For the past few weeks, I have been on the hunt for an inexpensive Halloween wreath but after hitting TJMaxx for a few weeks, I didn't have any luck and I wasn't willing to fork out what they were asking for a "leafy wreath". That's when I found Just A Girl blog and this post on her Extreme Makeover. I couldn't help myself but try it out.
First I went to Hobby Lobby and picked up a wreath for $1.50.
Then, I spray painted it black. Added a little bit of poly fill to mimick spider webs (I didn't have anything else on hand and I wanted to make it the cheapest way I could. I told hubby that maybe I should just go around the house scrapping all the "real" spider webs off the ceiling corners, but he laughed at that idea!).
Then the kids helped me put a few little spiders on the painted, spidered webbed wreath. The spiders are made out of foam and had a sticky back so they were fairly easy to stick on.
To hang it up from the door knocker, I added some black ribbon.
Approximate cost: $2.50!!
And I love it! If I find the correct spidery web stuff, it will look even better, but for now, I am happy. :)
