Eek! A Spider Web Wreath

This year I wanted to make a wreath for our mantle for the Halloween season. Here's what I came up with....a spider web wreath.

I started with this wooden wreath from the $1 Store.

Spray painted it black.

Used a yarn called Cello in black (at Joann's, I think that's what it's called). You could also use Fun Fur but I like the Cello better because it's more wispy.


I used hot glue and a chip clip to hold it in place while it dried. I had other things going on, like dishes and dinner so I wasn't watching glue dry.



I had to use Zip Dry glue so I could use my fingers to attach the inside pieces.

Then I made the Eek! banner and used googly eyes inside the e's.


The spider....I used a pom-pom cut off of some pomp-pom sewing trim I had laying around, wrapped it in yarn.



Added googly eyes...

and made the legs from some ribbon that was very think and had a lot of body (all of this was spare stuff, laying around the house).


This is how it turned out. Not bad for spare parts and a $1 wreath .

I love these wreaths and when I went back to one of the Dollar Stores {the only one I usually go to} they didn't have any! I was so sad as they are a great, cheap wreath form. I even went on-line and they didn't have them. I think I might have to do some shopping at other stores. Adorable decorating :)
