So in case you missed it, earlier in the week I shared my Witchy Glam Halloween Mantel!
I wanted to share with you a little tutorial on the Spider Glam Halloween Wreath. This wreath is super quick and easy – and it’s full of bling!
It has a sweet little spider and some fancy chains and brooches – something all the coolest Witches are displaying this Halloween!
This really goes together super fast. To make you’re own you’ll need:
- Grapevine Wreath
- Black Spray Paint
- 4 Brooches
- Assorted lengths of chain
- Largish Spider
- Chiffon and Lace strips for flowers
- Hot glue
Start off by spraying the snot out of your wreath – you want to get it really black. This will take several coats to make sure all the grapevines in the center are covered.
I used glossy so it was nice and shiny – but any black would work.
Create loose fabric flowers. For the Chiffon flowers, cut long strips about 4″ wide. Fold the strip in half long ways and run a gathering stitch along the raw ends. Gather up the strip and then glue the strip onto a small felt circle, swirling the chiffon into layered circles to make a loose flower. Repeat with the lace.
Glue the flowers onto the wreath with the lace flower in the center.
To give the spider a little bling we’re going to do a little spider surgery. Cut a slit in the largest part of the body. (This guy came from the dollar store)
Choose a button with a shank on it and glue the shank into the slit in the spider’s body.
See? I even left glue gun strings there as proof. That was on purpose.
Glue two brooches (or buttons, anything bling-y really) onto the chiffon flowers and glue the spider onto the lace flower.
For the chain portion of the wreath, I wanted to have the option to reuse these brooches later, and that’s hard to do when they’re covered in hot glue.
So I “pinned” the brooches to the wreath. Just open up the pins and slip them through a few branches, then close them up!
Thread several different lengths of chain through the pins so that they form a little chain swag.
And that’s it!! Super easy right?
I think that chain swag is my favorite part. :)
And here it is on the mantel again!
So I’d love to know – what are you doing for Halloween? Do you change up your decorations every year?
