Halloween Wreath

I love Halloween.
I have been daydreaming how I would like to decorate our home for this great month. I don't usually care for most store wreaths because they are expensive + not quite my taste.
This year I was determined to make my own for the same price as a store bought one. The total cost for this project was about $20 + I am quite happy with it. It can also be changed year to year with different accessories.


Grapevine wreath
Spider Webbing
Black spray paint
Spiders + accessories

Spray paint the wreath black. I used a semi gloss and love how it looks shiny, but feel free to use any type.
Let dry and continue spray painting it black until fully coated.

After it has dried + the paint has set, you can start decorating it. I took the faux spider web and stretched it across the back of the wreath then added some spiders. Then I put some webbing on the front and attached the rest of my critters.

I hope you enjoy it + consider making your very own wreath this year!



  1. VERY scary!!!!
    Looks great against your door!

    {by the way: I LOVE the picture of you on the right! Very classy looking... And so pretty!}


  2. Woah great job! My Mom Always made her own wreaths for the holidays but I haven't had nerve enough to attack it myself yet... this looks so doable though, and just enough Halloween without being tacky! Thanks for sharing :)

    PS. You're whole blog is adorable too-- can't wait to look around some more.


    1. Thanks! It is a lot easier than I expected, plus if you mess up you can start over!

  3. I love it!!
    I made a wreath a few years ago but while i was strolling through michael's i found a wreath that i fell in love with (and it works for all of fall). I've got a few things to make it more "Halloween-y" but i love it just as is. :)
    I LOVE Halloween as well! :)

    1. It is the best! I am jealous that you found an awesome wreath, you will have to share a picture of it.

  5. Ah the joy of creating...doesn't it feel good?
