Halloween door decor…

I have been trying to figure out the perfect idea for our front door
to share our love for Halloween
I did not want to spend a lot of money and really wanted to make it myself.
shocking I know.
I have a huge obsession with embroidery hoops right now
and seem to have an abundance of them in all sizes

I also have an obsession with yarn wreaths.
I fell in love with my fall wreath
I did not have the heart to remove the pretty flowers

I was at out local Goodwill and saw some yarn for really cheap.
the colors were perfect for Halloween

I bought it thinkning I would make another yarn wreath.

instead I chose to wrap 3 hoops with the yarn.

The first Hoop in turned into a spider web adn added the word Boo with white felt

The second hoop I wrapped in orange and made ea cute little jack o lantern

and last but not least
he may be my favorite
I wrapped the smaller hoop with white and made a mummy and,  using orange buttons for his eyes

what do you think?
