I chose something easy. A halloween wreath. Here is what I used...
First I used this yarn I just found at Michael's, it was on sale! It is called Angel hair. Love it!
What I loved about it is it had this fuzzy sort of appearance and would give me a spiderweb effect.
Next I just used a simple styrofoam wreath.
To adorn I finally get to use the black glitter spiders I got for over 50% off a year or two ago but just never used...
First I added a dot of hot glue on the back of the wreath to secure the yarn.
Then I just wrapped... and wrapped... and wrapped the yarn. I wrap a few round and then push it back to meet the rest so it is nice and flush and you don't see any exposed styrofoam.
Then when I went around and met up from the beginning, I again secured it with a dot of hot glue.
Next I added the spiders via hot glue. I'll wait to show you at the end what it looks like. but I wanted a way to hang it up. So I just used a piece of the same yarn tied it and then glued the knot to the back of the wreath, so no one would see it. :)
I clipped off the excess once the glue was dry (no need to ruin more scissors!).
Ta Da! We are done!
I totally love it and it was super easy, fast, and simple to make. Now I can get back to finishing my power point presentation for work.
Happy halloween! :)
