“Sure,” I thought. “I’m crafty. I can throw together a Halloween wreath in a jiffy.”
I found an inspiring and different looking wreath made from tulle and thought I would follow the tutorial. It was cute and clever.
…I started working.
I actually chose brown tulle (of all the glorious colors available) and completed ringlets around the entirety of the wreath form. I glued a glittery spider on the bottom. I’ll admit that it wasn’t my favorite. There was just something off about it that I couldn’t place. But, you know, you get so deep into a project that sometimes it is hard to tell when you get lost.
My husband, however, was not lost. He walked into the kitchen where I was working and asked, “WOW. Did you make that wreath out of human hair?”
And there is was. He nailed it. A disgusting hair-looking wreath. That is EXACTLY what it looked like. It’s enough to make your skin crawl.
I looked at it and all I could feel was the gagging feeling you get when you pull your long hair out of shower drain.
I ripped the glittery spider off (the only redeeming quality) and chucked the rest.
And there you go, a true Halloween horror story.
