An arachnophobia wreath can be a colorful, scary (for those who don’t like spiders!) addition to Halloween decor.
It’s quick and easy to put together and a nice contrast of Halloween colors.
I found some very interesting Creepy Cloth at the Dollar store, and I picked up a package of black. It also comes in a dull grey color.
It has an interesting loose mesh, and there are so many possibilities for using it.
2 or 3 Paper Plates
Small Fake Pumpkins
Package of Orange and Black Spider Rings
Instructions for Arachnophobia Wreath
1, Cut the center out of 3 paper plates. Glue the plates together to make a sturdy ring. Or you could cut 2 rings out of cardboard and glue together.
2. Stretch the creepy cloth out lengthwise, leaving it folded across the width.
3. Using hot glue, attach one end of the folded length to the back side of the ring.
4. Wrap the cloth around the ring, adjusting the width of the cloth as you wrap – so the ring is completely covered by the cloth.
When you reach the end, use a bit of hot glue to tuck the final end under the cloth.
When the ring is completely wrapped, if you find the creepy cloth isn’t staying put, you can use a bit of hot glue in several places between the cloth and the ring, to hold it in place.
5. Tie a black ribbon around the ring at the top to hang the arachnophobia wreath.
6. Arrange and attach 2 or 3 small pumpkins near the bottom of the wreath.
7. Attach a few spiders scattered around the ring.
Your arachnophobia wreath is ready to frighten your guests!
Variation: Day of the Dead Wreath.
You could use foam or plastic plates instead of paper, but you do need to glue at least 2 together for sturdiness.
