I bought this burlap ribbon from a nearby craft store called Riots and had it sitting in my craft storage since a few days. Now that Halloween is coming soon, I thought of making a beautiful yet not-so-scary DIY Halloween wreath with it. This simple spider wreath is very easy to make and is a great front door decoration idea for Halloween.

Steps- How to make a DIY Halloween wreath

Watch the video at the top or follow the below steps to make a DIY Halloween wreath with burlap flowers and spiders. This is such a simple and fun Halloween home decor idea which is not so creepy or scary.

Step 1

First, get a foam or wooden wreath ring and burlap ribbon. If the ribbon is too wide, cut it into approximately 2.5 cm wide and start wrapping it around the ring. Fix it in place using some hot glue while wrapping. Make sure you wrap it really tight.

Step 2

Let’s make the flowers now. Cut the burlap ribbon into 4 strips each of 20 x 2 cm.

Step 3

Take a strip and glue the tips together to form a circular shape. Then, put some glue inside the circle and stick it to the opposite side to form an 8 – shape. Do the same for all the 4 ribbon strips.

Step 4

Glue them on top of each other as shown below. We have made the first layer of  the burlap flower.

Step 5

Let’s make one more layer for the flower which is a bit smaller than the first layer.

For this, cut the burlap ribbon into 4 strips each of 11.5 x 2 cm. Then make four 8-shapes out of those strips and glue the 8-shapes together on top of the first layer similar to the previous steps.

Step 6

I wanted to add a bit of pumpkin colour to my wreath. So I glued a small piece of orange felt paper at the centre of the burlap flower. You can get even more creative by cutting a small pumpkin-shaped piece out of the felt rather than going for the round one.

Step 7

I made one more flower of the same size and another flower which is a bit bigger in size. Then I glued them on the wreath ring as shown below.

(For the bigger flower, I used longer strips which measures approximately 23 x 2 cm for the outer layer and 14.5 x 2 cm for the inner layer).

Step 8

Time to make the spiders! Get 4 black chenille sticks and twist them together at the centre.

Step 9

Bend the tips of the sticks on each side to form a V-shape as shown below. Then get a small piece of chenille stick and twist it around the centre to form the spider’s body.

Make as many spiders as you like and glue them on to your burlap wreath. I wanted to keep it simple and not very scary or spooky. So I opted for just 2 spiders.
