Want to make a quick, inexpensive, and easy wreath for Halloween? Head to the dollar store and grab a wire wreath form and a black plastic tablecloth to make this Halloween plastic tablecloth wreath.
It’s the third Tuesday of the month and it’s time for the October Pinterest Challenge! If you aren’t familiar with this challenge, it’s basically a group of bloggers that get together each month to try a pin we’ve pinned to our boards. It’s a way of motivating ourselves (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! You can see all of our pin projects at the bottom of this post, so check them out and see what inspires you!

Halloween Plastic Tablecloth Wreath
My inspiration for this wreath came from a plastic tablecloth wreath tutorial from 2011. The original pin used strips of plastic tablecloth cut into 8″ x 2 1/2″ strips that were tied onto a wire wreath. Super simple, but a bit tedious.
- wire wreath form
- black rectangular plastic tablecloth
- white webbing
- hot glue gun/glue sticks
- double-sided tape
For my Halloween Plastic Tablecloth wreath, I decided to cut the giant strips using the natural folds in the tablecloth. Note: The strips can be cut into smaller widths with the same result.Halloween Plastic Tablecloth Wreath with dollar store supplies.Click To Tweet
Knot the tablecloth strip onto the wire form. It can be tied to the inside or outside wire.
Pull up about 2 1/2″ of the tablecloth up between each wire ring to form ‘bunny ears’. Continue to create ‘bunny ears’ until the outside ring is reached. When the outside ring is reached, wrap the plastic around the outside wire once or tie a knot. Continue making ‘bunny ears’, working back towards the inside of the wreath. When you come to the end of the tablecloth strip, tie a knot to the wire form and continue the process until the wreath form is covered. There will be about 2 1/2 strips per section and this should be enough to hold the loops in place and fill the wreath.
Note: There is nothing holding the loops in place, except for the initial knot and end knot.
Fluff up the strips by opening up the strips. Trim any excess ends to the same length as the loops. Leave as is or embellish it with spider webbing and some glitter spiders.
To attach the webbing, I used double-sided tape to attach it to various areas around the wreath.
Finally, I used hot glue to add the spiders. To prevent the plastic from melting, add the glue to the spiders and let it cool down before attaching the spiders so the plastic.
Note: This wreath is best used indoors or in a covered area that isn’t exposed to outdoor elements.
