My sweet Father-in-Law saved an old cabinet door for me, and its been sitting in my garage forever. When I decided to create a new Halloween wreath, I knew I wanted to do something a little different than the traditional grapevine wreath I usually opt for. This door was the perfect base for my wreath!
Here is how it started. It had several layers of paint and a couple of weeks ago, I attempted to remove the paint. I didn't do the best job on it, so spray painting it black for this project was a perfect solution.

I also spray painted the red roses. I cut the heads off and hot glued them to the bottom left corner also:
Then I used floral wire and hot glue to position Lady McBones in place...every lady skeleton should have a fascinator and a string of pearls, right?
I made a bow for the top and added the center piece to hide the command hook. It was $1.99 hair clip, also from Michaels.
The sign is likely not weather resistant, so I wouldn't hang it where it will be exposed to rain or snow.
