Halloween Wreath Project

Halloween Wreath Project DESIGNED BY HEATHER NUGENT Haunted house Simple yet spooky, this wreath will give trick or treaters or party goers a wickedly good welcome on All Hallows’ Eve Try glow-inthe-dark thread T he best part about Halloween – apart from the sweets, of course – is the chance to dress up in a fun and elaborate costume. Now you can dress up your home too with this scarily good wreath designed by the magical Heather Nugent. Revel in the supernatur­al spirit with this classic greeting and group of frightful friends – a grinning pumpkin, an eerie spider, a ghoulish ghost and a flying bat. You won’t need to be skilled in witchcraft to make this dark décor, just knowledgea­ble of whole stitch, fractional­s and backstitch. Best of all, this design uses special DMC Light Effects glow-in the-dark thread to bring the ghost to life and to add a glint to the bat’s and spider’s fangs, Factb Stitching Time Approx. 25-30 hours for the set Type of Stitches Cross stitch, fractional­s, backstitch Ease of Stitching Beginner/advanced beginner so even when the sun goes down this wreath will really stand out. Alternativ­ely, you can stitch these little motifs individual­ly to make homemade cards, or use some matching ribbon and a dowel rod to create a rather spooky hanging. Meet the designer Heather Nugent Halloween is a fun celebratio­n and I wanted to design a decoration you could bring out year after year. I’ve included glow-in-thedark thread too so the wreath will even look good during the witching hour! The World of Cross Stitching 76
