DIY Tulle Halloween Wreath With Oriental Trading!

*Disclaimer: Oriental Trading provided products to review. All opinions are my own*

One activity that I love is CRAFTING! There are SO many possibilities in the crafting world. Oriental Trading is one of the places that I love to shop for supplies! Now, if you haven't heard of Oriental Trading, you are missing out! When I was a little girl, my Mammaw used to have the catalogs and we would circle what we wanted and get so excited when they came! My 10 year old now does the same! As an adult, I still get excited when they come!

Oriental Trading has so much to offer for any occasion, however, they are our one-stop shop this Halloween for fun toys, games, candy treats, crafts, party supplies and our Halloween costumes & accessories! I made a Halloween wreath and I can't wait to show you how!  
With Fall and Halloween right about the corner, I wanted to get a head start on making things so that I am not rushing last minute. I can't believe how much Halloween crafting products that they have!

 What you need to get started:
Hot glue gun and sticks 

Getting Started

Each Section is going to take about 30-40 bundles of tulle. I cut each tube completely into pieces to make it easier. Measure 7 inches wide.
Stack one of each color on top of each other like seen above. Now pinch in the middle like below.
Take a pipe cleaner and cut it in half and tie it around the bundle of mesh.
Add the bundle on the wreath and wrap the pipe cleaner around the metal.
Each "level" took 10 across and 4 down to complete the whole wreath. Your progress will show through shortly.
Here is how I tied it so that you can see an example.
The back should look like this below when you have it full!
Take the tube ribbon and cut it about 12 inches long and knot around the wreath and pull through the front. Do this until you get it to look how you want. There is no wrong way to do this. It is a personal preference on how full that you want it.
After you tie your tubing around the wreath, poof it out and pull the mesh to neatness. 
You can now begin hot gluing your spiders all around it. Again, this is not a science, there is no wrong way. Glue as many as you want or don't want!
After you glue your spiders around the wreath, add the spider webbing around it in small amounts or large amounts. I didn't add much, just enough to give it effect.
Add generous amounts of hot glue on the back of the head, wings and feet of the bat and place in the middle of the wreath.
 Your wreath is now ready to hand and enjoy! 
Was it fun? How cute is this?!! I can't wait to do one for Christmas! Overall, these products were SO SIMPLE to use! If *I* can make one of these wreaths, you can too!
