Halloween Trick Or Treat Spider Nightmare!

This is just a mad, mad idea …… I had a few marshmallow poles left over from my Boo Brew …. and thought what on earth am I going to do with them,….. apart from eating them!
IMG_0006When, all of a sudden  I had a moment of erm ….. inspiration?   I tied four poles together with a little black cord, and then covered it over with a short length of the black web ribbon I got from Michaels in Las Vegas last year …. the happy memories flooding back to me  as I did it.  I used my trusty glue gun to glue the ribbon ends together as it was very quick and I didn’t have to wait for anything to dry.
IMG_0004Then,  glue gun still in hand, I began to randomly glue down plastic spiders all over the bundle ….. The spiders came from DiscountUK and cost just £1 for a huge bag of 72 of the creepy blighters and my aim is to use them all up before this Halloween is over!!
IMG_0007I think they each took me no more than 5 minutes to put together …….
IMG_0008……. and probably cost me less than 50p each to make, and they are, I have to say, my favourite Halloween make this year …… so far!
