Halloween wreath - 136 of 365

This idea isn't something new, I'll admit that. There are plenty of wreaths out there made with tied strips of mesh. Google it and you'll find a ton.
I made mine with a large embroidery hoop, black and orange mesh cut to about 3" by 7", a pumpkin-man ornament, and ribbon.

I've known how to make a bow for a long time; I've been making wreaths since I was little. But I found this video from May Arts - made with a fork. And it was so much easier!! I've always had issues getting it right the first time, trying to maneuver my fingers around the ribbon and hold it in different places. But using a fork helps a ton with that!
