Wonderfully Wicked Coffin Wreath ...

I am SOOOO excited about what I get to share with you today!  I even love the story of how this wreath came to be.  It all started with the FABULOUS wreath in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog (page 52-53) that was created with the COFFIN TREAT BOXES!!!  First of talented friend Leana, one of Stampin' Up!'s Concept Artists, made that stunning wreath!!!  Beautiful creations made by friends are always special to me! friend, Carl, made a few of the wreaths himself and that inspired me to not just stare at the beauty, but make my own!  Yay!  Thanks, friends!  💖

So I posted this on IG & FB the other day...

 "Any guesses on what I am FINALLY getting around to making?!" 

I was so excited to get started on it!  I was so excited, in fact, that I ended up not being able to stop until I was done!  😀  Hee.  I honestly didn't have much of a plan when I started.  But it took a totally different direction from what I had in my head.  And I ♡ LOVE ♡ how it turned out!!!

Are you as in love as I am?!  😀 Hee.  All the gold stamped boxes are embossed with gold embossing powder.  The white ones are embossed with white embosssing powder.  Then I used the Stylish Scrolls Embossing Folder for all the other coffins.  ALL the boxes are sponged with Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink Pad.  😍

Also...I completely copied the focal point that Leana did on her wreath because I thought it was perfect...

True story...I haven't really decorated for Halloween this year it is nice to at least be able to hang this FABULOUSLY FESTIVE wreath on my front door! 

(It was also on display for the Holiday Crafting Extravaganza that I did this weekend...more on that event coming!)

Thank you for visiting!  Please let me know if you have any questions!
