DIY Spooky Spider Halloween Wreath

This is a minimalist wreath idea, but the look is not sleek. This wreath uses black on black with a bit of white to break things up. Holiday decor doesn’t get any easier than this fun spider wreath. It is 4 items (plus glue gun), is ready in no time flat, and there is almost no way to screw it up.

In addition to a Halloween wreath idea, this also works as a Harry Potter Forbidden Forest idea (for a Harry Potter party).

Notes:

You are taking a black wreath – look for a wreath with built-in overlay such as black leaves, black spiders, webs, skulls, etc. A simple black wreath with no overlay will also work as you can buy black garland to make your own depth (try Michaels or Party City). We used leaves to tell of a windy, spooky night.

If you cannot make a bow, buy one! They are fairly inexpensive at Jo-Ann Fabric, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby. If you are lucky, you may even be able to find one at a dollar store.

The spider used on this wreath is actually an ornament. We just cut off the hanger. You can use any black/white/sliver/clear spider you would like. If you cannot find a spider with some depth (jeweled, white on black, a crystal – Michaels is usually the best for these), and have an old brooch, or necklace, you could remove the chain and use that.

Everything flows outward on this wreath. 40+ years ago I took a journalism magazine class, and was taught that flowing-out looks best to the naked eye (that is why you see only white space on the outter edges of a magazine or newspaper, not in the middle). The same princpal follows here. The built-in leaves (or wrapped garland) on the black wreath are pulled outward to extend the wreath, as well as help the outward flow.

To make the DIY Spooky Spider Halloween Wreath you will need these materials (or something close). The easy to follow instructions follow. The printable instructions are at the end of this post.

• Stretch some spider webbing across the wreath. You “should” be able to use the leaves (skulls, spiders) that were built in (or on your garland) to hold the webbing. If that is not working out, glue a few edges in place. The more you work with your web (taffy-pulling it), the more “realistic” it will look. You do not want your web too stringy.

I was not kidding when I said this is a 15 minute craft project that nearly anyone can do. It is inexpensive, spooky, and yet whimsical at the same time. This one is so easy that if your wreath comes with the premade overlay and you buy a premade bow, older children can put this together (provided you watch over them while they hot glue).

• Measure the glitter branch against the height of your foam house. You may have to poke a hole into the foam where you want to place the glitter branch.
• Place a dab of hot glue over the hole.
• Glue a branch (or two or three) around your house.
• Place a scrap of foam on one side of the branch, and a second piece of foam on the other side (to form a branch-sandwich). Glue the small foam piece in place. This will support the glitter branch.

• Take a paint brush and dip in paint. Splatter it onto table cloth with a flick or a drip to make the paint look like splattered blood.
• Allow to dry. Do not use a hair dryer to hasten as the plastic could melt. If you are doing this on a cloth tablecloth, you could use the hair dryer at low temp, not too close to the paint.
• Repeat for the opposite side. Once both sides of the tablecloth are dry, place on a table. Or you can use to hang in windows with lights behind them to make it look like zombie windows.
