My roommate and I went all out for Halloween this year, and I mean we decorated till we collapsed. I have never been so tired, but on the plus side, the pinterest challenge spurred me to make one of the crafts I pinned to my Halloweenie board.
I followed the directions, switching out batting for the Halloween spider web you find everywhere,.
Tools and Materials
- 1 foam egg (I used a Styrofoam ball)
- spider web
- 1 white stocking
- Plastic spiders in various sizes, I used two sizes – tiny and regular
- Hot glue gun
Spider Egg Sac How-To
To Make each egg sac, I wrapped the Styrofoam ball in a layer of white spider web. Make sure the layer is plenty thick. Starting with the smaller spiders, I hot glued spiders to the webbing. Then I pulled a white socking over the ball and webbing. I finished it by hot-gluing larger ones on the outside.
I wound up making two egg sacs and I hung them from the entryway chandelier at two different heights.
Check out the close up of these “eggs” ewwww. I really even gross myself out sometimes.
The rest of the weekend was spent decorating the rest of the living room and house. If you follow me on instagram you may have caught a few glimpses.
Like in our living room where Ryli wrote a warning to all of our party guests…
We found some great fake barbed wire at Walmart, and we originally planned to “barb-wire” our front door until we realized we had about two feet of it. Then we decided the fireplace was the next best thing.
We were also channeling some Batman this weekend as well. Ryli made some very cute black bats out of egg cartons and suspended them with fishing line so it looked like they were flying.
