20!

On to happier things. As we are all loving Pinterest right now, I needed to try a quick project I saw a few days ago.  It is a wreath made from foam tubing. You know, that foam that covers the pipes in your home. Brilliant. Who thinks of these things??

tube

I bought the tubing at Lowe’s for $1….and I was actually able to make 2 wreaths from the one tube. I hit the Dollar Tree for some Halloween ribbon and trinkets. And I got some orange fabric at Joann’s. I cut the fabric into strips and wrapped it around the tube, adding hot glue along the way.  Glue your bow and scary spiders and your done. Simple and fun….all for only a few bucks. Gotta love it!!
