Welcoming Trick or Treaters

Our town has a lot of fall festivals, trunk-or-treats, and the businesses downtown also host trick-or-treaters. With all of those options, I am sadly hearing from other locals we will not receive many trick-or-treaters, which is not a problem for some of you. My dad said their neighborhood was voted by the newspaper the best place to trick-or-treat in their county. So whether you have 10 or 10,000 kids rushing your door next Monday, let's make it cute!

Let's start today by making a cute front door wreath.
Start with a grapevine wreath, twine, a piece of black felt, and 1 roll of adorable orange ribbon. I selected a 3 yard roll of 1.5"thick grosgrain polka dot.

I left about 9-12 inches of ribbon. Wrap the rest of the ribbon loosely around the wreath, which should leave you with enough to tie a bow on the bottom. Grab twine and scissors to make the spider web inside the wreath. I would start with a piece that is no longer than 2 feet- otherwise it will get tangly.
Weave the twine back and forth across the wreath to create a spider web. It helped to go across, scoot the twine over, then head back across focusing the intersection over the same place. I wanted the center of my spider web to be asymmetrical, BUT you can put yours wherever. Then with a separate piece create the circular part of the spider web by looping the twine over each spoke of the web as you cross over it.

Then you can add a plastic spider, OR puff paint a spider on a piece of black felt.
Then cut it out and glue, tie, or sew it onto your wreath.
