With a little witchcraft, you can set the stage for a spooky evening at your front door. Light a warm path to your door with luminarias and a lighted grapevine garland framing the doorway.

Orange and Black Spider Wreath
A supersize felt spider waits for Halloween guests in this wreath, making a spooky decoration for your front door. Wrap one skein of thick orange yarn (or two skeins of thin orange yarn) around a 12-inch straw wreath form so the threads lay neatly. Hot-glue one end of black rickrack trim to the back of the wreath form; wrap the rickrack around the form, evenly spacing the wraps and securing the trim to the back of the wreath with hot glue. Trace our spider pattern, available below, onto white paper and cut out. Trace the pattern onto black felt using a chalk pencil; cut out with a crafts knife. Position the felt spider in the center of the wreath, using straight pins to fasten the ends of the legs to the back side of the wreath. Hang the wreath with a wide black ribbon.

Settle the wreath in between pumpkins or hang with a thick silk ribbon.
