It’s officially October which means Halloween is just around the corner! I don’t typically decorate much for Halloween, but as the kids get older they have been requesting more holiday decor and I can’t turn them down. Today, I’m sharing a super easy DIY project for Halloween that anyone can do! All you have to do is shop around your home and maybe take a quick trip to the store. Would you believe this adorable wreath is made mostly from cardboard, ping pong balls, pipe cleaners and hot glue?
Here is my fun DIY Spider Wreath Using Ping Pong Balls. See, not all spiders are scary! They can be cute too.
Here is a list of supplies you will need to make your own:
- 48 ping pong balls
- 8 black pipe cleaners
- black matte spray paint
- black paint
- hot glue
- black ribbon
Using a large mixing bowl as a guide, draw a circle onto your cardboard.
Using a smaller mixing bowl, draw a second circle inside to use as a guide for the inner circle. Cut out your wreath.
You can pick up ping pong balls at most stores, but I found the best deal on Amazon!
Start by gluing ping pong balls along the outside edge.
Then, fill in the rest of the wreath. Make sure to set aside two ping pong balls for the eyes!
Spray paint the entire wreath using a black matte spray paint, then glue on the remaining two white ping pong balls and paint two eyes.
Flip the wreath over and hot glue the black pipe cleaners to the back.
