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!

    1. Oh yes! I'm planning a treasure hunt, but I haven't written any clues yet! I love the ones your husband did! I may have to borrow some of his rhymes for mine . . tweaking them a little. :)
