I began by taking an Ikea plastic frame, spray painting it white and draping a scrap of red fabric on it.

I took a block of dry floral foam and made a cage of chicken wire around it.

I secured the 'cage' of chicken wire with two chenille stems.

I then began arranging my artificial florals into the foam, beginning with some long drapey glittery black stems.

The next step was to add some creepy black and white leaves into the foam.

I filled in the floral foam with my red roses, and proceeded to use "s" pins to add some Spanish moss to hide any floral foam that was still visible.

    When I first look at it, I think that it looks so pretty but in keeping with the season. Then my eye focus' on that key with the skull in it - {{{shiver. shiver}}}. Great job.
