Embroidery Hoop Halloween Wreath Tutorial
This wreath is made using an embroidery hoop. These are just a few dollars at the craft stores, or you can purchase one online. First I painted the embroidery hoop with the black FolkArt home decor chalk paint. I love working with this paint because it dries quickly and has a very soft finish that always looks good! The spider was painted with the copper brushed metal paint which gives it a great metallic finish.
The spider was a little bland, so I decided he needed some sparkle. I ended up adding a few coats of the Mod Podge Glitter formula in gold and hot glued one of the black spiders for some dimension.
After the paint dries attach the black gauze fabric in between the hoops and cut off the excess. I let it gather up in a few places for some texture, and left a little portion open.
Then I added the glow in the dark spider web across the top of the hoop and placed some cute little spiders on there.
In order to disguise the wooden blocks that allow you to tighten the loop I used the cooper wire and just wrapped it around. My original plan was to make that look like the stem to the black pumpkin. I don’t think that necessarily translated, but I still like the modern touch! I did also end up painting the screw in the copper paint to hide that.
To attach the ribbon I just strung it through the back side of the wire and hot glued it in place.
Then I glued the big wooden spider on the top of the ribbon and used that to hang it on the door.
This is a very quick and easy wreath to whip up, and if you save the black hoop, you could very easily change it out for next year!
