Awreatha #3 - Grim Wreather '21 (The Awreatha Range)
Each Awreatha has her own personality. They're one of a kind.
So here's a little bio on this special little number:
Colours: Pink, blue, silver and a dash of black - all clustered on a silver and blue tinsel wreath.
Key features: Sprinkles of skulls, spiders, troll dolls and kewpie dolls. Featuring a tinsel RIP tombstone and assorted ornaments draped with blue beading.
Fuelled by Pepsi Max, Law and Order SVU and a unique approach to self care, the Awreatha range encompasses one of a kind vintage inspired wreaths curated with a love for the delightfuly tacky. Each piece embraces the spirit of Halloween amongst the most extreme collage project you’ve ever seen.
Each Awreatha is full of layers. They will have you looking twice and noticing a new detail each time. They’re an experience built on fun and they bring such joy, but look a little closer and you’ll notice the importance of repurposing objects. Especially seasonal items that are so easily discarded.
Break the mould. Celebrate the spookiest time of year each and every day. And say Beetlejuice three times while you’re at it.

Displaying your Awreatha
I often get asked what is the best way to display your one of a kind Awreatha.
Wanna hang her on a door?
No worries! I strongly suggest purchasing a Made you Look- Awreatha Over the Door Hook in a complimentary colour which brings a little festive flair to your new addition. Alternatively, you can find your own over the door hook from regular retail/hardware stores.
Wanna hang her on the wall?
No worries! I strongly suggest heavy duty wall hooks. Large 3m Command removable hooks (for renters and those who want to avoid holes in the walls) or just a decent mental hook for those of you who aren't scared of a hammer. If you feel like more support is required, add some simple wire to the back of your Awreatha or even make a small hole/indentation to the back of the wreath (form base) for a hook to sit in. Trial and test these options carefully!
Wanna display her on a shelf?
No worries! Get yourself a durable plate stand so you can showcase your Awreatha in all her glory. Make sure the plate stand is thick enough to accommodate for her curves.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you!
I am pumpkin obsessed and my partner's sister (who is well aware of my pumpkin/Halloween obsession) purchased Awreatha #8 from your Come on baby, don't fear the WREATHER - Halloween range. She kept it aside since October and recently gifted it to me for my birthday in February.
When I opened it, I cried. What a special piece. I can't wait to find the perfect place for it when my partner and I move into our first home later this year.
I already can't wait to buy my next festive piece!
I bought Awreatha #8 from the LOVE SICK collection.
Even though I received it in the mail last week I hadn't opened it until this afternoon. I was saving it for a day I needed a smile, I guess (it's been a big week).
I just wanted to say thank you, it's absolutely spectacular in person.
Jess from Candy & Kitsch is a sugar-fuelled artistic powerhouse who puts an amazing amount of care and attention into everything she creates. Her thrifting skills are unparalleled, and her amazing knack for noticing detail allows her to see the beauty in things that would otherwise be underappreciated or overlooked.
She has a curious nature and finds genuine delight in getting to know each client to find out what makes them tick.
When I received Awreatha #14, this spectacular work of art legitimately made me ugly cry, in the best way.
I love my Awreatha #9. The little tiny cat in the middle makes me happy and is life.
