Materials List

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Extruded Foam Wreath: 14”
  • 4" Gathered Lace: Black
  • 6" Flat Lace: Black
  • 5 Silk Roses: Red
  • Acrylic Paint: Red
  • Berry Stems
  • Spray Paint: Black
  • Large Black Spider
  • Glitter: Red
  • Low-Temp Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Wire Cutters
  • Sequin Pins


  1. Cut a 45” length of the 6” flat lace.  Cover the wreath with the lace by wrapping the 45” edges around to the back and secure in place with pins and glue.  Pin and glue the gathered lace to fan out from the back of the wreath as shown.

  2. Paint the leaves of the roses red and while the paint is still wet cover them with red glitter.  As the paint dries it will secure the glitter to the leaves.  Spray paint the berries black and let dry.

  3. Cut the stems of the roses to about 1”.  Insert the roses into the wreath along the lower left side. Insert the berries and leaves around the roses.  Glue the spider crawling up the right side of the wreath.

That is an impressive and fancy looking wreath with the black lace. In fact, the whole setting in that image really looks perfectly wicked for Halloween.
