Today – How to make a Halloween spider web wreath, the perfect fun family friendly indoor Halloween decoration.
I really shouldn’t be allowed into Hobbycraft unsupervised. Last week I came back with a huge bit of orange fur. I bought it for no reason other than it was really cool! I wasn’t sure what to do with it so, after a range of questionable ideas, I finally settled on a Halloween wreath.

I cut a strip of fur, long enough to go all the way round the polystyrene ring. It was wide enough to wrap around it with a small gap at the back.
I sewed up the back by simply ‘zig-zagging’ between the the edges.
Once I’d gone all the way round I could gently rearrange any lumps. I then give the cotton a final tightening to keep it all in place.
I turned it the right way up and smoothed the pile of the fur in one direction so it sat flat. Next I wrapped a glittery black ribbon around it an securing at the back.
Then I ‘re-fluffed’ the fur.
I made the spider out of part of a kit from Hobbycraft. I stuck the two foam balls together to form the head and body, poking in pipe cleaner legs and adding a face, all secured with a little glue.
Once he had dried the spider was added to the wreath. I have it crawling out of the middle (in a fairly non-menacing way).
The wreath has taken pride of place in the living room along with fluttering bats and all manner of pumpkin related bits and pieces. I can’t wait for the boys to get home so they can get their costumes on and enjoy their ghost sandwiches, pumpkin dippers and sweeties.
I’ll think I probably enjoy Halloween even more than the kids, Yay!
