Ribbons and Spiders Halloween Wreath
1 Styrofoam Wreath (I got an 18" wreath)
Orange Ribbon at least 7/8" wide. (I ended up having to get 4 rolls of this. I got the Celebrate It Basic Basic Ribbon from Michael's. I suggest getting wider ribbon...the wider it is the less you will need.)
Sparkly Orange Ribbon at least 7/8" wide. (I ended up having to get 4 rolls of this. I got the Celebrate It Basic Basic Ribbon that sparkles from Michael's)
Thin Black Ribbon (The other tutorial specifies fringe ribbon. I just got 2 kinds of thin ribbon because I didn't like any of the fringe ribbon I saw, one sparkles and one is more lacy)
Knitting needle, pencil, or something pointy to poke ribbon into wreath
Hot Glue Gun
Spiders (I got a few different types just for fun)
Any other decorations you want (I got an LED black sparkly pumpkin. I chose not to use the bats in the picture, and had to get more spiders and ribbon than what are pictured)
Halloween spider-webbing (the stuff you stretch and put on trees, etc)
Step 1: Cut your orange ribbon and orange sparkly ribbon into lengths that are at least 7/8" long, but no more than 1 1/4" long. You want them to be square-ish.
Step 2: IF you notice your ribbon fraying, use the lighter to lightly burn the ends. It will melt the ribbon and prevent fraying
Step 3: Place a small drop of craft glue on the back of each piece of ribbon
Step 7: Cut and place your white spider webbing (if desired). You don't need much...and you don't even have to secure this other than wrapping it around your wreath in any way you like.
Step 8: Place your spiders and other decorations. Secure them with adequate amounts of hot glue.
Step 9: Place your hanging strap. Wrap one end of the black ribbon around the wreath...tie in the back, poke into Styrofoam and secure with hot glue. When your strap is the desired length, secure the other end in the same way.
