Easy Spider Wreath
I'm always looking for new DIY inspiration at the Dollar Tree to prove that great style doesn't have to cost a lot of money! For this scary chic wreath I grabbed some florals and a spider for this affordable craft!
what you need
grapevine wreath - I repurposed an old wreath I had!
floral stems - anything with a spooky vibe
spray paint in black and gray
ribbon of your choice
where to find your materials
It is definitely possible to buy all of your supplies new. My favorite place for affordable florals is Michael's. However, I bet you could find most of your supplies at a thrift store or Dollar Store! The florals do not have to look realistic for this wreath because we are painting them! And any old grape vine wreath - thrifted or upcycled - will be just fine too!
how to make it
Spray paint your wreath black and your floral steams gray. Or use whatever color combination you like!
Cut apart your florals into separate stems. Add a dot of hot glue to each end and insert it into your wreath with the stems pointing toward the top center of your wreath. The florals will be hanging upside down at an angle in this design.
Use as few florals or as many as you'd like! I used 2 of each type of stem for mine.
Cut a long piece of fishing line and tie it around the top of your wreath in the center. Determine how low you want your spider to hang and adjust the length as needed. Using hot glue, attach the line to the bottom of your spier so it hangs upside down.
Wrap ribbon around the top center to cover glue, stems, and fishing line. I like this feminine touch! I used satin gold and pink velvet for a cute touch. It reminds me of candy! But Black satin or crinkle burlap would look great too! Add your own flair!
