This one is another take on yesterday’s bat wreath. Same basic techniques for wrapping the yarn and attaching it to the wreath. If you didn’t get a chance to read yesterday’s post, you can do so here.
It also took me a little longer than the bat wreath due to the fact I didn’t do any crossovers to deal with the curve of the circle.
After 2 re-run episodes of The Mentalist, this is the fruit of my labor (and my sweet little fur-baby Yoda, hanging with his Mommy). It’s looking good, says I! As you can see, I chose orange yarn for this one.
After 3 re-run episodes of The Big Bang Theory, I ended up with a complete yarn wreath. Now, what to add to make it special? Ah ha! Inspiration thanks to Seven Alive (here). Now, to face my fears… Spiders!
I found these creepy, hairy little guys at… I want to say Michaels, but don’t quote me on that. They came in a set of six… ewwwww. I really don’t like spiders!
Moving on… here is the finished product:
I found this cute ribbon at Michaels… says “Trick or Treat”. It was 6 feet long and I used the whole roll!
I hot glued some semi-transparent fishing line at different lengths to the back of the spiders. It was a bit difficult, since the backs were concave, but they stayed on, so I’m not complaining! The other end of the line was glued to the back of the wreath.
