Time to keep this non-creepy Halloween train rolling! While I know spiders aren’t for everyone, with a touch of paint, they become less scary and more colorful and fun. Not only is this a cheaper DIY to make (I got a bag of 150 spiders for $3 at Target), but it’s next to impossible to mess up. So go ahead and pour yourself a glass of hard apple cider and get crafting! Here’s how:
– Craft store pumpkin
– Spray paint
– Plastic spiders
– Cloth tarp or cardboard
– Gold leaf (optional)
Working outside, lay your plastic spiders on your tarp/cardboard, clustering them in groups (one for pink, one for yellow, etc) and spray paint. Let sit until completely dry. All you have to do after that is apply a dab of hot glue to the back of the spider and attach to your pumpkin!
I didn’t care for the stem on the fake pumpkin, so I went ahead and covered it with gold leaf. If you decide to do that, just follow the instructions on the back of the box.
