Eek! Spider Wreath with Teach. Craft. Love

Hi Miss Lovie Readers! 

This is Dara from teach.craft.love. I am so excited to guest blog today for Allie's Creepy Crafty Halloween event. I will admit Halloween is not my forte but I am excited about hanging this little wreath out to celebrate. Hopefully it will inspire a few more ideas inside my home and I'm loving all of the other greats ideas that have already been posted!

This is a pretty simple project. All of my materials are from The Dollar Tree and Michael's. I hope you like it!

  • wooden wreath
  • black spray paint
  • glitter or glitter paint
  • webbing
  • spider
  • letters
  • white paint
  • ribbon
  • leaves/foliage in Halloween colors/glitter
Step One:
Spray paint your wreath and then add a little of this glitter paint/glue. You can barely see the glitter from far away but I know it's there. And Halloween is the best time for glitter! :)

This is what the glitter looks like before it dries. Be sure to give it a pretty even coat. It's more or less like mod podge with the glitter already in it. 

Step Two:
Stick the leaves/foliage in through the wooden vines

I didn't wire all of the pieces. They seemed to stick without it but a few stuck out so I used floral wire to pull them closer to the wreath.

Step Three:
Drape webbing around. Add as much or as little as you like!

Step Four:
Tie your spider around the wreath. The one I bought (Dollar Tree) had an elastic band around the top so I just used that to attach the little guy.

Step Five:
Paint letters. I added a coat of white paint and then two coats of the fantastic glitter paint in orange.

Step Six: 
Hot glue letters to wreath.

Step Seven:
Hang and creep out your neighbors!

I hope you find inspiration from this wreath and have a very Happy Halloween!!

P.S. Please ignore the poor picture quality/lighting. I finished this in the evening and didn't have a chance to take daylight pictures. 

Thanks for reading and I hope you'll stop by my blog sometime!
