Creepy Crawly Wreath!

yes, it’s a bit early for such things. 
But, I don’t do time tables well.
I did this. I liked it. I posted. The end.


Let’s go.
You need…

1 styrofoam wreath. I used a 9incher I think??
1 pile of rubber spiders, snakes…whatever you can find at the dollar store.
1 can of black spray paint (unless you are lucky and can find them already black)
2 fake Halloweeny flowers
1 large pile of black tulle
1 roll of ribbon
1 hot glue gun
3 or so glue sticks.

Step 1.

Grab your pile of creepy crawlers and spray them black.




Step 2.

Wrap your wreath with your ribbon so that it is covered…

Step 3.

Knot the tulle again and again around the wreath

Until it covers a majority of the ribbon.



Step 4.


Hot glue the creepy crawlers on your wreath any old way you please.

Now LISTEN!! I forgot to take pictures here…well, really I couldn’t get the
little strings to show up.
When you are hotglueing you want to LET your hotglue buggar strings that
hang to string ACROSS your wreath. It will be your spider web!!

Step 5.
Hot glue your flowers where you like.  Add a ribbon to hang I guess.

There you go…


The details. See those cool “webs”…those are the yucky strings my hot glue gun makes.
So cool!

    That is SO cool! I’m getting ready to make one, but I’m using a different haunted theme.

    Did you really spray paint directly on the sidewalk? Too funny! I like the tulle and flowers. They add a girly touch to the scary stuff. :)
