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.

FREE Pattern 🚨 Alert: The Ginger Spice Bi-Color Brioche Scarf! We couldn't resist whipping up this beauty out of the YarnYAY! October featured yarn @thefibrecompany &Make Aran (in colors Spill the Tea and Mon Ami). Make it to match either pair of the mitt patterns that come with our October Box, or make it on its own. You do you!

The Forager wrist warmers by @hellogavriella (and featured in the YarnYAY! October Box) might be my favorite crocheted mitt pattern we've ever included in one of our monthly boxes. The wool/alpaca blend of @thefibrecompany &Make Aran yarn is the perfect medium for textured linen stitches. Oh, and the peek-a-boo detailing at the top-edges, is *chef's kiss"!
Treat yourself to the October Box to get this pattern (plus THREE more!), yarn, and a couple more awesomely autumnal items. Link in @vickiehowell bio (or go to yarnyay.com) to learn more.
