Create a cute and easy cobweb wreath for Halloween!
I used to love decorating for Halloween, but lately, Halloween just doesn’t seem the same. Especially this year.
Now the only reason I look forward to Halloween is that once it’s over, Thanksgiving and Christmas come super fast!
If you know me, then you know I’m all about frugal home decor, and most of it I make myself. Which is why I love Dollar Tree so much!
Today I have a quick and easy Halloween DIY for you and after the tutorial, I’ll show you some of my other Halloween decorations. They’re also super cheap and easy to put together, so keep reading!
How to Make a Cobweb Wreath
What you need:
- Embroidery hoop
- Spider web
- Plastic spider rings
Usually, you can buy a bag of spider web with the spider rings already in them. I think I got mine at Walmart, but Dollar Tree has some, too.
Since I already had all of these items on hand, this cobweb wreath Halloween decoration didn’t cost me a thing to make!
What you do:
First, loosen the screw at the top of the embroidery hoop and take it apart.
Next, lay a small amount of spider web over the inside hoop. Then put the outside hoop back over the inside hoop and tighten them together with the screw.
Trim any excess webbing from the back.
Take a few of the plastic spiders and cut the rings off the back.
This is an optional step, but I chose to cut the rings off to make them look a little more realistic. The spiders still stick to the web so either way is fine.
Now just stick the plastic spiders onto the cobweb wreath at random places.
I only used two spiders for my cobweb wreath, but you can use as many as you want to make it super spooky!
Lastly, add a ribbon and hang!
Frugal & Easy Halloween Decorations
Here are a few of my cheap and easy Halloween decorations including the cobweb wreath. I don’t have them all out right now because my house is a wreck due to the renovations. So most of them are just confined to one little shelf.
Spooky Picture Frame
This was such an easy Halloween DIY. All I did was print out a spooky picture that I found online and put it in a frame. The frame came in a set of two that I picked up at a thrift sale a few years ago for only 50 cents.
Altogether this spooky Halloween picture frame cost me just 50 cents to make!
A couple of years ago I picked up this haunted photo from Dollar Tree. I thought it looked so creepy because when you look at it one way it just looks like a regular photo of two young men. However, when you look at it from a different angle, they both have monster faces.
I trimmed around the edges of the photo and placed it in a Dollar Tree picture frame. This creepy little decoration only cost me $2 to put together!
This is my Halloween shelf this year! Not much to it, but at least there are a few decorations up to celebrate the holiday. I’m sure my daughter will have plenty more in her room.
The two tombstones both came from Dollar Tree and so did the tiny skeleton heads. I already had all the decorations and I didn’t buy anything extra this year. However, all the decorations on the shelf cost less than $10!
