DIY Halloween Decorations - EEK Doorway Wreath After

Prepare: Always work in a well ventilated area and cover your surroundings with a drop cloth. Wrap your wreath in a patterned ribbon of your choice. Wipe down your wood pieces with a microfiber cloth to remove dirt and dust.

Glitter: Now, it’s time to paint your letters! First, shake your can of Glitter spray paint for one minute after the mixing ball starts to rattle. Hold the can upright 12-14” away from the letters, and spray in a sweeping motion. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart. Repeat this process for the Craft Foam Balls using Glitter Midnight Black. Let everything dry for about 20 minutes.

Seal: Once the letters and craft foam are completely coated and dry, apply the Glitter Clear Sealer to each piece with the same technique mentioned above. Then, allow the everything dry for at least an hour.

Assemble: Cut pipe cleaners to desired length and insert them into the craft foam to create a spider. Once spiders are assembled follow the directions on your extra-strength glue’s label to glue the letters and spiders to the wreath.
