2. Pull off small amounts of orange, yellow, and black modeling clay.

3. Roll and flatten the orange and yellow clay into ovals ranging in size from 3/4 inch to 1-3/4 inch high. Roll and flatten black clay into small circles.

4. Attach the black clay pieces to the yellow and orange clay pieces; then attach the eyes in pairs. Follow the clay manufacturer's instructions to bake the eye shapes.

5. Base-coat the tin sign with purple acrylic paint and let the paint dry. Write "Dare To Enter!" on the sign with a pencil. Use dimensional paint to apply squiggly lines on the lettering.

6. Hot-glue the sign, eyes, and spiders to the wreath. Separate the webbing and drape it on the twigs of the wreath.

More Ideas:

  • For a truly spooky welcome, sculpt the eyes using glow-in-the-dark modeling clay.
  • Adhere the eyes to place cards cut from black card stock. Label them with glow-in-the-dark paint pens.
