A Halloween Wreath ~ and a Tutorial Rhyme

As the time drew nigh on Hallowe'en
I thought a wreath might be quite keen.

Hence, a circle made of vine,
and some fabrics oh so fine.

While assembling my loot,
a furry helper came to snoop.

She's all thumbs, or it'd be fun
if she could wield the hot glue gun.

Then I made my fabric strips,
doing so with violent rips.

So the edges would be frayed,
See? My furry helper stayed.

So I wrapped them round and round,
till all the vine was good and bound.

Securing every turn or two
with some handy dandy glue.

Half-way through I start to sweat...
How much fabric did I get?

Will there be enough to finish?
Will my confidence diminish?

But, alas, no fear was needed.
For my wreath is now completed.

Embellish some and off we go...
Hey...I see a little crow!

Roll some flowers from some scraps,
add them here and there, perhaps.

Use some more to make the bow,
hang it high or hang it low.

This small bird has come to nest
hoping now to get some rest.

Little does he know his fate,
ghouls and goblins lay in wait.

For soon they'll come with faces sweet,
trolling for some trick or treat!

And he will have no place to go
while the pumpkins are a-glow.

So he will have to sit some more
hanging out upon my door.

Till the ghosts are on their way
and end the night with All Saints' Day.

If you made it to the end...
I applaud you, my dear friend. :)

I think all that rhyming made my head hurt.

This wreath was greatly inspired by Desiree at The 36th Avenue.

Have a sweet one!

  8. I saw your wreath over at Serenity Saturdays' linky party. Little did I know I would also find a poem, one so hearty.
    The wreath does prepare your door for the night of Halloween. In fact, your entire porch looks most keen.
    I became a new follower of your's on Google. If you could do the same, I would sound the bugle.
