So this weekend I made a little spider box!
What? You don’t see it on my table? This is what my table looked like while trying to figure out the pattern for that little box! (I’m not a clean crafter, that’s for sure!)
Then I took a nap-and my brain kept working on it. I love how your brain is always working on solutions to problems, even if you’re not consciously working on it! I woke up with the perfect solution and sketched it out right away:
Want to make one? I’ve got the template for you! Just download the pdf, cut, and trace onto your best black spider paper, attach ribbon legs underneath and you’re done!
To hold it shut black velcro works perfect! It’s a great size for a small message and a piece of candy! Doesn’t it look cute perched atop this jam jar watching over the treats? I wrapped the jar in white organza to give it a little spider web feel to it.
Ready for the next project? Need some easy to make drippy and spooky votives for your Halloween get together?
All you’ll need are some glass votives and red acrylic paint. (I used the Christmas Red Folk Art paint from Plaid.)
Wash your votives so they are free of fingerprints, oils, and dust.
Hold the votive at an angle and put a bead of acrylic paint around the inner top edge of the votive.
To get it to get a good drip shape just tap the bottom of your votive on the counter top. The drips will appear on their own.
Just let them dry and drop in your LED tea lights! Easy peasy!
