Boo & Burlap Halloween Wreath

I'd love for you to share one of your pretties!
Please show some grace with these photos.  My SLR camera is out of commission for now (a little moisture at a soccer game can cause BIG my old, trusty point & shoot will have to do for now.)
To make the wreath I used a large grapevine wreath, orange burlap, black burlap, thick chip board letters, scrap paper, mod podge, modeling paste, acrylic paint & ribbon.
 Its pretty self-explanatory, but just in cut the burlap into strips and double knot around the wreath. 
The chip board was painted with black acrylic paint then scrap paper was added with mod podge.  Some texture was added with modeling paste.  The letters were aged and the textured defined by a thin wash of black and burnt umber paint.
Finally, simply tie the letters on with ribbon.

I'm not sure this wreath is complete, but its better than what has been up there for the last few weeks....nada.
Happy Fall!

Don't forget to come back October 3rd thru October 9th for the Pretty Packages Party!
