Follow these easy instructions to make your own Halloween Spider Wreath!

Halloween Spider Wreath

Here’s what you need to start!

  • Pinecones
  • Black Spray Paint
  • Wreath Form (I just cut cardboard from a pizza box)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • 5/8″ Backer Rod for Legs, found at hardware stores or HERE
  • Eyes (I used milk carton lids)
  • Bow

Halloween Spider Wreath- what you need









Start building the wreath by putting pine cones on the wreath form.  I used thin yarn to wrap around the pinecones and the form.

Here’s what the back looks like.

Halloween Spider Wreath Back

Add some blobs of hot glue to the back to hold the yarn.

Also squeeze some hot glue on the front- under and between pinecones.

Get set up to spray paint.

Halloween Spider Wreath ready to paint

Paint it black!

I also painted a few single pinecones to make spiders with pipe cleaner legs.

Halloween Spider Legs paint it black

Add the legs!

Decide how long you want your legs to be.  I cut them about 20″ long.  Cut eight and glue them on using a low temperature glue gun if you have one.  If you’re using a high-temp glue gun, apply a blob of glue then let it sit and cool for a bit before sticking the leg on.  If the glue is too hot, the foam leg will melt- you’ll know if the leg keeps disappearing.

Add the eyes and a bow!

I used milk carton lids for the eyes but you could use whatever you have on hand.  I used orange felt for the bow and added black paint dots.  Use fabric or whatever you’d like!

Extra Black Pinecones

If you painted extra pinecones, add eyes and pipe cleaner legs.  You can set them around to decorate or hang them from the ceiling on strings.
