If you’ve been following the blog for awhile, you know that I love to make stuff. But I also don’t have much patience when it comes to making things. lol! That means that most of my projects are super easy and usually utilize some sort of pre-made something or other. I often walk down the aisles of the craft store and see things pre-made items that I think could be turned into something completely different and used for another purpose. That is exactly how this easy DIY spider wreath for Halloween came about. I was at the craft store and found this pre-made fall wreath. Only to me…all I could see was something much more sinister. Spider eggs. Gross, I know. But also perfect for Halloween. 😉

I think my absolute fear of spiders leads me to create all kinds of spider themed Halloween projects every year. It makes sense, right? Halloween is supposed to be scary and to me, spiders are about the scariest thing ever…well, next to snakes. 😉 You put a spider on just about anything and to me it says “ta-da! Halloween!” 😉
The best part about this wreath? It uses three things…and you don’t even need any adhesive! Which means, that when Halloween is over, you can simply strip off the spiders and you have a plain fall wreath again for Thanksgiving. It’s a two for one. 😉
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE AN EASY DIY SPIDER WREATH FOR HALLOWEEN
- White spider web (this is a great deal for lots of webbing and small plastic spiders…you can use the rest to decorate the yard!)
- small black plastic spiders (if you buy webbing that doesn’t come with enough, these are a great option…they come in an assortment of 3 sizes)
- large black plastic spider
- White berry wreath from the craft store . I used one similar to this.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR DIY SPIDER WREATH
This DIY Spider Wreath is so easy. Seriously. Simply spread some of the spiderweb over the wreath. If you’ve ever worked this type of web before you know it is easy to get it caught on just about everything, so it will stick to the wreath no problem. Just pull and tuck it in around the sticks and berries. Once you have a thin layer of web covering the wreath, add in some small plastic spiders. Just get them caught in the web and they should stick also. Finally, add the larger spider to the bottom right hand side of the wreath. Mine stuck just by catching it in the web, but if you need to, you can use a little bit of thread or adhesive to tie or stick the spider on. If you do end up using adhesive though you might not be able to re-use the wreath for other things. Just a heads up.
Did I tell you it was easy or what? It literally takes less than 5 minutes. And I think it looks pretty darn cute too…if I do say so myself. 😉
I hope you enjoy making this fun spider wreath.
