Spider Wreath (interchangeable)

I have my spider wreath hanging on my door, and am excited to show it off to you!

 I was having a debate, but finally ended up adding the "eek" banner - thanks for the input on that.  Here it was without the banner:

I liked the simplicity, but I thought it needed just a little something else.  When I spotted some discarded burlap on my craft room floor (how's that for inspiration!) I just cut it into triangles and made a quick banner.  I hot glued the triangles onto a strand of yard and wrote on them with a paint marker:

Remember, this yarn wreath is a base for an interchangeable wreath.  So I can use it more than once!  So with the spiders, instead of hot gluing them directly to the wreath, I glued them to a strand of yarn.  Then when the glue was dry, I just tied the yard (with the spider attached) around the wreath.  I feel like a genius for figuring this out!  Love the dimension the spiders add:
Remember, here's the wreath as a baby shower version (the flower clump is tied on - you can read more about it here: Interchangeable Baby Wreath)

And now here it is, working as a Spider Wreath for Halloween - I love it!

Have you made a yarn-wrapped wreath yet??  Give it a try - it has endless possibilities!

I just love the little spider hanging down from the top of the wreath!!! Im working on a yarn ball wreath right now....

Looks great! I bet Trevor is in love with it ;)

What a lovely simple design. Can't wait to try.

I love that this wreath is interchangeable! It had a whole different look as a baby shower wreath! I love it both ways and I love the "eek." Super cute!

I love it! The eek makes it more put together I think! I am all for a decoration that's interchangeable too!

That is so fantastic! Love that you can interchange it. Thank you for sharing. Visiting from Fireflies and Jellybeans. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com/2012/10/make-it-pretty-monday-week-18.html Hope to see you at the bash!

So I feel really stupid for asking this , but I'm trying to make your wreath right now and the yarn doesn't wrap evenly around the wreath form because of the fact its round! How dis you compensate for this?

I had the same problem. Just keep the outer edge flat and overlap the inside of the circle, if that makes sense...if you look really close at the pictures you'll see that every 4th strand or so in the inner edge kind of stands out - it's because it's overlapping...hope that helps!
