Remember when I talked about using craft supplies I already have for my projects? I’m trying to do it with my holiday crafts and decor too. I hope I’m helping to give you ideas on how to use what you already have to create now decor items for your home. It was time for a new Halloween wreath and I’m so happy with how this Spooky Spider Wreath turned out.
Foam wreath (I took apart an old wreath)
Halloween tights (was supposed to be used for a costume)
Mini clothes pins
Halloween scrapbook paper
Paper medallion (from an old project)
Hot glue gun
1 5/8″ circle punch
Start by cutting the legs off the tights.
Then cut the toes off the tights so you have 2 tubes of fabric.
Cut a slit in the foam wreath using a serrated knife.
Slide the tights over the foam wreath.
Use a little hot glue to hold the tights in place.
Now it’s time to make the banner. I used paper with different designs and varying degrees of orange and white. Cut rectangles 2″ wide x 3″ long. Make a mark in the center of one of the 2″ sides, cut from the center to the outside of the other side of the paper to form a triangle. I used a paper cutter to make it easier.
Spell out any word you would like on the flags to make the banner. I used some left over glitter scrapbook letters.
String the bakers twine across the wreath form and tie. Secure the banner pieces to the twine using mini clothespins. These were already painted black but you could also paint your own.
You can even mix and match letters if you don’t have enough letters of the same style.
Attach gems to the backs of the spiders using e6000 glue.
I found this medallion from an old project and decided it would be perfect the wreath. I used a 1 5/8″ circle punch to make the orange dot and attached it to the center of the medallion then added the spider to the top.
I attached the rest of the spiders to the door using glue dots. So far they’ve held up.
There you have it! Spooky Spider Wreath using things I already had. What can you make with things you already have?
