A Wreath out of What?What?

I used a pair of TIGHTS, stockings, hose whatever you want to call them!

I’ve had these for a couple of years.  I never found the occasion to wear them.  So I decided to use them on a  Halloween wreath!

 I cut the tights down the middle, wrapped them around the straw wreath and used straight pins to secure.

Purchased 2 hangings from Big Lots, separated them and attached with fishing line to the wreath.

I am going to give this to my daughter, I know my grandsons will love it!

The tights make the perfect accent for the boots!

She’s got those creepy eyes that seem to follow you.

Do you see what I mean??

She looks kinda good on my door.

But I guess, I’ll let the boys have her!

What do you use your tights for?  My little pretties!!

Best Witches to you!

I’ll be joining these lovely parties:
