How To: Spooky Spider Halloween Wreath

Spooky Spider Halloween Wreath

A common fixture in the Halloween scene is the creepy, black spider. I had in mind to create a Halloween wreath that served two purposes. When visible from afar it would be chic and striking, and when viewed closely upon entrance one would see the spiders and perhaps feel a chill down their spine in light of the Halloween season!

I believe I achieved my goal, and creating the wreath was a breeze with May Arts Ribbon.

I started with a simple straw wreath, the only that I had on hand. I wrapped May Arts 1.25” Black Silk Ribbon around the wreath-securing the beginning and end pieces with two straight stick pins. I wrapped tightly, as I wanted to control the stray straw. (A foam wreath would have been very efficient to use, and I would have ended up with a cleaner base if I had used one of those.)

I then created a few bows from the lovely selection of wired ribbon available at May Arts. I found that 7/8” was the perfect width for my wreath-not too large and not too small. I used the sheer iridescent purple and orange ribbon, and then bordered each of these colors in black wired ribbon.  I created the bows freehand and also adhered to the wreath with stick pins.

Finally, I finished the wreath by adhering some plastic spiders with adhesive glue dots. I had the spiders on hand from my Halloween festivities last year-they were rings so I just snipped the ring part off! This project really was so simple and I am pleased with the end result- I can’t wait to try my hand at a Christmas Holiday Wreath using similar types of ribbons-I’m just going to have to replace the spider with gumdrops!
