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

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
