Lay your black tshirt flat and, using a rotary cutter, cut off the shirt at the chest, just under the armpits (leaving behind just a tube of fabric). Then trim off the bottom hem. Starting at the top, cut diagonal in just a bit and start to cut a one inch strip. Going around in a slight swirling pattern, continue cutting in a straight line around the shirt, creating a long, continuous 1" thick snake of fabric. Repeat for the white shirt. (You can use fabric instead of tshirts, if you have it on hand. If your fabric isn't tubular, you may need to join ends with glue to create a long enough strip.)
Roll each length of your knit 'yarn' into a ball (to make it easier to work with). Starting at the top of the wreath, securely glue the end of the white ribbon to the back of the wreath and wrap tightly around 3 times to create a stripe, gluing at the back with each pass of the fabric to secure. Repeat with the black fabric, overlapping as needed always on the back of the wreath. Then repeat with the white, then black, etc. until the wreath is covered. Cut off excess fabric.
Form your wire into a bow shape, approximately 4 inches wider than the width of your wreath at it's widest point. Twist the wire in the middle to help hold the shape. Twist the ends of the wire to join. Fold and drape the zombie cloth over your bow frame and glue into place. You can use a scrap of the knit fabric to tie the cloth to the center of the bow. Place your bow on your wreath as desired. Bend the wire to shape it to your wreath. Use glue to secure into place.
Using a sharp serrated knife, carefully cut your styrofoam pumpkin in half. Cover the back with felt or a fabric scrap to contain the mess. Glue to center of bow.
