Welcome your guests with this perfectly creepy spider wreath!
A quick, easy dollar store project. Total Cost is around $16 USD

While the spiders are drying, use a twist tie to secure one end of a garland to the wreath. Wrap the garland around the wreath. Using another twist tie, connect the garlands to each other and continue wrapping. Use one more twist tie to connect the final ends of the garland, as well as to secure this end to the wreath. Make sure none of the wreath is visible.
Glue the battery pack to the back of the wreath. Wrap the lights around, then use hot glue to secure the lights where you want them positioned. I added the batteries, so I could see where the lights were going to look best.
Glue the spiders to the wreath. To make the hanging spiders, just hot glue the thread to their bellies and to the garland.
For added spidery goodness, I very carefully used the glue gun to produce those normally annoying spider webby tendrils that appear after squeezing out some glue.
Hang, then step back and enjoy your wreath.
