I love Halloween and all the decorations and costumes that go with it :) Today's post is all about spiders. We are going to make 2 spiders today and both are super easy and inexpensive.
Lets start with our wooden spider
you will need-
a short length of 2x4
wire (guage16 or smaller, you can use a wire coat hanger)
hot glue gun
and small circles for eyes (I made mine out of sculpty)
Sand and paint your block/blocks. I painted mine neon yellow.
then drill 4 small holes on the side of your spider. The ends that have been cut.
I hot glued my eyes on
Cut your wire about 5-6 inches and make 8 lengths.
This part is the tricky part. You need to have 3 bends for each leg and the twist for the feet
lets start at the feet-make a small twist and then bend the wire up so your twist can sit flat on the surface. Once you bend your leg up let that length (the main height) be about 2-3 inches long then bend to over about 1 inch and then you should have a smidge left to bend down into your drilled hole.
that sounds confusing so lets just say you want a little to stick into the hole and then you want the rest of the leg to bent how it looks in the picture :)
Glue each leg into place so it doesn't fall.

Here is my fun holiday shelf. This is the main place I decorate every season. I had told some of the other girls about my shelf and they wanted to see it.
