Ok, I know I just posted my rosemary wreath last week. It's still hanging and drying out nicely. But I wanted to do a little something for Halloween.
Personally I've always kept to Autumn type decor this time of year. I'm not really big on the scary stuff. First because I have little ones and don't want to freak them out. And second, because I'm still scared of Bloody Mary. Really. It creeps me out to walk by a mirror in the middle of the night. I did the Bloody Mary game when I was little and immediately ran as fast I could to get away. So, I figure she might still be in there waiting to get me. I don't even like to watch a lot of scary movies because they give me weird psycho dreams. It's just not my thing.
BUT, as long as it's not too creepy, bloody, gorey, etc. why not. Although I don't like real life spiders, I can handle these.
So here's my Creepy Crawly Halloween wreath. And I don't have tutorial pictures because I'm slack like that. So, I'll just try to explain it. It's not hard, I promise.
I started by wrapping a wreath form in black yarn. Simple enough.
Then I cut some orange scrap fabric into little squares to make the pennant banner. I wrote out each letter on the scraps with a marker and hot glued them in place on some more yarn. I tried tying the banner on, but that didn't work very well, so I dolloped the hot glue on the back and stuck it on that way.
Next I used cheese cloth to make the spider web. Just hack at it with scissors, drape loosely and hot glue in place.
The spiders came from the dollar store and yep, you guessed it, I hot glued those suckers on as well.
Now we've got a Creepy Crawly wreath to hang on the door for all the treat or treaters.
