A little batty!

I saw a wreath made out of book pages on pintrest and decided to duplicate it.
I did not have a fancy punch so I just free handed the pieces.
I love the way it turned out.

So here is how I made it.

I cut tons of wavy circle pieces,
And glued them to a cheap willow wreath I got from the dollar store.

I continued until it was compleatly full.

I then cut bats out using this template put crystal eyes on them then glued them to the wreath.

I love how the crystals look on the bats.

It looks lovely on my front door.
This wreath was simple and easy to make.

This is really fantastic I love the wreath idea I'm thinking I could adapt it for Christmas.
'Im astounded that you have 8 children and yet still have craft time me i have two and essentially grown up 20 and 24 but I always have to squeeze my crafting in. I always thought as they got older there be less to do but now they have busy lives they seem to suck me into their stuff too. I'm not complaining though I'd hate not to be needed. ha ha
I do have a crafting blog You'll have to give it a look.
I'm into all crafting but at the moment been doing a lot of cooking, but also have a lot of other stuff going on so come pay a visit
