Halloween Spider Yarn Wreath

 

I’m not big into Halloween.  It’s an okay holiday, however I mostly just decorate for fall.  This year I thought it would be fun to have a few Halloween touches up around the house.

I thought a Halloween wreath would put us in the holiday mood without being to over the top.

To get started making your own wreath you will need a wreath form and some yarn.

I am reusing my wreath form from my 4th of July wreath.  If you remember I complained about how difficult is was to wrap the yarn on the bumpy form so I used really thick yarn to make it easier.  However I really like the look of the thinner yarn.  So this time I wrapped my form in plastic wrap first to make the yarn slide easier.  It worked fantastically!  Another tip is to roll your yarn into a ball before you start.  It is such a pain to work with if you leave the yarn in a skein.

I tied the yarn on to start.  Then wrapped it round and round.  It takes a while so turn on a show or listen to a book on tape or something.  {no step by step photo’s today, it’s so easy you don’t need it}

Then I added the ric-rac I used straight pins hold the ric-rac in place. {that way I can use the form again}

Then I traced out the spider on to paper and then on to my black felt with a white crayon.

Add some fake webbing to the back of the wreath and stick the spider to the webbing.

 

That’s it your done!  How easy is that.

 

 

I’m loving the orange, purple, and black together.  My favorite thing about this project is that I only had to buy the felt.  Yep .25 whole cents for the entire project and…  the orange yarn will work for Thanksgiving too. I’ll just take off the ric-rac and add something else on.  Gotta love that!

    This is cute and love the tip about rolling the yarn into a ball. Not something I would have thought about and would have spent my time cursing probably, lol.

    Love your wreath, and especially love the hints about balling up the yarn and the plastic wrap. Definitely, those are two details I would have never thought about….until right in the middle of it, lol. You are one crafty, creative lady and I love seeing the things you come up with! Thanks for sharing!
