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.

The YarnYAY! 𝘔𝘢𝘳𝘤𝘩 𝘉𝘰𝘹'𝘴 featured shade of 𝘔𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘰𝘺𝘢 𝘔𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘰 𝘓𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 (Desert Jasper), feels right at home with this holiday, so 𝘄𝗲'𝗿𝗲 𝗴𝗶𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝘄𝗮𝘆 𝗮 𝗯𝗼𝘅 𝘁𝗼 𝗧𝗪𝗢 𝘄𝗶𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗿𝘀! See below for details.
Side note (that likely no one by me will care about): Giving away hanks on St Patrick's Day, of my Montoya Merino yarn feels appropriate as my dad used to always say that my brother and I were Spirish (Spanish + Irish). Thank you for listening.
