Creepy Rat & Spider Halloween Wreath DIY and Blog Hop!

by Jillian Leslie on


Be warned, my daughter Lainey, who is 6, is all about "creepy" this Halloween. I think she's rebelling against my usual tendency to go "cute." So in honor of Lainey, I made the creepiest and hopefully the most stylish, wreath I could think of for Halloween this year.

The best part is this was one of the simplest wreaths I've ever made.


  • Grapevine wreath
  • Squeaky rats
  • Spider
  • Floral wire
  • Black shiny spray paint
  • There are black roses in the photo, but I ultimately decided not to use them


Arrange rats and spider how you like. Attach with floral wire.


Trim excess wire off ends.


Take outside and spray with black shiny spray paint. Wait to dry. That's it!



Now hang it and freak everyone out with your creepy wreath! Btw, my daughter loves it. It's hanging on our front door right now scaring the mailman!



What I also love about Halloween, is how creative my fellow blogger friends are!
