DIY $6 Dollar Tree Halloween door wreath |

Eery and dreary Halloween decor is just not my game. My kids, at their young ages, already know that I get freaked at their large rubber toy spiders and bats. Seriously, do they really need to make these things so realistic looking?!

So while I am no fan of spooky Halloween fun, I can totally handle cute spiders, friendly bats and googly eyeballs any day. Bring it on [adorable] ghouls!!

There was absolutely no fear when I put together this $6 Halloween wreath. Check out my ghoulish frugal fun…

Remember how I said my kids have my number when it comes to scary spiders and hairy bugs? My 5-year old thought it would be just hilarious one morning to place a very real-looking spider on the steering wheel. As this [frazzled] mom made her way down the driveway, probably late to be somewhere, the plastic spider fell between my legs. I never knew this 30-something body could scream, throw the car into park and jump out of the door as fast as this freaked out mom did!

Using craft scissors, cut the plastic spider web eye glasses apart.

You will only be using the spider web sections (and not the part you’d stick behind your ears).

Make a large, over-sized bow with the Halloween-themed wired ribbon.

Glue the bow to the top of the tray and cut triangles at the ends. If using wired ribbon, scrunch up the ribbon tails. (Yes, this is a technical term!)

Use a small section of the ribbon to form a loop and secure it with a tie (I used a grocery store twist tie).

Glue (or tape) this onto the back of the tray in order to hang it.
