The bewitching hour or, shall I say, day is about to begin! Tomorrow, kids of all ages will be ditching the norm and changing into another character with their Halloween costumes! Last night, I got the chance to wear my costume for the first time! Can you guess you I was? I’ll give you a picture in the next post. Anyway…..before all the Halloween fun begins, there is still time to make one more decoration! Gather your kids, gather your friends, gather whoever and enjoy making some Halloween Spiders!
Paper or Foam Cups
Acrylic Paint-Black, White, Orange, Green, Red, and Purple
A Round Sponge
Red and Green Sharpies
8 Pipecleaners-Red, Orange, Purple, and Neon Green
1. Paint circles of the 6 various colors, with round sponge, onto cup. Set aside to dry.
2. Line up all the pipecleaners and cut in half. Bend each half about 1/3 of the way down. Set aside.
3. Glue the wiggle eyes onto the cup. Draw a smile with the red Sharpie and add a tooth with white paint. Use the green Sharpie to draw a circle nose. You can also make dots for cheeks with the various colors.
4. For the legs, poke the shorter end of the pipecleaner into the cup and repeat with the rest, until legs are circling the bottom portion of the cup. Bend the bottom of the long end to create a foot.
