Yes, I know Wednesday has passed & I did not share a restaurant review with you. Sorry. We didn’t try any new restaurants this week, but I guess I could review one of our favorites….. We’ll see.
But TODAY we’re talkin’ Halloween crafts! Woo Hoo! Last year my oldest wanted a cute something to wear to school during the week of Halloween. (We don’t do skulls, crossbones, monster crap, etc around here.) She LOVES her hair, so we decided on a cute headband craft. It’s super fast & easy! (My kinda craft!)
Take a regular, plastic headband –
Then you need a piece of scrap cloth, some pipe cleaners, 2 googly eyes, and a hot glue gun.
First, you will wrap your strip of cloth around the headband & hot glue it on the inside. (Sorry I don’t have step-by-step photos, but this was very much pre-blogging days.) While the glue is cooling off, take 2 white pipe cleaners (we used sparkly white ones) and cut them in 1/2. These will be your spider legs. Hold all 4 pieces in your hand & take your long (orange) pipe cleaner in your other hand. Wrap the long orange pipe cleaner around the 4 pieces until it’s as large as you want it. This is your spider’s body. If you want it thicker, use 2 orange pipe cleaners.
Once the body & legs are together, glue your spider to the headband & then glue on googly eyes. Viola! All done!
