Halloween Tulle Wreath

I recently saw this black tulle wreath on Pinterest, and I thought it would make a sweet Halloween wreath for my front door.  Since I have a brown front door, I thought it wouldn't be enough of a contrast with black on brown, so I got white tulle.  Thinking back on it, I might have gotten an off-white instead.
I used a large embroidery hoop for the wreath form, then just knotted tulle strips around it.  (I used this method for quick tulle-cutting, and it worked very well.)  I happened to have 12" hoops on hand from another project that didn't work out, but using such a large hoop meant that my wreath ended up being a lot bigger than I imagined.  The tulle was also a lot puffier than I thought it would be, so it looked sort of weirdly oversized on my front door.

Fortunately, I have this big mirror right inside the front door that it looks great hanging in front of.  I used black polka dot ribbon for the hanger, and I got the blackbird at the dollar store.  It has wire under the feet, so all I had to do was wrap the wire around the hoop after I tied the tulle around.  This was a pretty quick project, and I think it makes a nice statement, plus all I have to do to use it for other holidays is switch out the ribbon and bird.
