Halloween is just over a week away, and I’m still decorating. Sure, my inside decorations have been up for a week or so, but I’m just starting to decorate the exterior. I had a great Halloween wreath last year, but, sadly, it got destroyed in storage. Not wanting to spend a lot of time or money on a new wreath, I came up with this idea while browsing the Halloween section at Target today.
This wreath is simple to make. No glue. Minimal supplies. And takes only a few minutes to put together. It’s a great project to do with the kids, too.
So, if you’re looking for a quick, easy, and cheap way to spook up your front door, look no further than this DIY Easy Spider Halloween Wreath.
Straw wreath (leave the plastic on)
Beige Spooky Fabric
Start by cutting the fabric into 2-3 inch strips (on the long side). I folded the fabric in half and then cut the strips to make it a bit easier. This fabric will not cut perfectly and you’ll have little threads all over your work surface when you’re done.
Wrap the fabric around the wreath. You can either tuck the ends on the backside of the wreath and wrap the fabric over itself to secure, or you can bunch it a little in the back and secure with straight pins.
Continue to wrap the fabric around the entire wreath. It’s ok if small spots of the straw show. Leave a large peice of fabric hanging at the top of the wreath and use it to create a hanger. I twisted the fabric at the back and secured with several straight pins. You can also use a black ribbon at the top, but I liked the simplicity of one color/fabric.
Stick on the spiders. The plastic spiders will “grip” the fabric, but you’ll want to push them in a bit and make sure the legs are stuck on there. I gave my wreath a few gentle shakes to make sure all of the spiders were stuck in place.
Now you can hang your wreath. Seriously. That’s it.
I told you.
Simple, cheap, easy.
Best of all, it packs a spooky punch to your door this Halloween.
