Tulle Halloween Wreath

We are still in the process of decorating for Halloween, and I decided to make a wreath to hang on the door that leads to our basement.  I purchased three spools of tulle, a spool of orange ribbon and an 8 inch green Styrofoam wreath form.  When I purchased the wreath form I thought about painting it black, so that the green would not show through.  Then I remembered that I still had black Duck tape left over from my Candy Corn Wreath.  It worked perfectly.

First I covered the entire wreath in the black Duck tape.  Following that, I cut the tulle into strips of 32 inches long with pinking shears, then folded each strip in half length-wise and in half width-wise.  I tied the strips around the wreath using double knots, and bunched each tightly together with the next.  In total it took a little more than two spools of the tulle.

While this wreath is on our basement door, here's a shot of our foyer decorated and ready to greet trick or treaters!
