Hello See Vanessa Craft readers! I’m Ginger from Ginger Snap Crafts, and I am so excited to be back for another 30 Crafty Days of Halloween! Eek! I love seeing everyone’s spooky ideas each year. This year I’m sharing this Eek! Ribbon Wreath that would be perfect on your front door. Best of all, it’s super easy to make & the kiddos can even get involved. Let’s get started!

SUPPLIES
metal wreath frame
lots of ribbon*
scissors
wooden letters to spell EEK
paint
paint brush
sand paper
 
*This much ribbon can get quite expensive if you went out & bought it all at once. I was lucky & was sent all this ribbon for free from the company a few years ago. You could also use strips of fabric for a less expensive option.

INSTRUCTIONS
 
First, I cut my ribbon in 13 inch lengths. My 9 year old daughter helped me do this!

You just keep going around until your wreath is as fluffy & big as you want it. I didn’t take a picture of this step, but be sure to trim all the frayed edges off when you’re finished tying.

ribbon-crafts-for-halloween I distressed them a little bit with some sandpaper.
