Scare Your Guests with a Creepy Wreath

Good Morning! I have the coolest wraith- uh er.. I mean wreath for you today! This wreath is so easy, yet awesome. You don’t have to spend much either. How fun! I bet you already have most of what you need at home. If not, a quick trip to the dollar store will find you just a couple dollars worth of product that you need. Scare your guests with a creepy wreath!

BOO! Did that scare you? Doesn’t minion#2 look kinda like a ghost? hahaha! Got ya!

your laundry list of what you’ll be needing to re-create this wreath.

book pages, stapler.

black acrylic paint- thinned down and put in a paper cup.

cardstock- two circles of black about 8 and 6.5 inches around, crumpled.

hot glue and hot glue gun.

spider webbing and spidies. ( eh- spiders)

cardboard, and a twist tie.

a creepy cool skull

that’s it. not a lot and certainly not more then a few dollars. I even recycled the cardboard from a deli pizza box.

I used my compass to cut a circle about 12 inches around.

then I made cones from an old book, I stapled them at the end .

Here is where I used my black acrylic paint, I thinned it pretty thin, and just dipped the end of the cone in the paint. I let it get a bit messy and then dried them on a spare piece of cardboard.

Then I started hot gluing the cones down to the cardboard. I did it across from each other in fours to try to keep the shape round and even.

Then I started adding in more cones between the glued down cones. So long as the outside edge of the cardboard is covered, the cones can be glued down however.

Start adding on a second layer, making sure not to overlap the edges of the cones, allowing some of the book paper to peek out.

When all your cones are glued down, glue a  clump of spider webbing to the center point of the cones. Let this cool.

Then STRETCHHHHH your webbing over the front and around to the back of the wreath. Hot Glue those ends in place.

Add spiders all over and around the wreath.

Cut two circles – at 8 and 6.5 inches, then crumple and smooth for center of wreath, hot glue in place.

Add skull cutout. I bought this as a banner a couple years ago at Target, you may be able to find it or something close.

Turn your wreath over, twist your twist tie into a loop, then hot glue to back of the cardboard for a hanger.

Hang on your door or mirror or where ever.  Then enjoy the phrases of how cool your wreath is, and you made that?

Extremely light, very inexpensive  wreath. And the more beat up it gets, the creepier it looks!
