Make a cute spider Halloween wreath.Are YOU scared of spiders? I am one of those weird ones who is not afraid of spiders. I mean, if I had one crawling across my face, I would definitely slap it away and shutter. If I see one crawling across the sidewalk near my feet though, I’ll step aside and let it pass by. No harm, no foul. I can marvel at their webs and see the absolute beauty in the art and miracle of them. As long as they aren’t chasing me…I have a completely irrational fear of being chased…spiders and me are cool. We will never be best friends, but more like those neighbors that give a head nod as you pass by.
Still, I understand that people can be scared of them, and that’s why they make so many appearances at Halloween.
I saw this darling (and decidedly not scary) wood spider at Target one year and the spider web cake plate…that I would never use as a cake plate just because of the insane amount of glitter that came off just opening the box…and I decided yet another Halloween wreath was in my future. They also had a super cute spider garland that found it’s way into my cart.
DIY Spider Halloween Wreath Supplies
While the exact items I used aren’t available at Target any longer, I found a few things on Amazon to make your own spider Halloween wreath, although it will be a little more on the creepy side! 🙂
- Spider web decoration with spider
- Spider garland
- Black and Silver Striped Ribbon
- Foam Wreath Form
- Hot glue gun and glue
Let’s get right to it.
DIY Halloween Spider Wreath
Step one: Wrap the ribbon around what will be the top and make a loop for a hanger. Secure with hot glue. Step two: Continue wrapping until the entire wreath is covered in ribbon. Use sparingly because you want some left to attach the web. If you run out, you could use some black or something else.
Step 3: Hot glue the wooden spider to the web if you have one, or just use the web that has a spider on top. Mine was just that top of the cake plate (I just discarded the rest of it…SO MUCH GLITTER).
Step 4: Attach the web with short strips of the ribbon, hot gluing to secure it. I used four strips, two on the top, two on the bottom.
The wreath was small enough that the web just about sat on it, so the four held it really well.
Step 5: Attach the spider garland with hot glue around the edges. If you have left over spiders, just clip them off.
Hang up your spider Halloween wreath…or chase your spider spooked husband around the house as payback for chasing you up the stairs at night.
I won’t judge!
Are you scared of spiders, and if not, what are you scared of?
I already told you I HATE being chased, but I also hate mice and snakes. Because ewww.
