As all crafty Halloween lovers know, Martha Stewart is the Queen of Halloween. As I mentioned in another post, I intend to steal her glittery orange and black crown someday. 😉 So, in an attempt to at least be known as the Princess of Halloween, I jumped at the chance to share the Martha Stewart Halloween Snake Wreath tutorial with you today! (This is not my idea—it’s a sneak peek they sent to me from their new Halloween Special Issue—more on that below!) I think it is just to-die-for cute and creepy all at once. Not to mention BRILLIANTLY simple! Love it! Be sure to check out the bottom of this post for a fun and very simple FLASH GIVEAWAY! Eek!
