Tutorial Tuesday: Halloween Wreaths

Dollar Store Crafts is a great blog for anyone who loves getting crafty but is on a budget. This tutorial for adorable retro Halloween wreaths caught my eye because of its use of Dover clip art, obviously, but when I looked closer and realized the "flowers" are actually stacked cupcake wrappers I just knew I had to share! Coming in at just over $12 (our clip art is only $0.99 per sheet) this is a fun, affordable project...and you can save even more money by printing clip art on cardstock!

And, don't let your imagination stop at Halloween- you could adapt this tutorial for any occasion. Think pink wreaths with bunnies for Easter! Red wreaths with hearts for Valentine's Day! DoverPictura has all the clip art you need to stay festive throughout the year.
