spooky+ cheap halloween wreath

this wreath cost less than $10 to make!
the ingredients:
one grapevine wreath ($3 on sale)
dollar store "happy halloween"sign ($1)
crows and other black birds purchased on clearance last year 
(.20-1.50 each)
cheap black ribbon ($2)
black spray paint (already had)
clearance christmas picks 
(already had, but i usually have a stash on hand for 
adorning christmas gifts)
i spray painted the wreath and the christmas picks,
and then started gluing!
i cut the ribbon in thin, jagged strips, and then scrunched it to look tattered and worn.
i'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.
it's just spooky enough, and i love that it is all black with just a touch of orange.
plus, it was cheap and easy!
