snake wreath

I'm into plastic snakes this Halloween, so apologies to the snake-o-phobic (anyone know the real term?). This creepy wreath originated with Martha Stewart, but Amber at The McIllece Spot made a snake wreath turned out exactly like Martha's, so she gets a gold star and a craft award. That's not easy! A grapevine wreath is the perfect snakey background for a wreath covered with plastic creepers. Find your wreath and snakes at the dollar store. [how to make a snake wreath]

Project Estimate:

  • Grapevine wreath, $1
  • Plastic snakes, a few packages, $5 and up
  • Floral wire, on hand or $1
  • Wire cutters, on hand or $1
  • Spray paint or black acrylic paint, on hand or $1 and up

Total: $6 and up

    I just made this last week! It turned out great! Very easy, but at the moment, the dollar stores here don’t have any large rubber snakes. However, Walmart does have $1 snakes :)

    As an FYI, you can purchase a bag of 48 vinyl snakes on Amazon for just a few bucks ($7 or so). Shipping bumps the price up a few bucks but it’s still a better deal than the dollar stores…
