DIY Halloween Spider Wreath is the perfect creepy chic holiday craft!
So it’s been a little quiet around here for the past week, but it was for a very good reason. Bryan and I were sailing around the caribbean with Carnival Cruises. It was a much needed vacation and an awesome time. I will definitely be sharing the details with you all soon, but let’s get back to our regularly scheduled routine in the meantime with this fun Halloween craft. Can you believe Halloween is less than two weeks away?
When I ordered the spiders to make this project, I was feeling confident. I just had a feeling it was going to turn out awesome. Then, the spiders arrived, and I started to get nervous about this Halloween wreath.
They weren’t quite the spiders I had thought. I wasn’t sure how close or far apart to put them. And, to be honest, it looks sort of silly at first with only a few spiders glued to a white wreath form. I was not feeling good about it. Then, I got about a quarter of the wreath done and I instantly fell in love. From a distance, the spiders make a subtle design that looks like black lace. It’s beautiful. Then, the closer and closer you get, you realize it’s spiders which I think is so awesome for Halloween. Beautiful and a little creepy all at the same time.
Just like my Halloween Eyeball Wreath, this one takes a little time. Let’s be honest – any DIY project that requires hot gluing stuff onto something (I know – very technical), it’s going to take time, especially if you like to avoid burning yourself with the glue or the hot glue gun. These sorts of projects are perfect for movie night. I vote for getting in the spirit with Hocus Pocus!
- Black Halloween Spiders
- Styrofoam Wreath
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot Glue Sticks
- Black ribbon or other hanging device
- Warm up your hot glue.
- Start at one spot on your wreath and start gluing on the spiders. For me, I liked when they slightly overlapped in space (such as legs intertwined) without crowding them together or gluing on top of each other. Leaving a little bit of space will help give that lace look from afar. I also don’t worry about the hot glue strings for this project as they look like webbing anyway!
- Add black ribbon or another hanging device to the back of the wreath using hot glue and/or pins.
- DONE! Step two takes a while but the process is simple.
