Pumpkin Spider Halloween Wreath!

This is a sponsored post by Floracraft®.
 Pumpkin Spider Halloween Wreath!
I'm happy to be part of the FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Halloween Blitz!
 Check out all these fun Halloween Crafts in the free Full E-Book!

 I picked the adorable Pumpkin and Spider wreath to make with my own spin on it!
Floracraft sent me a box full FloraCraft Make It: Fun® Foam and
FloraCraft® Simple Style® Decorative Mesh in orange and green!
With all this Fun® Foam, I'm going to have many more great projects in the future!
 I used this 14 inch foam wreath with a 3 inch ball and a 1.5 inch ball.
 I used orange and black felt as well...and some pipe cleaners.
 I wrapped the foam around the wreath form. 
This just keeps the foam contained...and the under color orange too.
 There are places where the foam doesn't cover, but no worries.
 Just wrap the FloraCraft® Simple Style® Decorative Mesh around the wreath.
I love how it looks!
 I added a piece of green mesh at the top for hanging.
 Then made the spider by wrapping a big square piece of felt
around the Styrofoam ball.
 And hot glued on some pipe cleaner legs.
 I added an hourglass for fun...even though it doesn't show.
 And hot glued it right on to the wreath.
 I love it!
It's cute, creepy and perfect for Halloween!
 I love the texture and fullness of the decorative mesh!
 This is simple enough for older kids to help make too--and doesn't take long either!

Wire Wrapped Spider Web Necklace!

 Wire Wrapped Spider Web Necklace!
 You will need:
20 gauge wrapping wire
Spider Charm (I got mine here)
Small jump ring
Necklace chain
Jewelry pliers (these ones are good)

Start by wrapping the wire around in a circle about 3 inches wide 4 times.
Most of the wrapping I do by hand...except the tight twists, I use pliers.
 Then twist and wrap the wire across 3 times.
 Forming the structure for the web.
 Then wrap wire to form a pendant loop...

Bend the outside wires to form more of a hexagon shape.
Then twist and wrap the wire around each spoke.
 If you run out of wire,
just twist and wrap on some more...add extra twists and loops wherever!
 Wrap the wire around the center for stability and then clip the wire and tuck the end.
 Now use a jump ring to secure the spider to the web.
I love Halloween jewelry!
 Add a chain and wear it!
 I love it!
