Are you ready for Halloween?! We bought our costumes this year, but I still have one that I need to DIY. I always say I’m not going to decorate, but my kids go crazy over the cute spooky stuff, and then I can’t help myself and start making things like a fun wreath! Not only is this wreath easy, but it was super cheap to make. So if you’re looking for something easy you can do with the kids to spruce up your front porch, this wreath is for you! Read on for the full tutorial.
I started with a ribbon wrap around a straw wreath I already had.
I always stalk the Christmas clearance section for things I can use year round, and this ribbon screamed Halloween. Isn’t it perfect? Especially since it was 70 percent off.
Then I used a hot glue gun and some felt to attach the “web” (some ribbon from the Dollar Section).
If I weren’t on a spending freeze, I would have bought a spider to hang down, but instead I used one that my kids crafted last year, which is probably cuter and more meaningful, right?
That spider was made with an egg carton, some pipe cleaners and glitter paper: more details and photos here.
And then I added a black glitter bow to top it off!
So easy and less than $5 to make – it doesn’t get any cheaper than that!
I currently have it in my kitchen and then I will put in on my front door on Halloween.
Will be sharing more of my kitchen Halloween decor soon!
