Crafting a spider wreath is a fun way to spend an afternoon.
And October is the perfect month to celebrate fun in Halloween decor.
And add in another layer to my craft-creation-obsessions: I was recently inspired by ceiling medallions and their perfect shape as a wreath base.
So I was compelled to make this Halloween door decor that ranks high as my current favorite craft.
Three reasons: easy-to-make, inexpensive, and tons of wow-factor.
For this project, I used exterior paint (the shade is Fragrant Cloves from Olympic Paints and Stains) on a polyurethane medallion from Fypon. Since it’s polyurethane painted in exterior paint, it withstands weather perfectly. (And surprisingly this medallion is less than $40.)
After the paint was dry, I spent a meditative afternoon applying about 250 plastic spiders to give the spider wreath a spooky-elegance that reminds me of a lace-like effect from the street.
Who knew it was so easy to help spiders become so sophisticated?
