September is here so I feel like it’s fair game to start sharing Halloween ideas! I love decorating for Halloween, but as a busy mom of five, I don’t have as much free time as I used to for DIY decor. So here is a simple Halloween embroidery hoop wreath that you can make in about 15 minutes!
Using a wooden embroidery hoop as the base of your wreath is an easy and inexpensive way to create a modern, streamlined look.
Here are the other materials I picked up at the craft store: (affiliate links below)
- 14″ wooden embroidery hoop
- plastic spiders in variety of sizes
- black and white ribbon
- spiderweb in a bag
- black acrylic craft paint
I started by painting the hoop black and letting it dry. The cool thing about using an embroidery hoop is the two different rings allow you to create the layer of spiderweb by stretching it over the inner hoop and then snapping it into place. I didn’t even need to use any glue to hold it in place! Once the spiderweb was stretched over the hoop and in place, I trimmed the back. To attach the spiders on the hoop I used hot glue. I also placed a few spiders inside the hoop by attaching them directly to the spiderweb material.
The last touch was to add the ribbon and bow to hang the wreath. I loved it even more when I hung it up on my door!
That’s it! A really easy wreath to make and hang on your door or as part of a Halloween display. It would be really fun to create several of these with different sized hoops too! Check out these other projects we have created for Halloween with embroidery hoops:
