Eek! A Spider Web Wreath

This is my Halloween wreath from last season.....

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 .
