This DIY Halloween wreath idea is a fun way to decorate your door for Trick or Treaters. All it takes is a grapevine wreath spray painted black and black glitter spiders attached with hot glue. Check out my creeptastic tutorial below for step-by-step directions.
DIY Halloween Wreath Ideas | Black Spider Wreath
Level: Beginner Time Project Time: 15 minutes (plus spray paint drying time)
Materials and Tools Needed:
- Grapevine Wreath (I used a size 14-inch wreath)
- Black Spray Paint
- Black Glitter Spiders (as many as needed to cover wreath – I used 24 spiders)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Ribbon (for hanging)
1. Spray paint a grapevine wreath black. Allow paint to dry completely.
2. Use hot glue to attach the spiders to the wreath. I spaced the spiders about an inch apart on the front of the wreath. The spiders aren’t all facing the same way – just stick them wherever you like them, there’s really not a wrong way to place them. Repeat this step until spiders are glued on all the way around the wreath.
3. Hang the wreath with a ribbon. I used a Halloween-themed ribbon with a black spider print, but a plain colored black or orange ribbon would also look great with this wreath. I had one glitter spider left over from this craft, so I glued a piece of white string to it and tied the string to the wreath so the spider hangs down. If you like the wreath without the hanging spider, skip that step.
