Halloween is on the way, which always puts me in a crafty mood. This spider wreath is perfect because it is light on the effort and heavy on the creepy. I was able to create the whole thing in less than an hour. A small disclaimer though, I live in Arizona so the spray paint only took a few minutes to dry. If you live in a more humid climate the project may take a little longer. On to the details....
- Grapevine Wreath (I used a small size but use any size you want)
- Black Paint (preferably spray paint)
- Glue Dots®
- Plastic Spiders
Begin by spray painting the wreath black. Be sure to get in all the crevices and paint both sides. Allow the wreath to dry thoroughly before attaching the spiders.
|Starting to get Creepy|
Attach the spiders to the wreath using Glue Dots®. It looks best to attach them in random directions rather than all in one direction. I prefer to use a lot of spiders rather than just a few. Be sure to leave a gap where you can later attach the ribbon (if you choose to attach a ribbon for hanging.)
Connect the ribbon by creating a loop at the top and secure using a Glue Dot®.
|So Close to Completion|
If you choose you can fasten the ribbon to the wreath using Glue Dots®. This will prevent the wreath from shifting.
Place a single spider on the ribbon as an accent.
|Cool and Gross and Perfect|
