Spook-tac-u-lar Day 10: Halloween Wreath and A Giveaway

Welcome back to Day 10 of the 31 Days of Spook-tac-u-lar Crafts with Jean and Rhonda.  Today is monday, so it is also time for a giveaway.  Make sure to check out the bottom of my post for details on today's giveaway, and when you are finished here hop over to see what Rhonda has to share with you at http://www.scraphappenswithrhonda.blogspot.com/.

For today's project, I have a Halloween wreath to share with you.
To make this, I started out with a blank wreath form and some white yarn.  I used hot glue to start the yarn and then used the glue as needed while wrapping the wreath.
Once the wreath was fully wrapped, I used hot glue to attach some fake spiders around the edges.

Now, for the letters, I used the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge to cut out the word EEK from black glitter cardstock.  I also cut it in three layers of cardstock and modpodged them all together to make the letters more sturdy.  Once they were finished, I hot glued them to the wreath.

 For the giveaway, I have some Halloween Stamps to give away to one follower.  The large stamp with the fence post is a Martha Stewart wooden stamp and the smaller ones are Studio G Stamps.  To be elgible for this giveaway 1) Become a Follower if you are not already and 2) Leave a Comment on this post.   I will take all comments through Thursday, October 13th and will announce the winner on Friday, October 14th.  I will use random.org to select the winner.  Good luck to everybody. :)

I am also entering this into the following challenge:

Like the wreath. Especially like the use of the white yarn. First I thought it was duck tape and the yarn gives the spidey look so much better. Thanks for giveaway chance.
