(20 crafty days of halloween) glitter snake wreath

Day 17 and I still have a few more Halloween crafts up my sleeve for you! Glitter up some snakes and attach them to a grapevine wreath for a spooky touch to your door for Halloween. This is super easy to make and I already had most of the materials on hand (it probably helps that I’m a boy mom with a plethora of toy snakes at my disposal). If you are looking for a less spooky wreath, try making a candy corn wreath.


Grapevine Wreath
Black Spray Paint
Miniature Toy Snakes
Mod Podge
Sponge Brush
Hot Glue
String or Jute



Step 1: Spray the grapevine wreath with 3-4 light coats of black spray paint. Allow to dry in between coats to prevent the paint from running.

Step 2: Glitter the top of the snakes, using mod podge and Halloween colored glitter (I used Martha Stewart glitter in purple, orange and green). Brush a small amount of mod podge onto the top of the snake in little patches, glitter and continue mod podging/glittering until the entire top of the snake is covered. Allow to dry.

Step 3: Attach glittered snakes to grapevine wreath using hot glue.

Step 4: Tie a piece of jute or string to the back of the wreath and hang on your door, just in time for trick-or-treaters.

I'm Vanessa and it's my mission in life to spread my love of hot glue guns and glitter to others. I suffer from craft ADHD, regularly working on at least 10 projects at the same time and my craft room looks like a tornado hit it. My first craft book, Party in a Jar, was published in 2014. I look forward to crafting with you!
