Lace Spider Web Wreath

I have not been in the mood to decorate for Fall yet at all.   But yesterday I picked up a copy of Women's Day Halloween Celebrations hoping for some inspiration.  I found a bunch of great ideas inside but these lace spider webs really got me thinking...

I decided to take the project one step further and connect a series of the lace spider webs together to form a Halloween wreath.  I even happened to have several embroidery hoops on hand.  Perfect!
After my son hopped on the school bus my little one and I set out to find a few lace tablecloths at the thrift store and Halloween embellishments at Dollar Tree.  During nap time I was able to put the whole wreath together.

I laid out the small embroidery rings on a larger hoop to figure out how to configure the wreath.
Then I sprayed the outer rings with a shot of semi-gloss black spray paint.  (I also sprayed the larger hoop white.)
While the paint was drying I cut out interesting pieces of the lace to form the webs.
When the paint was dry I put the embroidery hoops back together with the lace and trimmed the excess from the back.  Then I used my glue gun to attach the small hoops to the larger one and added my spiders and crow.

Done!
