Halloween Wreath {aka Nevermore}

  I cannot think of a creepier, macabre author.  Poe instills a sense of dread and longing that fits my love of Halloween.  The opening stanza of “The Raven” starts with a knocking at the door. Seems fitting that I’m sharing my Halloween wreath with you today!

  1. I love it! What a good job!

  2. Jill I love everything about this wreath! It is so eye-catching with that gorgeous fabric and the raven sitting in the center,but for me what really sets it all off are those awesome feathers! So cool! “The Raven” is the classic Halloween poem!

  3. I love it Jill! And I’m glad you didn’t cut yourself with the knife :)

  4. Great project! I really like it! :)

  5. Absolutely LOVE it! Definitely has a vintage and classy feel. I might need to do something like this! I like the subtlety of your wreath.

  6. Nice one, Jill! Being a Ravens fan, I particularly appreciate this…I’m envisioning something similar but with a purple wreath for the team color…hmmmmmmm! Thanks for the inspiration! Stumble time!

  7. Oh my gosh Jill, that is just stunning! I love it! I’d be thrilled if you want to share it over at my link party that opened this morning: http://practicallyfunctional.net/2012/09/the-fun-in-functional-link-party-18/

    Thanks so much for sharing at Artsy Corner!

  38. I love the fabric you chose. Fantastic job. My weekly linky party–One Creative Weekend–has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit “One Creative Weekend” on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.

  39. This looks great! What a classy wreath!

  40. I love this wreath! Really nice fabric used. You can easily change it and make it look
    Christmasy. Thanks for sharing.

  41. It’s perfect! You already know I love it!

    Thanks for joining the party at Keep Calm and Link Up!

  42. This is such a pretty Poe wreath, Jill–as a former English grad student, I love this!

  43. This is a great wreath! I was looking at a few halloween themed tutorials but they all seemed super complicated and over-the-top. This one is perfect though; straight forward and classic :)

  50. Beautiful! Great Job!

  51. what size of wreath is it and is it foam?

    • Jill @ Create.Craft.Love. says:

      It’s the largest flat foam wreath round! Not sure on the size because it was over a year ago. I found mine at Michaels! =)

  52. Okay, I would love to try this. But where on earth did you find the fake raven? I’ve been searching craft stores with no luck.

    • Jill @ Create.Craft.Love. says:

      I found them at a place called Gardenridge that we have in St. Louis. You have to hit up Michaels pretty early in the season or they sell out!

  53. I’m in the process of making this now, but with different colors! So festive and classy! Thanks for sharing. Do you happen to remember how you secured the raven to the wreath form? I’m wondering if hot gluing the feet is enough to do the trick.

    Love, love this wreath. What a great idea. Happy I found your site
