Spooky Spider Wreath



Spooky Spider Wreath

Submitted by Mary Phillips of Forgotten Works Garden Gallery

This wreath is easy, quick, and inexpensive! Involve the children by sending them out to enjoy the cooler fall weather and have them gather sticks. About 6 – 8 small fistfuls.

MATERIALS: 

  • hot glue 
  • cardboard 
  • black spray paint 
  • sticks 
  • spider rings or other small Halloween novelties
  • utility knife to cut the cardboard 
  • circle template (such as a large bowl) 
  • marker

 DIRECTIONS: Cut the cardboard (an old box works perfectly) into a circle about 12-16 inches in diameter (I used a large bowl as a template and traced it with a marker). Using caution cut the circle out with the utility knife. Make sure sticks are clean, with no extra dirt. Hot glue the sticks onto the cardboard ring working in one direction around the wreath. Be sure some sticks hang over both the inside and outside edges of the cardboard form. After the glue has hardened, take the wreath outside and spray it well with black paint. Be sure to spray it from all angles. When the paint is dry, use the hot glue to attach spiders (or other small Halloween novelties) to your project – we used some leftover rings from last year's trick-or-treat goodies. Hang with either a ribbon or a simple nail to your door and even add some spider webbing material as a spooky welcome for family and friends!
