Halloween season has arrived! It’s time to tap into your inner creative diva and create something spooktacular! I’m thrilled to share this easy, DIY Spooky Spider Wreath with you! Whether you’re a crafting expert or just a newbie, this wreath is easy and customizable. It’s the perfect decoration for greeting the little ghouls and goblins this Halloween season.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
1 wreath foam base (you can find a variety of sizes at your craft store)
2 Halloween ribbons (I chose a pumpkin orange in satin and a striped wire ribbon)
Hot Glue and Glue Gun
*Customize It* – I chose a bright pumpkin orange ribbon as my base, but you could easily customize it with a patterned ribbon, electric purple, or even neon green. Neon green with glow-in-the-dark spiders would make a fabulous wreath. So pick your favorite colors to make it your own!
1. Carefully adhere the end of your base ribbon to the foam wreath and gently wrap it around, gluing as you go, until completely finished. The amount of ribbon needed to cover the wreath will depend on the size of your wreath. Aim to grab an extra spool so you don’t run out!
2. Create a large bow with your statement ribbon and use your hot glue gun to adhere it to the bottom middle of your wreath.
3. Carefully hot glue your spiders wherever you would like on your wreath! You can find a fun assortment of spiders in all colors and sizes at the craft store.
4. Use extra ribbon or fishing line to create a hanging loop around your wreath for hanging on the door!
*PARTY IDEA* Host a WREATH party! Let the kids and friends create their own Halloween wreath by hosting a fun DIY party. Your guests will leave with a spooktacular wreath.
