This Halloween tell your kids a good yarn about a wretched wreath — one covered in spiders and fringe! With a few supplies from the craft store and in under 2 hours, your home decor will include a bit of not-so-ferocious fun.
Twig or foam wreath base (desired size — I found this one at the dollar spot in Target)
Hot glue & gun
Make fringe bunch by measuring and cutting six, 18″ strands of Black(ish) yarn.
Holding strands together, fold in half; tie on fringe by folding around a section of wreath base; push the tail ends through the loop created by the strands being folded in half; pull until snug.
Repeat last two steps until wreath base is completely covered in fringe bunches.
Trim ends around, if desired.
With yarn needle and a knotted strand of White(ish), bring yarn up through Black(ish) strands at any point of the inner edge of wreath and across to opposite side; weave needle under a few strands of Black(ish). Continue in this manner, crossing inner wreath back-and-forth with White(ish) and anchoring to Black(ish). This will create web effect.
Hot glue plastic spiders onto wreath and web.
Tie a braided strand of White(ish) yarn around top of wreath for hanging.
