Skull and Bones Wreath - Part 2
The best part about having a Pirate themed birthday party is how easy it's going to be finding decorations to set a pirate mood.
I have about 4 or 5 containers of Halloween decorations in my storage shed with lots of skulls and crossbones to use for the pirate decorations.
The first item I retrieved from the storage shed was the skull and crossbones wreath I made for last year's Halloween door hanger.
You can read about how I made this wreath in my earlier post Skull and Bones Wreath.
I wanted to make the wreath a little more like a pirate wreath so I found a pirate hat printable on the internet to print and also added a patch to cover one of the eye sockets.
I thought a Pirate greeting was also necessary to "warn" our party guests before entering the "hideout". :)
I took a piece of cardboard and quickly painted a Pirate greeting that seemed fitting for a Ferrell boy pirate party.
When I was finished and showed it to Shane a/k/a the birthday boy, his whole face lit up. He thought it was awesome! What do you think?
Step by step . . . I'm checking off the items on my to-do list for Shane's pirate birthday party.
Next on the list . . . birthday invitations . . . and I have a great idea for those!
Until then . . . more pirate adventures await . . .
the Ferrell boys and me!
