Howlstooth & Scaringbone Halloween Medallion Wreath

A quick post today to share a beautiful Halloween wreath that I saw at Ronda Wade's Creative Convention…

I've seen lots of fun medallion wreaths out there for all kinds of occasions—fall, christmas, birthday—and I think they are amazing!  I'm going to have to try one soon!  From what I hear, they really aren't difficult, they just take a little time, and a lot of hot glue! 

This wreath is done with the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper, and each of the medallions is decorate with a fun, not-so-scary Halloween image.  I see Googly Ghouls (with Googlies eyes) layered on Labels Collection Framelits, Spooky Bingo Bits punched with the 1" Square Punch, and Mixed Medley images on the he new 1-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch, among other accent variations. 

The wreath's bow is made with the new Cotton Ribbon, colorfully stamped with the Border Banter stamp set.

Make Your Own Medallion Wreath: For the easiest medallion-making, you'll want to have the Designer Rosette XL Die.  That's what was used on this project.  It die-cuts and scores all those accordion fold lines for you—that saves tons of time!  You can choose from two decorative edges, the scallops or points, depending on which side of the die you use.  And it's easy to vary the sizes of your medallion by using different widths of your strips of paper that you die-cut. 

If you don't have the Rosette Die, the second best tool is the Simply Scored scoring board.  Simply cut your 12" paper strips to any size width, score at every 1/2", accordion fold, and adhere the ends into the lolly shape. 

Once you get all your medallions all decorated and ready to go, simply hot glue them into place around any wreath form from your local craft store.  Patty Bennett has a very helpful tutorial about it, and she's made some fabulous wreaths for Fall and Christmas: Christmas Medallion Wreath Tutorial

What a fun project!  Hope you enjoyed it!
