Spooky Spider Welcome…

Halloween Wreath 001I love Martha Stewart’s holiday crafts and always pick up her Halloween magazine for inspiration. This year she featured a black wreath with creepy crawly creatures that I couldn’t resist! Her version had snakes which looked super cool but I couldn’t find any snakes in my area, and didn’t want to wait to order on-line, so I used spiders instead. I still like the way it looks and can always add snakes later on if I want. The bird I added just because I love crows as Halloween decor. Here are the few simple steps to make:

Spray paint a plain grapevine wreath (and rubber snakes if you choose to use these) with Krylon indoor*outdoor spray paint in black satin. If using snakes, tie on with black floral wire. The spiders I used were the plastic kind on rings so I just pushed the ring part in to the vines. For a more secure method I would use a drop of glue to keep the spiders from falling out. Hang your dark, creepy wreath on your front door and enjoy!
