The inspiration for my wreath came from a picture that I saw on Pinterest, but I have not been able to find the original source to give due credit. I used the idea that I saw in the picture with some added embellishments of my own.
To make the wreath I used a green Christmas wreath that I had discarded and stashed in a closet. I also used a can of black spray paint.
I spray painted the wreath with several coats of paint on both sides, covering all the greenery, letting it dry between coats.
Some of the supplies I used were black tulle, orange wired ribbon, plastic spiders, florist wire, and wire cutters.
I also used some ping pong balls, wiggly eyes, and of course, my hot glue gun.
After the wreath was painted black and dried, I wrapped some black tulle around the wreath to give it a web-like effect. Then I simply hot glued the orange spiders all over the wreath for color and "creepiness". Peeking eyes were made from the ping pong balls and wiggly eyes hot glued together. The wreath was finished with a big orange bow made from the wired ribbon and florist wire.
I think I'll let these spiders hang around on my porch while the big googly peeking eyes are on the look out for trick or treaters!
