Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
1 ball each of Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) yarn, in colors: Black(ish) and White(ish)
Twig or foam wreath base (desired size -- I found this one at the dollar spot in Target)
Plastic Spiders
Hot glue & gun
Scissors
Measuring tape
Yarn needle

Step 2: How-to: Part 1

Picture of How-to: Part 1
  • Make fringe bunch by measuring and cutting six, 18" strands of Black(ish) yarn.
     
  • Holding strands together, fold in half; tie on fringe by folding around a section of wreath base; push the tail ends through the loop created by the strands being folded in half; pull until snug.
     
  • Repeat last two steps until wreath base is completely covered in fringe bunches.
     
  • Trim ends around, if desired.

Step 3: How-to: Part 2

  • With yarn needle and a knotted strand of White(ish), bring yarn up through Black(ish) strands at  any point of the inner edge of wreath and across to opposite side; weave needle under a few strands of Black(ish). Continue in this manner, crossing inner wreath back-and-forth with White(ish) and anchoring to Black(ish). This will create web effect.
     
  • Hot glue plastic spiders onto wreath and web.
     
  • Tie a braided strand of White(ish) yarn around top of wreath for hanging.
