You may remember our bottle cap spiders from last October–they were a big hit in our house. So big that Juliet asked to make them again this year. We did, and I”ll share those with you soon, but first, I wanted to share my potential halloween costume for this year:
I present to you: lady with big spider in her hair. (Look at her–she has NO idea that there is a spider in her hair.)
It’s really easy to make, and kids think it’s hilarious (or at least mine do.)
Here’s how to make one. Find the biggest bottle cap you can–this one came from a peanut butter jar. Cut out a circle of creepy-ish scrapbook paper, mod podge it on, add googly eyes and wait for it to dry.
Then hot glue some pipe cleaner legs and an elastic headband to the underside. Add a circle of felt over all of it to secure.
Oh yeah. And don’t forget to add some felt fangs. Makes him even more terrifying.
When he dries, you can wear it on your head like a crazy hat.
And then post pictures of yourself wearing it on the internet.
Yeah….it might be time for a new hobby…
What about you? Do you dress up with your kids for Halloween?
(By the way, the first photo is a picture of Juliet wearing the hat–she might try to steal my costume….)
