This is such a cute and creepy Halloweenie craft that you and your kids can do. Bubby is 10 and helped make this fantastic specimen and also thinks it is super cool! So easy and fun to make, let's get started!!!
Black Poster Board
Glitter Glue or Glitter Markers/Crayons/Colored Pencils, etc.
Fishing Line (or other clear line/rope)
Heavy Duty Tape
Crafty Headgear...don't forget!
Now you're ready to glitter-fy it. You can see in the picture just above that we started by outlining the outside edges with black glitter. You can do this however you desire and in whatever medium you choose, as long as it can be seen against the black. The glitter just really stands out and catches the light so great and looks super cool! We did all of the inside lines in silver glitter.
|Also notice that we added a center line to give us an anchor point for the center curves.|
Ok, get your cutie creepy spider guy...
Poke a little hole in his bottom and slide your fishing line, cut at your desired length, through the hole and tie a knot that is big enough so the line doesn't slip back out of the spider butt. We wanted the spider to hang down a good bit but not too much to be a nuisance when trying to get in and out of the room. Set spidey aside.
Here you can see it from the front with this pathetic close up. ;) That super small, bright green text in the picture says: "See here, from the outside, the board is just on the outside of the top of the door frame"
