Time really flies, doesn’t it? Just when you feel like you’re kind of getting used to the cold weather, you realize it’s almost Halloween! Whaaat? So some of you might have your creepy decoration all planned out but if you don’t – don’t worry, we got you covered. Read on to see just how easy it is to make this last-minute Halloween wreath.
I’ll be honest, this last-minute Halloween wreath is kind of a cheat DIY. You will start off with a premade wreath and just add some Halloween magic to it. But when you’re pressed with time, a good cheat is just what you need, right? So let’s not waste any more time and get right to it, shall we?
To make this last-minute Halloween wreath you will need:
- A grapevine (or similar) wreath
- Some wire (about twice the circumference of the wreath)
- Black cotton string
- A miniature spider to add some extra scariness
Let’s make this!
First, form a wire circle about the size of the wreath. If your wire is not stiff enough, you can make a double circle to add some sturdiness to it.
Now you can start weaving the net. We used a double string to add some thickness. Start off by tieing three strings from one side of the circle to the other. Knot them together where they meet in the middle, so you’ll have a nice center of the web.
Next, start tieing your string around the center, forming a web-like hexagon. Make sure you tie a knot at every intersection. Tie as many hexagons around the center as you like, until you are happy with the size of the net. Lastly, attach the circle to the wreath (we tied it firmly with the cotton string), add a scary little spider, and you are done!
