I’m just going to say it, Halloween is not my favorite holiday.  Before you scream “WHAAAAT!!!!” here’s why.  I have a MAJOR SUGAR ADDICTION (as I write this I’m eating gummy bears) and this is the start of the season when I fight reaching into every bowl of candy and groping (without consent) every pie from here to New Year’s Day.  I’m miserable because once I give into that tiny bag of Skittles, it’s all over and I have to start wearing my big boy jeans.  NOT FUN AT ALL!  That said, I do like making wreaths so here are two that you can make for Halloween and Day of the Dead.  Remember, have fun, eat lots of candy and don’t forget to Make Your Mark!
Day of the Dead Wreath
Watch how to make this (and a few other things) here!
STUFF I USED

HERE’S HOW
1. & 2. Tape a pool noodle together to create a wreath
