October Craft Ideas!

20 Sep

Here are some fun and easy craft ideas for October!  

Easy Halloween Wreath

You will need:
8″ styrofoam wreath
2 2″ strips of orange fabric 44″ long
1 2″ strip of black fabric 12″ long
Metallic trim (optional)
1 yucky rubber spider
Craft glue

Do not worry about the type of fabric you are using. It is the color effect we are 
after, anything that is orange and black will work. Wool, felt, satin, cotton, etc.

Instructions:
Wrap the orange strips around the wreath to cover the base entirely. Glue ends 
down in the back. Do not worry about raw edges showing.

Wrap metallic trim around the wreath in the same manner and bring ends to 
the back and glue down. This step is optional but I think it gives some extra 
“snap” to the end result.

Tie black strip in a bow and attach at the top with glue.

Tie black thread around the body of your yucky spider and hang down from the 
middle of the wreath. Glue the thread ends in the back of the wreath as well. Let 
the spider hang free. This is the spider’s web.

It is so simple and the kids will have fun hanging all sorts of yuckies from the 
wreath. It also costs next to nothing if you use odd and ends from around the 
house. Enjoy!
