Along Came A Spider Yarn Wreath is a quick and easy low-budget project. The wreath can be made in about a half a day. Use Halloween colors that are in your yarn stash or pick up craft yarn at the dollar store. For my wreath, I used Red Heart® Super Saver® yarn in black and pumpkin. I picked up the Styrofoam wreath at a craft store with a 40% off coupon and the pre-cut felt spiders at the dollar store. The spiders were available in both black and orange. The wreath would look good in all black with orange spiders or all orange with black spiders. Crochet every other row in black and orange for a traditional Halloween color scheme.
