"S" is for Spider Wreath

Craft: rolled paper Halloween spider wreath

Super fast and easy rolled paper wreath with black glittered edges and dangly spider:

Our freshly painted front door is the perfect backdrop for this Halloween season.

The hanging ribbon has a spider web weave in it:

Here's how I made the rolled paper wreath:

For this version, tear old book pages in half and roll into cones.  Hot glue cones in 3 layers around edge of plastic frame.

Apply white glue with a paintbrush to edges of the cones.
Sprinkle on black glitter:

2. The spider is plastic, I drilled a hole in his rear and threaded clear fishing line through the hole and around the back of the frame:
