Introduction: How to Make a Spooky Halloween Wreath in 10 Easy Steps

Do you need something to get your house ready for Halloween? Then you need a Halloween themed wreath! Make one in just 10 easy steps.

Supplies

What you need:

1. A plain wreath

2. Spray Paint (any color you want, I used rose gold)

3. Fake spider webs

4. Pom Poms

5. Pipe Cleaners

6. Tiny skeletons (optional)

7. Ribbon to hold up the wreath

8. Hot glue gun

Step 1: Spray Paint Wreath

The first thing you need to do you is spray paint your wreath, I went outside and sprayed it in circular motions. When it is fully covered, let it dry for about an hour.

Step 2: Wrap Your Wreath With Spider Webs

When your wreath is finished, get out your fake spider webs. Pull them apart to make them stringy, then wrap them around the wreath. Try to not make it too thick or too thin.

Step 3: Create Your Spider's Body

The first thing you need to do to create your spiders, is get two pom pom balls. Try to find a small pom pom, and a bigger one to replicate a spiders figure. After you gather those, you glue them together to make your spider's head and Body.

Step 4: Add Your Spider's Legs

Cut pipe cleaners into three sections. Make them about the size of the rest of your spider. Next, glue them to the bottom of your spider's body. Finally, Bend them so that the spider can stand up on its own and latch on to a web. Now, you have your finished spider!

Step 5: Attach Your Spider to the Web

After finishing your spider, you need to attach them to the web. Put the spiders anywhere you want, but preferably along the wooden wreath. If the spiders aren't latching on well, glue them to the web/wreath.

Step 6: Wrap Skeletons

This step is optional, but I decided to add skeletons to my wreath to make it more spooky. Grab your skeletons and extra webbing, and wrap in around them. It should make a cacoon-like figure.

Step 7: Attach Your Covered Skeletons to the Wreath

After wrapping the skeletons, attach them to the web on your wreath. You can use glue or more web to stick them on.

Step 8: Tie a Bow Around Your Wreath

Find ribbon that you like, and tie it around the top of your wreath. This should be where you hang it from. Make sure to leave some ribbon hanging for your next step.

Step 9: Glue the Ribbon

After your ribbon is tied, glue the excess parts down. This prevents the ribbon from getting loose and ruining the rest of the wreath.

Step 10: Enjoy!

You now have a Halloween wreath to get your house in the fall mood. Hang it up anywhere and enjoy!
