Here we go! I bought my wreath from the floral department of my local big box craft store and I also picked up my ribbon there. That was all I needed to buy…see, I told you it was inexpensive!
- green floral wreath
- Halloween digital kit by Heather T
- black satin ribbon
- black feather trim
- detail scissors
- foam tape
- wrinkle ribbon
- distressing tool
- distressing ink and sponge
- Epson Premium Matte Photo Paper
- Photoshop Elements
The first job was to wrap the ribbon around the wreath to cover it completely. I used a straight pin to secure one end and wrapped away! The second end was also secured to the wreath with a straight pin.
Next, I wrapped some feather trim around the wreath, pinning again on each end. This added some spook to the wreath and also covered one tiny area that the ribbon didn’t.
I then set to work on the tags. I printed several of the digital tag images off after resizing them in Photoshop Elements. I also created a page in Photoshop Elements with all the images I wanted to use, and printed that as well. Using my detail scissors, I cut each out. Then I distressed them all using my Tim Holtz distressing tool that roughs up the edges and I also used Ranger Distressing ink on the edges, applying it with a sponge. The images were adhered to each tag using foam tape.
I added some wrinkle ribbon to each tag, using a lighter color to balance out all the black. The tags are adhered directly to the wreath with a strip of glue dots.
