DIY Nightmare Before Christmas: Man - Eating Wreath

I love Christmas Time, I'm also a Halloween addict so making this made my heart grow 3 sizes!

What's great about the Nightmare Before Christmas is that you can enjoy the decorations and movie during Halloween through Christmas!

Lets skip the long intro and get to How I made the Man - Eating Wreath!
                                                
 
What you will need:

Hot Glue Gun
Cardboard
Yellow Acrylic Paint
Black Acrylic Paint
White Acrylic Paint
Paint Brush
Exacto Knife
Plain Wreath
Long Wreath Strips
Wreath Door Hanger
Bow
Red Berry Ornaments
Sharpie

This took me about 30 to 45 minutes to do once everything dried. Also cost me about $25 to make! Everything that is Christmas is Half Off at Hobby Lobby!

*Please note that you need to wait for your Teeth & Eyes to dry before hot gluing them to your Wreath.

Each tooth make sure they are long, remember you are gluing them to the back in the inside.

Draw with a Sharpie an outline of the Teeth and Eyes, then cut out using a Exacto Knife

 
Once everything is cut out the painting begins. Remember to let these fully DRY! I put 2 coats on.
 
 
While the Teeth and Eyes are drying you can start putting your bow & ornaments on. I had a glittery twisty tie bow so all I did was stick it thru the wreath and tied it in the back.
 
 
I had 2 Wreath Strips that I stuck thru the back to the front, I maneuvered it to look like 4 arms attacking.. 
 
 
Once everything dried start HOT GLUING!!
 

 
 
 
 
 
HAPPY CRAFTING!!
