Boo Halloween Wreath

Make this wall hanging in fall colors and then hang it on your wall, door, or in a window.  Use cardboard letters for an easy, inexpensive Halloween decoration.  You can buy wooden letters at craft stores if you want to make a more durable decoration.  This is a good project for first time Mod Podge users.  It is easy enough to do with children.  They will have fun with the cutting and gluing although they may not have the patience to finish the entire project.
