Are you getting ready for Halloween? I’m loving all the spooky and scary stuff I’ve seen around the blogosphere. So much fun!
Today it’s all about creepy crawlers here at Making Home Base. Creepy Crawly Chevron all wrapped up into a perfect little Halloween Wreath.
Yep, I’m showing the first of my homemade halloween decorations!
I love Halloween decor that is cute and creepy not gory and frightening. Are you with me? If you’re like me you’ll love this wreath. It’s just the perfect amount of creepy and cute! It’s also very EASY to create! Handmade Halloween Decorations tip #1. Don’t pay $8 for a foam wreath form. Hit up Walmart or the Dollar Tree and grab a $2 pool wreath. Trim of a little bit with a bread knife, and duct tape the ends together. Bam, wreath form.
To cover the wreath I cut strips of chevron fabric about 2 1/2 inches thick. And started wrapping them around the wreath form and securing them with pins. Usually, I use hot glue but I ran out of glue sticks (What the what???) and you know what, I like the pins better.
Then all that’s left to do is EMBELLISH. I got these glitter spiders at Michaels and was so excited to find the spider web netting in my fabric stash. It was perfect for this wreath. I stretched it out across the back of the wreath and placed a few spooky spiders in the netting. Very creepy crawly, don’t you think? Lastly, I used some white fabric for a little ruffly touch. Eek! It’s so fun to get a little creative and make some spooky stuff! See more homemade halloween decorations here.
