Gauze Candy Corn Wreath

It has been well established that I enjoy a craft challenge.

Wade takes advantage of this to get me to use up things I am hording have too many of and likes to bring weird items home from work.

Like, for example, thousands of gauze pads. 

Of course, don’t your husbands bring such things home?

Turns out they can’t use them at his work anymore because they are transitioning to the individually wrapped ones that are sterile, so he had to get rid of them.

I am sure a light bulb went off in his head.

I happily accept this challenge and since I had a wreath form lying around- I put the two together and came up with this:

Pretty cute I think!

I used my favorite straw wreath from that is only $4 at the craft store, and you just keep the plastic on so that it is less messy. Then I did the standard scrunch and glue that you do for these types of wreaths, about a thousand times.

Just make sure you add your ribbon before you are completely done so you can cover that too!

And then when you are done it looks like this! I finished this one in under 24 hours, that is a record! I must be getting pretty quick at this!

Then it went out to the garage for a spray paint treatment in candy corn colors.

And on my front door!

And I paired it with some wooden 2×4 pumpkins with wine cork stems.

I wish I had a bigger porch that could handle more decorations, but I am pretty happy with the way this turned out!
