There is probably no better Halloween decoration for your front door than adorning it with a grapevine wreath wriggling with snakes! Making the wreath is super easy but the impact it brings on the front door is far better than just spooky – scarily charming and elegantly dreadful.

Halloween Wreath Directions:
- Paint the grapevine wreath with a light coat of grey spray paint. Left it aside for hours to let dry. Repeat the process for 3-4 times to give both the sides of the wreath several light coats of paint.
- Paint the snakes with a quick, light coat of primer. Left aside. You may have to wait for a couple of hours for the primer to dry on the rubber snakes.
- If you want, you can give the snakes a few light coats of grey spray paint after the primer coating.
- Assemble the rest of the wreath after the grapevine wreath and snakes are completely dry.
- Take the smaller snakes first and weave them through the wreath. It does not matter if they overlap each other. Use hot glue gun if needed to secure them in their places.
- Now, arrange the larger snakes on the wreath and attach them with hot glue. However, use the floral wire to secure the heavier, larger snakes because only glue cannot secure them in their places.
- After the process is complete, use another coat of grey paint. Let it dry and then hang the gorgeous wreath on your door.
- To make the making process simpler, you can just secure the snakes to the grapevine wreath and then use grey spray paint to both sides of the wreath. Let it dry and your Halloween grapevine wreath is ready to be hung!

Look to see what color background door, fireplace, or wall you will display your wreath. This will help you create a contrasting wreath color for your final wreath. Using grey paint instead of the typical black color will give your Halloween grapevine wreath will look great on colored background, while dark brown or even purple looks great on a light backdrop. To add an interesting touch, you can adorn the snakes by using colored glitters or painting them in glow-in-the-dark paint.
