Halloween Tow Rope Wreath
Tow rope gives this Halloween wreath its lovely orange color. To make it, you will need: Styrofoam wreath frame/Orange tow rope (75 to 100 feet depending on size of wreath frame)/Hot glue gun and glue sticks/Artificial leaves/Mini artificial pumpkins/White spray paint/Vinyl adhesive letters
Begin Wrapping the Wreath Frame
Attach one end of the tow rope to the back of the wreath frame (close to the bottom) with a hot glue gun. Allow it to cool and harden completely before proceeding. When cool, begin wrapping the rope around the frame. After every 6 passes, leave a triangular space the width of two passes to keep the rope perpendicular to the inside of the frame.
