Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

Ding Dong The Witch is Dead

about 30" in diameter

It's done...the OZ wreath has been shipped!
As of this post, it's still enroute to Irene's home. Tracking slip shows me it will arrive on the 22nd sometime before midnight. I hope she likes it. The wreath is grapevine, the tornado is made from a grapevine cone, trimmed and bent into shape. The witch's broom is a piece of dowel with straw attached for bristles. Black 'tornado damaged feathers' give off contrast. "Welcome My Little Pretties" is cut from wood, the house is grooved paneling and mini-Popsicle sticks window with terry fringe for a "ripped and damaged" curtain, a screw for a door handle. The witch hat is 3D and stuffed, the ruby slippers from the Wicked Witch of the East is a floral pick I found at Hobby Lobby...
