Boneyard wreath

I have a very cool Hallowe’en wreath to share with you today!  We’re calling this our Boneyard Wreath.   I wasn’t sure how this one was going to turn out because quite honestly, when I got the idea to paint some pasta “bones” the other day, I didn’t even know what we were going to do with them.

Painting the bones was fun and easy.  We poured a few different types of pasta into plastic containers, drizzled  some white paint over the pasta (we used leftover white latex paint but you could use acrylic craft paint), popped the lids on the containers and did gave them a good shake.

We spread our “bones” out on a styrofoam tray (it dried quickly), and left it for a couple of days while I thought what to make with them.

Today I cut some “wreaths” out of light-weight cardboard (think cereal box), and the Hooligans painted them with black Tempera paint.

I set out some googly eyes and and some foam Hallowe’en craft pieces, and the kids had a grand old time gluing the “bones” onto the wreath and adding their spooky accessories.

We punched a hole in the top of each wreath, and looped a piece of purple ribbon through for hanging.

How simple was that? And FUN, and so cool!?

For the record, this next one is the one that I made, to give you an idea of how you can really load up your Hallowe’en wreath with those “bones”.

Happy Hooliwe’en!
