DIY Nightmare Before Christmas Monster Wreath

I love the nightmare before Christmas, because it is a frightfully way to incorporate Halloween into Christmas in which I am all for it. It is by far my favorite movie of all time, so here is a DIY project for the man eating wreath featured in the movie. The tutorial instructions came from Kristie's blog DIY Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween Props where I found the instructions on how to make mine. 

DIY Denim Cut Off Shorts

 

If you are like me then you have a lot of denim pants that are just lying around your home that you are no longer using. Well Here is a great DIY project that you can do to put those jeans to good use. Don't be afraid to get crazy creative with them like adding studs or lace on them. 

Heres what you would need;

  • Denim jeans
  • Scissors
  • Needle and blue thread
  • Iron

First put your jeans on and put a pin in them where you want to cut them. Make sure to add two inches to the ends where you will cut, to allow the hems to be rolled.

Then cut the jeans off and try them on for length.

Roll the hems over twice so no raw hem shows. Hand sew a stitch on the inside and outside seams so that the rolls don’t come down. Then last but not lest Iron the hems flat.
