Halloween trees don’t have to be the kind you see at the craft store that are thin scraggly branch fests. Bust out some Christmas trees and give them a spooky makeover with DIY ornaments. I’ve Halloween ornaments that were witches, black cats, monsters, snakes, dioramas and even doll part stew. Today, I’m sharing EASY (and I mean easy) stenciled spider web ornies.
- Fabric spray paint
- Paper spider webs
- Ready made ornaments
- Craft felt
- Craft glue
- Toy spiders
Place spider webs onto craft felt. The webs will act as a stencil for the spray paint. Mine were paper, but any kind of decorative spider web will work.
Using several light coats apply spray paint. I used a paint specifically for fabric, but you could also use regular spray paint or even stencil the design on with craft paint and a brush. Allow to dry completely.
After paint has dried cut out the felt spider webs and using craft glue adhere to a ready made ornament. You could also use other types of ornament substrates like foam, cork or plain wood rounds painted black. Gather spiders.
Using craft glue add spiders to your ornaments. Preferably glittered spiders, because – well ya know glitter just makes everything better.
BOOM! Decorate your orange Halloween tree like a boss! I love me a colorful Halloween, but there is something to be said about the classic look or orange and black.
As I always say, Halloween ornaments are not always that easy to come by so sometimes you just have to make your own. Good thing it is super easy to do.
