Make A Simple + Spooky Halloween Wreath For $5
If you love to decorate for Halloween, you know that it can get real expensive, real fast. Between $15 bags of candy and Halloween costumes, you’re spending money faster than you can say BEETLEJUICE. To give your bank account a break, I created a minimal Halloween wreath that costs about $5 to make and you can have it completed in about 30 minutes.
Materials You’ll Need:
- spider web fabric
- embroidery hoop (your choice of size)
- black paint
- plastic spider (dollar store)
- orange and black ribbon
- glue and glue gun
Paint the entire embroidery hoop black (including the clasp). Let dry.
Stretch the spider web fabric over the smaller hoop. Place the larger hoop on top and tighten.
Turn the embroidery hoop over and trim excess fabric leaving about a one-inch border. Using your glue gun and glue, secure the border to the back of the hoop.
Cover the back of the embroidery with a piece of black felt cut to size or a piece of fabric. This covers the borders on the back and firms up the fabric so we can hang our spooky spider!
Here’s what the back of the wreath/embroidery hoop looked like once I glued the fabric on:
Next, using your hot glue gun, secure your spider to the front of the wreath.
Since the spider had orange tips on him, I used a piece of orange ribbon to add a bow. I placed my bow on the bottom of the wreath but you can add it wherever you’d like. 🙂
Finally, I cut a piece of black ribbon and made a loop so I can hang this spooky spider on my door.
That’s all there is to it because we are done, done, done. Easy, right?
Here’s my final cost breakdown:
embroidery hoop 49 cents (thrift store buy)
paint (already had on hand but used about $2 worth)
spider web fabric ($1.74 for 1/2 a yard)
spider ($1 from dollar store–similar ones found here)
ribbon (already had on hand)
glue (already had on hand)
I hope you gather the kiddos or friends and family and make this easy and inexpensive wreath this weekend. It’s so much fun! Boo!
