Tulle Halloween Wreath

I've been searching since July for Halloween wreath ideas for my front door. I finally decided to make an all black tulle wreath with a huge purple ribbon.

I bought my 18" wreath from the dollar store. I bought my tulle on sale at Joanns. I picked up a cheap can of black glossy spray paint from Walmart.I painted the wreath and let it dry. I has been in the 90's here so it didn't take long! I cut my tulle into strips. I didn't measure or worry about straight lines. I didn't want it to be perfect, I was going for scary! I started to tie my strips around the wreath when I thought about adding orange tulle. I didn't want to, I really wanted to stick to my original plan of ALL black. But the idea kept itching my brain so I added orange to the wreath. I am so glad I did!

Once I had tied all the tulle, I scrunched and fluffed until my scary Halloween wreath looked like a scary over grown caterpillar. I really wanted to leave it simple but I thought it needed something a little extra. I added a purple spider I picked up at the dollar store. I love how it turned! It was quick, easy, and inexpensive. My kind of craft!
