Spooky Spider Web Wreath (in 4 Easy Steps!)

STEP 1: GATHER YOUR SUPPLIES

For this project you will need: 
a grapevine wreath
wooden letters
acrylic craft paint in orange, green and purple
glittery spiders
yarn of choice 
(I chose the RED HEART Scrubby Sparkle in Grape color)

STEP 2: PAINT YOUR LETTERS

I chose to paint mine in orange, green and purple, but any Halloween-ish color combo would do. You could even paint them all the same color if you'd prefer.

STEP 3: MAKE THE WEB

Take your yarn and tie it around the wreath in a spoke like pattern. The yarn I used is purple and a little bit fuzzy and sparkly, but any yarn you want to use will be fine.  Also, don't worry too much about your web being perfectly symmetrical. It really doesn't matter. I promise. My 4 year old helped me with this one, and I think the irregular pattern kind of adds to it's charm.

(here's the yarn I used, in case you were wondering!)

STEP 4: ASSEMBLE 

EEK! Spooky Spider wreath

This is the fun part! Once your painted letters are dry you can play around with the placement of your letters and spiders. Once you have a pattern you like, take your trusty glue gun and glue everything in place.
