Halloween

The last wreath I made with my mom took a weekend to get all the stuff and then I realized I needed more stuff (that took a month or a couple months to finally go get). It was a long process. For Halloween, I found a super quick, cheap, and easy to make wreath. It was only one trip to the craft store and a couple hours (I made dinner and did laundry as I made the wreath too).

This is a super adult post. Wreaths… dinner… laundry… craft stores. oh boy.

Anyway – I’m pretty proud of how it turned out. Not a pinterest fail!

How to make a spider wreath

What you need:

  • Styrofoam circle/wreath
  • Halloween spider web stuff
  • Plastic Spider
  • Plastic flies
  • Glue gun *lots of glue)
  • Letters to spell out “Boo” (or whatever other word: Eek, RIP…)
  • Black paint
  • Sponge paint brush
  • White ribbon, fishing line, or string

What to do:

  1. Paint the letters with the sponge paint brush and let dry.
  2. Start pulling apart the spiderweb stuff and stretching it out so it doesn’t have so many crinkles and it’s not so thick.
  3. Hot glue the end of the spide web to the wreath. Then – in no pattern whatsoever, start wrapping and gluing the web on the wreath. Sometimes I did a wrap around the wreath, other times I wrapped around from one side to the other side. One trick is to try and keep the hot glue on the back side of the wreath – otherwise it looks messy.
  4. Once the painted letters are dry, attach them to the wreath with your string/ribbon/fishing wire. First I tied the letters together and made sure the spacing was right. Then, I tied both ends on the wreath and glued in place.
  5. Then, hot glue the spider web wherever you want it and then hot glue the flies in random spots.
  6. Finally, attach a circle of ribbon/string around the top where you want it to hang. – you could also have a larger bow if you want. Hang it on your door!
